AEG Live is excited to announce TAME IMPALA with MAC DeMARCO live at Red Rocks Amphitheatre Wednesday, August 31, 2016!
Tame Impala received their second career GRAMMY nomination for ‘Best Alternative Album’ for their wildly inventive, genre-breaking album Currents. Currents received near unanimous critical acclaim and has been included in 2015 Best Of lists by Pitchfork, Stereogum, Consequence of Sound, Spin, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly and more. Consequence of Sound also named them “Band of the Year.” The band is pleased to announce they will now return to the U.S. for shows this summer.
U.S. stops include two nights in Brooklyn at the Prospect Park Bandshell for BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival in June, Red Rocks in Colorado in August and The Greek Theatre in Berkeley in September to name a few. Tickets will go on sale January 15 with more shows and festival stops to be announced in the coming weeks.
Currents was written, recorded, produced and mixed by Kevin Parker in Fremantle, West Australia. Lyrically the record finds Parker in a very different place in 2015 to where he was seven years ago. Transitions in life, relationships, perspectives, mindsets – Currents maps Parker’s evolution through these and finds him a brand new person.
“[I]t’s the result of a supernaturally talented obsessive trying to perfect music while redefining their relationship to album-oriented rock… Nearly every proper song on Currents is a revelatory statement of Parker’s range and increasing expertise as a producer, arranger, songwriter, and vocalist while maintaining the essence of Tame Impala: Parker is just as irreverent working in soul and R&B as he is with psych-rock.” – Pitchfork (Best New Music)
“[Parker] advocates for constant reinvention… That commitment to evolution helps make Tame Impala an unlikely but worthy candidate for major stardom.” – NPR
“[A] near-perfect album… [Parker’s] been called a visionary for years, but this is the ultimate proof he can see for miles and miles.” – Paste
“Currents just might be the best thing Parker’s released yet… Parker’s music is in perpetual bloom.” – Stereogum
“[A]n ethereal, insinuating vibe that feels like dropping in on an all-night rave.” – Grantland
“From the crisp, hip-hop accenting on the drums to the full-bodied bass and vivid synths, ‘Currents’ is an audiophile’s wet dream.” – NME
“‘Currents’ is a tour de force for [Parker] and his gizmos.” – New York Times
“[O]n Currents Parker showcases a knack for shaping intelligent pop songs.” – Billboard
