Sorry... there are currently no upcoming events.
This December Australia's love affair with the UK's icon of literate pop, Lloyd Cole, continues when he returns to these shores following his 2019 sold out tour. Lloyd will tour to support his newly released album On Pain which features eight new original tracks, four of which are co-written by founding Commotions members Blair Cowan and Neil Clark, who also perform on the record. For this Australian tour Lloyd will be performing a mix of his newest music along with old favs.
On Pain was recorded in Lloyd’s attic studio, The Establishment, in Massachusetts. Says Lloyd “The challenge was to make music that I’d want to listen to, a record that might be able to stand next to records that I love……..I’m excited to still be finding new methods, new perspectives, new sounds."
Lloyd Cole has released 16 studio albums including three with The Commotions, eleven solo albums and one with influential German electronic composer Hans Joachim Roedelius (Cluster). Fans of Cole who have followed him over the years – from his rock/pop albums of the 1980s and 1990s, to his more acoustic, homegrown records of the early 2000s such as “Music in a Foreign Language,” to his full-band album “Standards” from 2013 – will want to experience the album performed live for its different musical approach and the work of a still-sharp lyricist.
Don’t miss this very special concert event showcasing a career spanning set, from the former The Commotions frontman to his current day solo work.
