Psychedelic rocker Tame Impala have just dropped a single and some 2022 tour dates, plus there’s a box set headed our way.
Kevin Parker and crew will play a handful of North American dates starting in the spring. The tour kicks off in Pittsburgh and will wrap up in Nashville, then head to Europe and back home to Australia. There are some festival dates thrown in, tickets are now on sale.
The tour announcement also included the new song, “No Choice,” which will appear on the upcoming deluxe box set of “The Slow Rush.” The set will be released February 18th and features B-sides and remixes of songs on the original disc, including “Patience” and “The Boat I Row.”
Tame Impala is the project of Kevin Parker who writes, records, and performs all the material. While touring, he will bring along Dominic Simper (guitar, synthesizer), Jay Watson (synthesizer, guitar), Cam Avery (bass), and Julien Barbagallo (drums).
The Grammy-nominated artist started to get mainstream attention in the US with “Feels Like We Only Go Backwards” and “Elephant” off the album “Lonerism” in 2012. It was followed up with 2015’s “Currents,” home to “Let It Happen, “Eventually,” and “Cause I’m a Man,” was their first Grammy nom.
Tame Impala released “The Slow Rush” in 2020, right before the pandemic. It once again brought the band Grammy noms and chart appearances courtesy of songs “It Might Be Time,” “Borderline,” and “Posthumous Forgiveness.”
Called more upbeat than previous records, “The Slow Rush” has a disco vibe combined with the music styles of multiple generations. The deluxe edition promises multiple remixes of tracks off the original album.
Tame Impala may very well take over the planet next year, so get your tickets so you can be part of the domination.
