Jeremy Loops has announced that he will return to Australia after his 2016 sold out tour in support of his upcoming album Critical As Water. He plays Capitol on Tuesday, May 22.
Loops is from Cape Town. His debut album hit number one in South Africa, winning several awards along the way including MTV Africa’s Alternative Album of the Year’ and iTunes South Africa’s Album of the Year.
He recently opened for Twenty One Pilots on the European leg of their Blurry Face Tour and soon after headlined a sold out 30,000 ticket tour of his own across the United Kingdom and Europe.
Critical As Water is set for release on March 16. The theme of water is set to run deep through the album, and lead single Waves was written after Loops had gone surfing. “I grew frustrated trying to force the music because I knew the album was due, but one night after an incredible surf, I got home, picked up my guitar, and wrote Waves,” he said.
Critical As Water is out March 16. Jeremy Loops plays Capitol on Tuesday, May 22.
