TOURING: First Aid Kit Announce Their Return To Australia
After a sellout-year, Swedish sisters FIRST AID KIT are set to make a return to Melbourne and Sydney stages. The group’s third Australian tour in January will see them gracing the stage of The Sydney Opera House’s Concert Hall and The Forum in Melbourne. The duo are also set to play Falls music festival.
Since their January release The Lion’s Roar(Wichita / [PIAS]), the duo have been taking the world by storm, capturing the hearts of thousands and dazzling audiences with their harmonies.
The group has received praised by the likes of Jack White and Patti Smith. Not only has the group been praised by some of their idols but they were also lucky enough to perform a cover of ‘America’ to a standing ovation lead by Paul Simon at the Polar Prize ceremony. The Sydney Morning Herald noted of their recent visit, “First Aid Kit’s musical kit bag is surprisingly expansive and outgoing.”
The album was recently re-packaged as a strictly limited edition box set, with a heap of bonus material including the groups latest single ‘Wolf’, a tour documentary, single videos, a 20 page booklet and a guitar pick.
