Hot off the heels of their recently released EP (our review here), Hands Like Houses are now gearing up to play a set of special shows next January across NSW, QLD and their hometown of Canberra. Called the Reflect tour, these shows will see the band play in a COVID-safe setting as the world begins to settle into this new norm. Vocalist Trenton Woodley shares:
“The ‘Reflect’ Tour is a chance to slow down, take a breath and reflect on the challenges this year has presented, using that experience to inform a new take on the music it’s produced, the opportunities it’s given and the things that we’ve missed the most. These COVID-safe shows are our first real opportunity to return to live music in a way that doesn’t reject the ‘new normal’ but embraces it wholly, with a reimagined set and a uniquely intimate HLH experience.”
Supporting the tour will be Sydney breakout act Agnes Manners, who just dropped a killer debut release earlier this year called Fantasia Famish (our review here) and who we’re predicting to be doing some big things for music over the coming months. This tour will be one of the very first opportunities to witness Agnes Manners live—I’m sure it’ll be a very special moment to witness too.
These shows will absolutely be a great opportunity to connect with live music once again, as well as supporting the economy and with stops like Wollongong, Byron Bay and the Sunshine Coast on the tour routing, it’s also a fucking rad excuse to grab your mates, jump in the car and head out on a roadtrip for the weekend. Did I mention the shows are around Australia Day too?
Tickets on sale on Thursday November 19 at 9am AEDT here, with the fan pre-sale on now.
