THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+
Los Angeles-based artist Wallice
has announced her first-ever headline tour of Australia, following her successful run as direct support for The 1975's ‘At Their Very Best’ tour across Australia, New Zealand and Asia. Presented by Secret Sounds, the tour will kick off on Friday 13th October at The Brightside in Brisbane, followed by a show at Northcote Social Club in Melbourne on Saturday 14th October. In addition, Wallice has been announced as one of the performers for the inaugural SXSW Sydney festival, showcasing on Wednesday 18th October.
This tour comes in support of Wallice's
forthcoming EP, Mr Big Shot
, set for release on Friday June 23rd via Dirty Hit. The EP's lead single, Best Friend
, is already making waves, with its striking music video directed by Anthony Pham and John Merizalde, known for their work with the likes of Harry Styles, Ariana Grande, and Depeche Mode. Best Friend
first new music of 2023, carrying on from where she left off with her previous single Japan
, Best Friend
sees her continue to showcase her more reflective and sentimental side, touching on the sometimes nostalgic, sometimes frustrating memories of lost relationships. Wallice
comments; “A recurrent theme in my music has been friendship. I think this song can easily relate to both friendship and the friendship within a romantic relationship. I’ve had a couple falling outs with various friends throughout my life, I think it’s just part of life and growing up. Even though that friendship might not serve you anymore it’s still so easy to reminisce on it and miss it.”
In addition to her successful run supporting The 1975, which saw her playing to over 79,000 fans across Australia and New Zealand, Wallice's
breakout 2022 saw her sign to Dirty Hit for the release of her second EP, 90s American Superstar, which charts the rise and fall of a fictional celebrity across five cutting, tongue-in-cheek tracks. Wallice
has toured extensively throughout the US, supporting the likes of Beabadoobee, Still Woozy, Chloe Moriondo, and Wallows, and has found champions in the likes of Vogue, New York Times, The FADER, BBC Radio 1, Steve Lamacq, Zane Lowe, and NME, among others.
