The great Australian dance rock band Cut Copy have announced a new album and fall tour. The group’s new album is entitled Haiku From Zero and it’s due out on Sept. 22 via Astralwerks. In July, the band premiered the music video for their new song “Airborne,” watch that in the video embedded above. You can also hear another new song, “Standing in the Middle of The Field” by clicking here.
Cut Copy has also announced a North American tour in support of the new album. The twenty-plus date trek kicks off on Sept. 30 with a performance at the Luna Lights Festival in Darlington, Maryland and wraps up on Dec. 6 in Miami with a show at North Beach Bandshell. Tickets for select dates will go on sale tomorrow, Aug. 11; browse the band’s full tour itinerary below.
Haiku From Zero marks the band’s first album since 2014’s Free Your Mind. In a statement announcing the new album, the band’s frontman Dan Whitford said the record was inspired by our information era.
“So much of this album is about this mosaic of information, images that we’re surrounded by on a day-to-day basis,” Whitford said. “Sometimes it feels like overload, but there’s a weird random beauty in it. The idea of squeezing poetry form chaos was where the title of the album came from—the idea of finding something poetic in the overload.”
