Holy Holy are hitting the road! The Aussie duo have announced a string of shows in support of their forthcoming fourth studio album, Hello My Beautiful World. The announcement comes alongside a brand new track, The Aftergone, featuring sister-duo CLEWS.

Kicking off at Perth's Astor Theatre on November 5, the massive run of shows will continue on to Margaret River, Bunbury, Torquay, Frankston, Melbourne, Canberra, Towradgi, Newcastle, Sydney, Miami, Brisbane, Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville, Cairns, Adelaide and Hobart, before wrapping up in Launceston on December 21. Along for the ride is Hayley Mary and Queen P on select dates, with special appearances by CLEWS.

Speaking of the track, says Oscar Dawson shares:“Working with Kim was fun and I've always loved The Presets. We wanted to push this song into electronic territory, and he was the right person to go to for that. Tim then wrote a pre-chorus melody and lyrics that we felt were perfect for Lily and Grace from CLEWS, a band - and people - we're super fond of. We've toured with them and they've joined us on stage many times before. We’re stoked that they can finally feature on a song with us.”

Of the lyrics, Tim Carroll adds, "The future has been feeling particularly uncertain lately. The world we thought we knew is not there anymore. This song is an acknowledgement of what that feels like. Maybe things are always like that. Maybe every generation has this experience, and this is just our story to live through."

Recorded throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the record sees the musical duo team up with the likes of Japanese Wallpaper, CLEWS, Queen P and The Presets’ Kim Moyes, bringing together some of Australia's most engaging songwriters into one succinct body of work.

“When we work with people from different genres, it’s not that we’re totally different from them. There are heaps of similarities too. Music genres aren’t black-and-white, there isn’t some sort of binary,” Oscar Dawson adds. “It's all about the grey zone where the two of you meet in the middle – you realise that you connect on a certain level, but you also have access to a different perspective. You’re similar enough to be together in the first place; but where you differ is where the light can come through.”

The Aftergone is out August 20. Listen to Believe Anything below.
