Tour: Gruff Rhys to play Sydney and Melbourne shows

Gruff RhysSuper Furry Animals frontman Gruff Rhys will be visiting Australia in May to perform two special solo shows in Sydney and Melbourne, in support of his new album ‘Hotel Shampoo’.

Stepping on from Super Furry Animals, Gruff has been become a formidable solo artist and collaborator over the past few years, producing his own solo work, plus contributing to albums from Gorillaz, Danger Mouse & Sparklehorse, Simian Mobile Disco and The Bottle Top Band, as well as fronting the Mercury nominated band, Neon Neon, with Boom Bip.

‘Hotel Shampoo’ is his third solo album, and it’s a delectable romp of energetic pop charm that’s a little offkilter, a little psychedelic, a little retro, a little futuristic and never dull. From cinematic pop on “Shark Ridden Waters” (produced by Andy Votel) to awesome mariachi tinged first single “Sensations In The Dark”, Gruff shows off plenty of (un)seriously great tunes. This will be Gruff’s first visit to Australia since Super Furry Animals toured in 2003.
