Australian singer-songwriter and multi ARIA winning artist Alex Lloyd has announced he will commemorate the 20th anniversary of his 1999 debut masterwork Black The Sun with a national tour.
The tour will feature the album's original line-up, and for the first time ever, the entire double platinum-selling record played in full.
When Alex Lloyd dropped his debut album it was on an unsuspecting public that quickly fell for and embraced the quirky collection of electronica inspired pop gems.
Crafted with producer and Psychedelic Furs member, Ed Buller, Lloyd's exploratory electronics and heartfelt bedsit balladry, included the singles Black The Sun, Lucky Star, Something Special and My Way Home.
On the tour, Lloyd will be joined by Canada's multi-instrumentalist young brothers, Mickaël and Raphaël Fortin collectively known as HEY MAJOR.
"It's hard to believe its been 20 years. A lot has happened in that time, however this album still resonates with me maybe even more so now," Lloyd said. "I am super excited to announce I am getting the band back together to head out on the road again."
Lloyd will play The Dunsborough Hotel on Friday October 18. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Wednesday, July 10 at alexlloyd.com
