The Clouds Aus Tour with special guests Falling Joys - ACT

Event Description

Following the recent resurgence in interest for Clouds’ music and the great success touring nationally as support to Blondie and Cyndi Lauper earlier this year, the Clouds will fulfil their promise to fans by doing a headline tour to all major Australian cities this November. They’re bringing new music to their setlist too.

After launching their EP Zaffre in February this year, with Mabel’s Bookshop being officially released, they’ve been busy writing and recording new music. The tour will be named after their new single, Beautiful Nothingness, due out in late October.

The Clouds have been in the public eye recently, with Jodi and Trish hosting Double J’s Artist in Residence for the month of July, which featured 3 live in studio versions of The Clouds’ hits; Say It, 4pm and House of the Sun. The first two were shared as videos on Double J’s social media and generated a lot of interest and new followers. This came hot on the heels of several Clouds songs appearing on Double J’s 90s best of lists, along with features of The Clouds and their female guitar playing harmonic frontwomen, Jodi Phillis and Trish Young as Australian female rock icons. The Clouds were also guest programmers on rage in June and Jodi and Trish featured at Sydney Writer’s Festival in May this year.

In a perfect pairing, The Clouds will be joined on the road by best friends, the Falling Joys. Old touring partners from the 90s, the Joys and The Clouds did many a lap of the country together and created many memories for audiences and fans. Through this exclusive tour arrangement, it will be the first tour the Falling Joys have undertaken in 20 years and will feature the classic Joys’ line up of Suzie Higgie (Gtr/Vox), Stuart G Robertson (Gtr), Pat Hayes (Bass/Vox) and Peter Velzen (Drums/Vox).

The national tour will take The Clouds and the Falling Joys to capital cities in Queensland, NSW, ACT, Victoria and WA. Venues will have limited capacity, and the tour dates are tight, so fans are urged to secure tickets ASAP. The Clouds line up is Jodi Phillis (Gtr/Vox), Trish Young (Bass/Vox), Dave Easton (Gtr) and Raph Whittingham (Drums). The band will be performing new music on the tour, along with all the classic hits such as Hieronymus, Say It, Boy of Air, Bower of Bliss and their version of Wichita Lineman.
