Sydney’s 90s indie-rock legends The Clouds are treating their fans again, adding to the excitement surrounding their unexpected return to releasing records this year. The band have not only announced the release date for their latest single Beautiful Nothingness on October 16, but also the dates to the local leg of their upcoming national tour in November.
Extra excitement comes with news that they’ll be supported by their old touring buddies from the 90s, fellow Australian alt-rock band Falling Joys. Catch them together at the local leg on November 10 at Metropolis Fremantle.
Starting the year right with the release of their EP Zaffre in Feburary, their first in almost two decades, the four-piece went on to be the prime support acts for Blondie and Cyndi Lauper’s tour in April.
May saw frontwomen Jodi Phillis and Patricia ‘Trish’ Young feature at this years Sydney Writers Festival, with winter seeing the pair guest programmers on Rage in June, and the July artists in residence for radio station Double J. This saw Double J remember a number of The Clouds 90s hits with live versions of Say It, 4pm and House of the Sun.
The Clouds’s old guitarist Dave Easton and drummer Raphael Whittingham will also be on board for this tour.
The Clouds and Falling Joys play Metropolis Fremantle on November 10.
