On the heels of their powerhouse “Ringtone” (Remix) collaboration with Charli XCX, Rico Nasty, and Kero Kero Bonito, 100 gecs (Chicago-based producer-songwriter Laura Les and Los Angeles-based producer-songwriter Dylan Brady)are announcing a headlining world tour.
Named after their forthcoming album 1000 gecs & The Tree of Clues, the Australian leg of the tour will kick off with a show at Brisbane’s Woolly Mammoth on June 18th, before heading over to Melbourne’s Howler on June 21st and wrapping things up in Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory on June 23rd. The promoter pre-sale begins Thursday, March 5th and general on-sale begins Friday, March 6th.
The tour announcement follows 100 gecs’ North American run with BROCKHAMPTON and slowthai last year, and somehow simultaneously took part in their own “Secret Tour” which saw the duo headline seven sold-out one-off shows, with dates in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Berkeley, Portland, Santa Ana, and St. Louis.
It also arrives ahead of their aforementioned album 1000 gecs & The Tree of Clues. Taken from and inspired by their critically-acclaimed debut 1000 gecs released via Brady’s own label Dog Show Records, the album took shape as the result of crowd-sourcing, including official remixes from friends and familiar names, as well as fans who received stems for the album via the band’s Twitter.

“Any lost sense of community crumbles in the mosh pit, which spans the entire room” – The Washington Post
