Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce one of the return of alt-J, one of the most successful British bands of the millennium, to New Zealand and Australia this December.

Quietly, resolutely, impressively, singularly, alt-J have become one of the biggest British bands of whatever it is we’re calling the 21st century’s second decade. Art-electro, math-folk, hymnal-rock, call it what you will, the music made by alt-J is the muscular sound of cutting edge innovation pumped by a melodically bleeding heart.

alt-J’s highly anticipated third album Relaxer will be released next Friday 2 June (via Liberator Music/Infectious Music/BMG) on CD, heavyweight vinyl and digitally. Ahead of its release, ‘3WW’ as well as ‘In Cold Blood’ have both been made available to fans, and today, alt-J have released ‘Adeline’ as a further taste of what’s to come on Relaxer . 

Three years of worldwide touring have forged alt-J’s reputation as a fierce live act. alt-J have headlined festivals across the globe, and on their last international tour, alt-J sold out the London’s iconic O2 Arena and New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden.

alt-J will return to New Zealand and Australia this December following shows throughout Europe and the United States
