alt-J’s highly anticipated third album Relaxer will be released on Friday 2 June (via Liberator Music/Infectious Music/BMG) on CD, heavyweight vinyl and digitally.
Ahead of the 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.
The release of Relaxer follows alt-J’s Grammy and Brit Award-nominated This Is All Yours, which debuted at #2 in Australia and #1 in the UK. Their debut An Awesome Wave won the 2012 Mercury Prize and an Ivor Novello Award. Between them, the two albums have sold in excess of two million copies worldwide and their songs have been streamed well over one billion times.
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 sold out London’s iconic O2 Arena and New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden.
Los Angeles quartet Warpaint will make their return to Australia to support alt-J. Warpaint’s studio albums emphasise moody atmospheres, with gauzy keyboards, hypnotic harmonies, and sinister grooves. In concert, they pair this moodiness with bumped-up tempos and sinewy beats. Their live performances dazzle, and their shows are met with much delight from fans and critics alike.
alt-J will return to Australia and New Zealand this December following shows throughout Europe and the United States.
