Belle and Sebastian announce Australian tour

Scottish Indie favourites Belle & Sebastian return to Australia in May next year for the first time since their massively successful tour in 2015.

With their latest single I’ll Be Your Pilot signalling a fresh new wave of activity for the band, the Australian shows wrap up a global tour, with performances confirmed for The Sydney Opera House, Melbourne’s Palais Theatre, Perth’s Astor Theatre and The Tivoli in Brisbane.

Twenty years ago the band released three EPs in quick succession. Dog On Wheels, Lazy Line Painter Jane and 3.. 6.. 9 Seconds Of Light have always been fan favourites.

Now to celebrate that anniversary the twee-pop superstars have announced the release of three more EPs in quick succession this December.

All three of the new EPs share the title How To Solve Our Human Problems. The first EP will be released on December 8, the second on January 19, and the final installment landing on February 16, just ahead of their tour down under.


Since forming in 1996 Belle & Sebastian have released nine studio albums. There most recent work was 2015’s Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance,which saw a change in musical direction for the band and they embraced a more electronic sound.

The band arrive in Perth on May 2 where they’ll play a show at The Astor Theatre, before heading east for shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
