Something For Kate have rescheduled their hugely anticipated Echolalia x The Modern Medieval headline tour to March/April 2022.
Mark it in your calendar, friends: Frontier Touring and Village Sounds are pleased to announce acclaimed Melbourne trio Something For Kate have rescheduled their hugely anticipated Echolalia x The Modern Medieval headline tour to March/April 2022.
Originally scheduled for September/October 2021 and postponed due to COVID restrictions and border closures, Something For Kate – Paul Dempsey, Stephanie Ashworth and Clint Hyndman – will now perform their first headline tour in almost five years in early 2022.
SFK will go ‘Double or Nothing’ with the Echolalia x The Modern Medieval tour – performing two special sets per show in our country’s most ornate theatre venues: 2001 hit album Echolalia in full, followed by a 2nd set comprised of tracks from 2020’s acclaimed The Modern Medieval, plus a mix of other favourites.
Released in June 2001, Echolalia is Something For Kate’s iconic Platinum-selling third album. Recorded with producer Trina Shoemaker (QOTSA, Sheryl Crow), it debuted at #2 and saw the band effortlessly execute one of the country’s finest albums, Dempsey conquering a severe bout of writer’s block. Earning 7 x ARIA nominations including Best Album, Best Group, and Channel [V] Artist of the Year, triple j listeners couldn’t get enough. They voted Echolalia ‘Best Album of 2001’, three tracks entering 2001’s Hottest 100 – hit single ‘Monsters’ #2. Voted ‘Album Of The Year’ by The Age, Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph and Rolling Stone’s Best Album, Best Artist and Best Band, Echolalia made the trio a main stage staple on festival stages nationwide.
Nineteen years on, November 2020 saw the band enter the Top 5 yet again with seventh album The Modern Medieval – their first release in eight years. Recorded with Nick DiDia (Powderfinger, Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen) and mixed by Howie Beck (Feist, Chilly Gonzalez), Rolling Stone declared that “Something for Kate have returned with one of their finest albums to date, with The Modern Medieval leaving them feeling like a new band once again.” Australian Guitar meanwhile said the recent offering was their “most ambitious, determined and intriguing body of work yet”.
