ARIA-Award-winning and multi-platinum artist, Ruel is hitting the road! The musician has announced his 4TH WALL world tour, in support of his hotly-anticipated debut album, 4TH WALL.

Kicking off at Fortitude Music Hall in Brisbane on April 14, the run of shows will continue on to Adelaide's Hindley Street Music Hall, Melbourne's MCA, Perth's Fremantle Arts Centre and Aware Super Theatre in Sydney. The musician will then head to New Zealand for performances in Auckland and Wellington.

"SOOOO SO excited to tour AU/NZ again, playing at home is the best feeling ever, the crowds are always so energising and the vibe in the room is unmatched. It’s going to be so much fun to finally play the record live and share it with everyone in real time. These shows are always so special and I cannot WAIT to see everyone again." Ruel shares.

Last month, the musician unveiled a new taste of the record with MUST BE NICE. Opening with delicate piano melodies, Ruel's mesmerising vocals unfurl above as he documents the lingering emotions of a breakup and the inability to move on whilst your former partner has a new life. The ballad shows a more a intimate side to the musician, with vulnerable falsetto vocals soaring into a raw and emotional performance.

MUST BE NICE is the first time I’ve ever released a ballad as a single, and it would have to be one of my favourite tracks on the record. Lyrically it's such an easy song to grasp, essentially it’s just about a break up. But I wanted to take a step back and try and give it a new perspective. All break ups are difficult in their own way, but when you see the other person getting on with their life, it hits so much harder. I feel like the lyric ‘fuck, it must be nice’ captures that perfectly.” Ruel shares of the track.

Having made his debut in 2017 with Golden Years, Ruel has amassed over 2 billion global streams across his catalogue, which includes three EP's and a string of singles. The musician has sold-out three world tours, collaborated with the likes of Denzel Curry, Cosmo’s Midnight and Omar Apollo, and took home the ARIA Award for Breakthrough Artist in 2018 - where he remains the youngest artist ever to do so. Last year, Ruel offered glimpses into 4TH WALL with the release of GROWING UP IS_____, YOU AGAINST YOURSELF and SOMEONE ELSE’S PROBLEM.
