Fabulous Diamonds Tour Update


“Fabulous Diamonds showed they can match the intensity of their recorded work” – album launch review, Inpress

“Often accused of pretension, you wouldn’t find two more frank and realistic people who, although utterly incompatible, are entirely well-matched” – West Australian

Fabulous Diamonds’ launch tour for compelling new album Fabulous Diamonds II is well and truly underway, with warmly-received Melbourne and Sydney shows already under their belt.

The Perth show is coming up this weekend, but there are slight changes further ahead – the Hobart date has been moved to September, and crazy Chapter Music freakazoids Bum Creek have been added to the Adelaide bill. Fabulous Diamonds have also been announced as one of the acts at Frankly, Brisbane Festival’s one day mini music fest, alongside the likes of Xiu Xiu, High Places and Crayon Fields. See all the details below!

Recorded by Eddy Current Suppression Ring’s Mikey Young, Fabulous Diamonds II is one of the year’s most intriguing albums, and their live shows take transcendental grumpy hypno-pop to a whole new level!!
