UPDATE: Alex Cameron’s Melbourne headline show on February 14th has been upgraded to Corner Hotel to accommodate high demand. And Cameron’s February 13th show at Oxford Art Factory has also been hugely popular, with just a v-small handful of tickets remaining.
To celebrate the release of his wildly-adored sophomore LP Forced Witness, Australian musician and peculiar storyteller and Alex Cameron (together with Roy Malloy and the full band) have confirmed two very special and long awaited headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne this February surrounding their St. Jerome’s Laneway debut.
Since the release of his debut solo album Jumping The Shark (2016) and his second LP Forced Witness which dropped last month and only a year later, Cameron has proven he’s not just a stage character with whack dance moves and a borderline creepy vibe – rather he joins a nu-wave of misfit musos and shameless entertainers who are redefining pop. Recorded in Berlin in an old East German radio station, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas, and produced by Cameron along with Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado, Forced Witness is nothing less than extremely clever with driving rhythms and striking melodies complimented by recording-artist turned business partner and touring horn-player Roy Molloy.
In the last 18 months, Cameron has spent the majority of his time on the road in the Northern Hemisphere touring with the likes of Angel Olsen, Whitney and The Killers – so these shows featuring the whole band will mark their first headline shows in Australia in two years.
Tickets are on sale now. See you there.
