Winning widespread critical acclaim from music publications, and also winning the hearts of music lovers the world over, Tame Impala’s most recent album Lonerism was released in late 2012 and has gone on to sell in excess of 172,000 copies in the United States, and was nominated for Best Alternative Album at the 56th Annual GRAMMYAwards. Tame Impala first toured the U.S. in2010, playing small clubs for crowds of 200. A handful of trips to the U.S. later and thanks to the ravenous demand of fans for the band’s transcendent live performance, Tame Impala will return to the U.S. for major headlining shows scheduled in New York City, Los Angeles, CA, Las Vegas, NV and Oakland, CA. Delicate Steve will support all shows. Tickets go on sale at 10AM on Friday, August 22nd via Ticketmaster.com except for Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas, which is available via Ticketfly.com
Last month, Tame Impala released Live Versions, an album of songs selected from a Chicago Tame Impala concert. Chief songwriter Kevin Parker chose the 9 tracks for the record based on how different the live versions are from the album versions. Parker’s goal was to give fans something they won’t already have; something they’ve only previously experienced at a Tame Impala show. Songs from this show were recorded by, and broadcast on WXRT. Live Versions was originally released on vinyl only as a limited release in celebration of 2014’s Record Store Day and was the highest selling Record Store Day 2014 release.
Prior to Live Versions Tame Impala have released a self-titeld EP and two full length albums-Innerspeaker and their recent, Lonerism. Lonerism features the hits ‘Elephant’ and ‘Feels Like We Only Go Backwards.’ The album reached the #1 spot on the CMJ chart and received wide commercial alternative airplay as well.
