ROLLING BLACKOUTS COASTAL FEVER
'As engaging live as on record, Rolling Blackouts CF might be just the band to fall in love with' - The Guardian
'Delightfully assured and beautifully executed' - Dork
'An adrenalized, infectious brand of motorik jangle rock' - Pitchfork
After a landmark 12 months for Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, who released their debut album Hope Downs to worldwide critical acclaim ("The possible indie rock album of the year" - The Guardian // "Hope Downs shows how jangling indie should be done" - Q) in June 2018, Sub Pop Records (Nirvana // Father John Misty // Fleet Foxes) are excited to reveal new music from the Melbourne band in the form of single, ‘In The Capital’. The track (which is now live on all digital platforms) will also feature on a limited edition 7-inch alongside a second A-side single, titled ‘Read My Mind’.
To say 2018 was a big year for Rolling Blackouts C.F. is an understatement. The release of the band’s lauded debut album Hope Downs – which featured singles ‘Mainland’, ‘Talking Straight’, ‘An Air Conditioned Man’, ‘Time In Common’ & ‘Sister’s Jeans’ – was embraced by lovers of their early EPs, Talk Tight and The French Press, and new fans alike. The record quickly became one of the most acclaimed albums of the year, appearing in many sought after Best of 2018 lists, coming in at #5 on Rough Trade’s Albums of the Year list, #3 on MOJO’s Album of the Year List (+ was named MOJO’s Debut Album of the Year), #2 on UNCUT’s Albums of the Year & many more. The band kicked off 2019 by being shortlisted for the prestigious AMP Award (Australia's equivalent of the Mercury Prize). Rolling Blackouts C.F. also enjoyed tremendous support from the likes of BBC 6Music, Pitchfork, The Guardian, Paste Magazine, NME, Rolling Stone, triple j, Double j, Stereogum, DIY, Q and countless others.
Meanwhile, the band’s renowned live show led to selling-out their mammoth Hope Downs Australian tour, as well as sold-out performances in London, San Diego, San Francisco, Denver, Chicago, Toronto, Vancouver, Philadelphia, New York City and more. The huge touring schedule also included shows at the world’s biggest music festivals, from Coachella, The Great Escape, Primavera, and Shaky Knees to Lowlands, Pukkelpop, Green Man and Splendour in the Grass.
This will be a MUST-SEE show and we are very excited to be bringing the band to Reading.
Plus support on the night from Special Guests (TBA)...
