The Internet add second and final sideshows for Sydney & Melbourne

Due to overwhelming demand, LA-based collective The Internet today adds second and final Melbourne and Sydney shows to their upcoming Australian tour, with the first Melbourne show selling out almost immediately. The six-piece will hit Splendour in the Grass, followed by headline shows at Melbourne’s 170 Russell on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th July, and Sydney’s Metro Theatre on Friday 29th and Saturday 30th July. Tickets for the second Melbourne and Sydney shows are on sale now.

Fronted by the seductive Syd tha Kyd, The Internet blends smooth soul and funk, with chugging drums and slinking bass lines. The band’s third album, Ego Death, was released in July last year and features guest appearances from the likes of Janelle Monae, Vic Mensa and Tyler, the Creator, earning the neo-soul outfit a Grammy nomination for Best Contemporary R&B Album. Watch the video for ‘Special Affair/Curse’ featuring Tyler, the Creator and friends here.

The Internet will arrive in Australia for anticipated headline shows, fresh from playing some of the world’s premier music festivals, from Bonnaroo to Fuji Rock Festival and more. Don’t miss the captivating on-stage energy from LA’s finest collective when they return this July.

“Ego Death is both spare and quietly musical, its crisp low end anchored in hip-hop as the rest of the band coolly branches out into jazz, funk and rock” – Pitchfork

“They explore sonic space, allowing for exciting pivots and an industrious live show that’s as adventurous as their sound” - LA Weekly
