They are one of Australia’s most loved folk bands and now fans can mark their calendars again with the announcement that The Waifs are heading home for a national tour this September. The WA-founded outfit have announced the shows in support of their seventh LP, Beautiful You, due out next month and will kick off the tour with a number of performances in their home state starting on Thursday, September 10. The Waifs will perform in Kalgoorlie, Esperance, Albany, Perth, Geraldton, Carnavon and Broome throughout September with East Coast dates being announced shortly. Meanwhile, the ARIA Award-winning quintet have dropped their new single, 6000 Miles which will feature on the forthcoming album. The emotionally raw track is about singer and guitarist Vicki Thorn contemplating the distance between her home in Albany and her new residence in Utah, USA.
The Waifs will perform at the Perth Concert Hall on Tuesday, September 15. Tickets to the Beautiful You tour will be available from 9am on Thursday, July 23, from thewaifs.com. Beautiful You will be available from Friday, August 14, via Jarrah Records.
