From late September to mid November Urthboy embarks on his biggest tour to date, teaming up with wonderkids Horrorshow to launch their brand new records at over 25 dates nationwide.
Urthboy’s hotly anticipated third album Spitshine (hitting shelves August 28) has already generated a huge buzz: most downloaded song on Triple j in 2009; soldout single launches; rotation on radio and TV. The video for current single Ready to Go is an LED light inspired slice of adrenalin hip hop. The energetic and theatrical live show involves Elgusto (Hermitude) and Jane Tyrrell.
Horrorshow have experienced a rapid but organic rise in 12 short months, with their invigorating debut The Grey Space capturing a national following. Their second album, Inside Story, is set to dramatically swell their fanbase when it drops on Oct 2. Opening the Spitshine Tour is Melbourne’s Polo Club (Triple j Unearthed/MTV Kickstart winners).
Tickets on Sale: Thursday 30th July
