Laneway Presents Mini Mansions
Mini Mansions have announced headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney.
The indie pop trio led by Queens Of The Stone Age bassist Michael Shuman will be touring Australia in November with Tame Impala. Headline shows have been announced at Ding Dong Lounge in Melbourne on Nov 8th and Goodgod Small Club in Sydney on Thursday Nov 12th.
Mini Mansions are in the midst of a victorious year. Following their break out performance at SXSW, the band have toured with the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Royal Blood and New Pornographers and made their Glastonbury debut this June, which NME called “as elegant as the clothes on their backs.”
Mini Mansions have steadily built a buzz this year following incredible reviews for their new album The Great Pretenders released earlier this year via Caroline Australia.
The album features triple j favourite ‘Vertigo’. Watch Here
The Great Pretenders is probably the only record you’ll hear this year that features both Brian Wilson (on ‘Any Emotions’) and Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner (on ‘Vertigo’) as guests.
To coincide with the tour announcement the band recently premiered the new video for Mirror Mountain, starring LA legend Angelyne - and her pink Corvette Stingray. Watch Here
Tickets for the shows will go on sale this Wednesday from 10am (Oct 7).
“The Great Pretenders is an emotional, emboldened triumph.” NME (9/10)
“The Great Pretenders is an immediate and well-crafted psychedelic pop record that draws heavily on the late ‘60s work of Syd Barrett, The Beach Boys and The Beatles.” Fasterlouder
“2015 belongs to Mini Mansions.” DIY Magazine
