About

Something For Kate, one of Australia’s most influential bands, will head out on their first national headline tour in four years this coming September/October – the Echolalia x The Modern Medieval tour.

For one night only in each city, Paul Dempsey, Stephanie Ashworth and Clint Hyndman 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.

With their masterful musical architecture, Something For Kate have earned 750,000+ Gold and Platinum sales across seven albums, amassed 11 x ARIA nominations and 14 x entries in triple J’s Hottest 100. The quintessential songs are there: ‘Déjà Vu’, ‘Monsters’, ‘Electricity’, ‘Cigarettes and Suitcases’, ‘Captain (Million Miles An Hour)’, ‘Survival Expert’, ‘Three Dimensions’, ‘Come Back Before I Come Back To My Senses’ + many more.

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”.

For one night only in each city, don’t miss Something For Kate performing Echolalia x The Modern Medieval’ this Sept/Oct!
