To celebrate the recent announcement of their debut album Idiot Proverbs, set for release on Friday 12 January, Tiny Little Houses are thrilled to reveal their national album tour dates, scheduled for March 2018. The run of shows, presented by triple j, will see the band perform in Ballarat, Melbourne, Hobart, Wollongong, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.
In more exciting news, the Melbourne outfit have unveiled the video for their current single ‘Entitled Generation’, directed by Marie Pangaud.
Tickets for the March tour are on sale now via outlets listed below. Fans will also have the opportunity to purchase tickets via exclusive album pre-order + ticket bundles, available via their store.
While previous single and radio-hit ‘Garbage Bin’ was coined the ultimate slacker anthem for Gen Y & Z, the ferocious and thumping ‘Entitled Generation’ (added to rotation on triple j and FBi) finds founder and singer/guitarist Caleb Karvountzis questioning some of the shortcomings of his peer group.
“I think we have less resilience than our ancestors. We were raised this way. Who’s to blame? I don’t know, probably everyone. The song doesn’t answer any problems but maybe there aren’t any answers in this system.”
Tiny Little Houses have spent the last three years winning hearts and minds around Australia thanks to a succession of finely-crafted indie pop gems including ‘Milo Tin’, ‘Song Despite Apathy’ ‘Easy’, ‘Soon We Won’t Exist’, ‘Garbage Bin’ and most recently, ‘Entitled Generation’.
The follow-up to the four-piece’s first two EPs – You Tore Out My Heart (2015) and Snow Globe (2016) – Idiot Proverbs finds Tiny Little Houses growing up and getting more confident with where they can push their sound. As well as being the band’s most raucous collection of tunes so far, the album highlights the discernible progress of Karvountzis as a songwriter. Indeed, Idiot Proverbs presents wry reflections on growing up, finding your place amongst the chaos and falling short of your own (and others’) expectations.
The album finds Tiny Little Houses continuing their relationship with producer Schram (also known for his work with Paul Kelly, San Cisco and Loon Lake among many others) who was also behind the controls for most of the band’s previous efforts.
