Adelaide-born, Melbourne-based artist, rapper and songwriter Allday has announced the support acts for his forthcoming national tour. Along for the ride are Adelaide-native George Alice and Tweed shire's, JK-47
Kicking off in Perth, the tour will see the musician performing tracks from his forthcoming record, Drinking With My Smoking Friends. The musician will take to the stage in Sydney, Adelaide and Melbourne, before wrapping up in Brisbane.
Drinking With My Smoking Friends sees Allday team up with a slew of Aussie talent, ranging from Johnny Took and Matt Mason from DMA's on guitar to Simon Lam of electro outfit KLLO who joined Gaynor and Strum to write on the record. As did singer-songwriter Hayley Mary, Delta Riggs’ Michael Tramonte and Elliott Hammond; and Joji Malani, formerly of Gang of Youths. Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper) co-wrote on several songs, and contributed production and mixing.
Moving away from his usual style, the musician has expanded his musical palette, taking inspiration from The Pixies, The Cure and Oasis to create an alt-rock infused soundscape. Conceptually, the record charts the story of two lovers, a kind of disillusioned Bonnie and Clyde, hellbent on fleeing a dead-end town with stars in their eyes. Covering moments that the musician classifies as “extended youth”, the record came to be after Allday returned from a trip to Los Angeles.
Drinking With My Smoking Friends is out this May! Watch the music video for Void below.
