Spiritualized return to Australia in December for a run of East Coast shows that will see J Spaceman and co. headlining the Meredith Music Festival and returning to the Sydney Opera House.
The band was last in Australia in 2011 for the Opera House’s Vivid LIVE festival playing their iconic 1997 album Ladies And Gentlemen We Are Floating In Space in full delivering a performance that, according to FL’s review, “exceeded expectations and delivered both sonically and emotionally at an iconic venue”.
Following the release of one of the finest records of 2012 Sweet Heart, Sweet Light the band returns in December. As FL’s review of the album noted: “Jason Pierce certainly has a strong vision for his music, whether it be the electric psych drones of Spaceman 3 or the more baroque, narcotic sprawl of Spiritualized. He has a template and he adheres to it with such devotion that every release is always an ‘album experience’ with a sonic flow and thematic cohesion. His latest, Sweet Heart, Sweet Light follows the same working habits and finds him trading in the same sounds and style but this time with a touch more optimism pulsing through its eleven tracks.”
