Akron/Family To Bring ‘Shinju TNT’ To Aus

Akron/Family will bring the rainbow psych-rock of their recent ‘ST II: The Cosmic Birth & Rebirth of Shinju TNT’ to Aus this year, with Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne & Perth dates today confirmed for September/October. The band’s much loved 2009 debut tour of Aus revealed a show of great contrasts – with rich rock improvisation and delicate instrumentation at its borders. Unhinged, wild and super beautiful, this three piece bounce from psychadelia to tribal chants and almost-jazz-breakdowns. Set against the driving songs of ‘Shunju TNT’, we are so excited to get this show down here! Tix to Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art show are now on sale. All others are on sale next Mon 18, via venues.
