Spiritualized Space-Rocking Their Way Through Australia
Spiritualized, a space-rock band based out of England, have announced an Australian tour. With only four dates scheduled, the tour will begin on December 2 and finish on December 7. The first gig takes place in Sydney at the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall, then Brisbane on the 4th and Melbourne on the 6th. The tour wraps up on December 7 at the Meredith Music Festival, where you can also catch Primal Scream, Four Tet, Turbonegro and Grimes performing.
Spiritualized will be touring in support of their seventh album, Sweet Heart Sweet Light, a record that has been compared to their arguably most popular and successful ’97 release, Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space. Recording Sweet Heart Sweet Light was no easy task: The album took two years to make, with frontman Jason Pierce undergoing experimental chemotherapy for a liver disease through the duration. Not to mention the thing took a year to mix. When it was finally released in April of 2012, it peaked at number 19 on the UK Billboard chart and number 60 on the US Billboard chart – a first for the UK band.
