Gig & Concert News - Lawrence Arabia announces 'Chant Darling' tour and vinyl reissue

Lawrence Arabia announces 'Chant Darling' tour and vinyl reissue

10 June 2021 - 0 Comments

Believed by the artist to be 'the latest and best of a recent plague of anniversary vinyl re-release tours' Lawrence Arabia has decided to 'do' Chant Darling live, celebrating the 12 & 1/2 year gap since the release of the first ever Taite Music Prize winning album, and a whole eighth of a century in the market.

This September, Lawrence Arabia and full band go all out on the road with a long awaited vinyl release, and a flurry of shows featuring the album played in full, alongside a selection of Lawrence's deepest cuts, and biggest bangers.

Fuzz-pop three-piece Na Noise, recent winners of the Auckland Live Best Independent Debut, will be the very special guests for the duration of the tour.

Since the release of his first album in 2006, Lawrence Arabia (aka James Milne) has become one of the pre-eminent figures of Aotearoa’s musical landscape, releasing five critically acclaimed and garlanded solo albums alongside a variety of diverse collaborative work.

His breakthrough second record, Chant Darling, released worldwide in 2009/10 on Bella Union, snared the inaugural Taite Music Prize in early 2010, and featured the smash hit Apple Pie Bed, which won the APRA Silver Scroll, New Zealand’s top songwriting award. Throughout 2009/10, Lawrence and his band performed almost 100 shows in Europe and North America in support of Chant Darling, including tours and performances with Beach House, Cate Le Bon, Flight Of The Conchords and Crowded House, sessions for BBC Radio 2, 4 and 6Music, an NPR Tiny Desk Concert and a KCRW Morning Becomes Eclectic session.

Tickets are on sale via Banished Music on Monday 14th June at 9am
