Tame Impala rounded out a hectic couple of months by announcing their biggest tour to date on Wednesday.

The alternative rock outfit is quickly growing in stature after a very successful year and their tour announcement comes on the back of their internationally successful sophomore album Lonerism.   

The group will embark on a national tour in April and May in addition to headlining the Groovin’ the Moo festival alongside the likes of The Bronx, Tegan & Sara and the Kooks. The tour will include stops in Melbourne, Sydney Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth.

Lonerism, which received international acclaim, was recorded in their tree house studio overlooking the ocean in hometown Perth, Western Australia. The album reached gold status sales in Australia, debuting at No.4 on the Aussie album charts, while reaching No.14 in the UK (eventually winning the NME record of the year) and No.34 on Billboard‘s Top 200 Album Chart. The album’s success led to a North American national tour which sold out gigs across the country.
