Boundary-pushing Canadian electro artist Peaches is coming to Australia.
The transgressive singer, whose real name is Merrill Nisker, has announced a string of Australian club sideshows along the east coast and Perth in May to complement her regional performances at the Groovin The Moo Festival.
Peaches will play the Hi-Fi in Brisbane on May 6, giving Australian fans an early preview of the new material from her forthcoming album RUB, her first since 2009’s I Feel Cream.
She’s also readying the release of a photo book titled What Else Is In The Teaches of Peaches in June. The tome will feature an intimate look at her life and her performance art through photos, with high-profile Peaches superfans Ellen Page, Yoko Ono and REM’s Michael Stipe providing written contributions.
Groovin The Moo festival finishes in Townsville on May 10 after shows in regional venues across the country. Joining Peaches on the lineup are Charli XCX, Tkay Maidza, San Cisco, Ball Park Music, A$AP Ferg, Hilltop Hoods and more.
