Dirty Three Announce Third And Final Melbourne Show

Dirty Three Announce Third And Final Melbourne Show

Dirty Three are back and selling out, today announcing a third and final Melbourne show to share their rumbling, widescreen tour at The Forum on Sunday, 16th June. 

General on-sale for this cacophony of noise begins today at 2pm AEST.

This news comes on the heels of the announcement of a new album Love Changes Everything which arrives physically on Friday, 14th June and digitally on Friday, 28th June, andexpands on their signature, gritty instrumentals that pull you in like oil-painted landscapes.

The new album comes alongside a national tour with the ARIA award winning trio spreading the noise across the mountains and to the coast. Five years since their last visit, and 12 long years since their last national tour, the group will take in Melbourne’s RISING festivalSydney, Canberra, Thirroul, Fremantle, Adelaide, Hobart, Brisbane and Byron Bay to their manifest, bringing the same cathartic, sometimes violent and always spellbinding brand of music that they’ve brought to stages with Sonic Youth, Beastie Boys, Pavement, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, John Cale, Cat Power, PJ Harvey, The Pogues, and Cat Power. With many dates sold out or selling fast this fresh new tour certainly feels like those of the past.

Of the announcement Warren Ellis shares “What joy to kick off the tour for our new album Love Changes Everything in Melbourne Australia for the RISING Festival. Recorded in 5 days. Mixed in a year. Nothing has changed. Older and meaner, sadder and totally dangerous. Dirty Three are Thirty Two years old. Come blow out the candles and help us stick a knife in the cake.”

The Dirty Three– Warren Ellis, Mick Turner and Jim White – formed in Melbourne in 1992, to play with guitar drums and violin or viola, and within a couple years, they’d broken out – out of Australia, out of anything else they might have been inside of, and got worldwide. Over the next ten years, they toured over and over the planet, ceaseless like, and cut seven albums out along the way. After this, their unique style of play, fitted together like puzzle pieces, was decoupled, more often than not, and pieced together in many other, fruitful collaborations with many other esteemed talents. Over the past 20 years, they’ve gotten together a few times, renewed the vow, revved the engines and played some shows, or made an album. Like now.

For their first album in over a decade – yep, it’s been ten years since 2012’s Toward the Low Sun – they flew in, got together and started playing. End of story. What else is there to say or do but that? Music’s their language, their true love; they never stop listening to that. And like the title says, Love Changes Everything

The sounds of Dirty Three getting up to speed again include piano-plucked melodies ringing sweetly out over an undulating landscape flowing with guitar, drums, violin or viola, and synths, sudden descent from tumult of flights and heights into deep canyons of heart-struck adagio. And when received, and committed to “tape”, or whatever they used, this music has been untethered from its streams of consciousness and reconsidered as a recording; brought to bear through edits, overdubs and mixes, resequenced and made suite-like. Made into this album.

These lot were born to be as weathered as they are today. Time doesn’t matter. They make their gathered wisdom of the ages sing like something new every time. It renews. And Love Changes Everything.

Dirty Three, ahoy!

Praise for Dirty Three

“Dirty Three are my favourite live band. No contest … I think it’s because they don’t have a singer … There are three musicians working together, one no less important than the other and well, you can get lost in all that. Their music washes over you and you’re away … When I watch them, they ignite something….They’re utterly unique and absolutely world class.” – Nick Cave

“Every time I see the Dirty Three, they make me cry.” – Cat Power

“I remember when I first heard Dirty Three, they were like nothing else around; an instrumental band with a violinist who played like Hendrix, and epic songs that tore at the very fibre of your being.” – Zan Rowe

“Their songs, you know, maybe saved someone’s life. They’re one of the world’s greatest living bands without a shadow of a doubt … it speaks straight to your heart.”  – Jen Cloher

“It’s impossible to find flaw with the performance, though its x factor is something collectively felt. A kind of accruing, song by fiery song, of irrefutable proof as to how truly great this band is.” – The Guardian

“For two hours, Dirty Three were the greatest band on any planet in any universe.” – FBi Radio

Dirty Three –  Loves Changes Everything is out 14th June via Anchor & Hope / Remote Control Records.
