King Krule (2018)

UK

It can today be announced that London’s KING KRULE, aka Archy Marshall, will play headline East Coast dates on his return Australian visit in March. In addition to an already announced appearance at Golden Plains festival, Marshall will take in Sydney’s Metro Theatre on Monday 5 March, Brisbane’s The Triffid on Tuesday 6 March and Melbourne’s The Croxton Bandroom on Thursday 8 March.

***Due to demand, the King Krule concert on Mon 5 Mar has been moved to the Enmore Theatre. All Metro Theatre tickets remain valid for the Enmore Theatre show, and will allow access to the General Admission Dance Floor area. Current ticket holders simply present their original Metro Theatre tickets to gain entry to the Enmore Theatre. No ticket exchange is required.

Since his last Australian visit in 2014, during which he played the national St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival, Marshall has released acclaimed music under a range of different monikers, including Hypnodisc, Edgar the Beatmaker and his own name Archy Marshall, and recently launched a new capsule fashion collection in collaboration with Babylon LA.

Marshall blurred the boundaries of music and art with his 2015 release, A New Place 2 Drown, which was accompanied by a book of his poetry and artwork, along with a short film directed by Will Robson - Scott.

Released in October, the sophomore album from King Krule, The OOZ, is “the richest and most immersive album the London singer-songwriter has made yet… a masterpiece of jaundiced vision from one of the most compelling artists alive.” – Pitchfork

It’s a dense, sprawling offering, drifting and seeping through the cracks of South London. Across 19 tracks, Marshall casts an unflinching eye over his kingdom, transforming his observations of all the disorientation and heartbreak of his youth into piercing narratives and poetry that are both startlingly honest and brutally beautiful. With The OOZ, Marshall finally takes the crown as poet laureate for the dazed and confused generation, painting a bleak and sometimes harrowing picture of a rapidly splintering city.
