Tame Impala have announced that they're going to be performing at this year's Reading and Leeds Festival, following on from the latest round of line-up announces on Radio 1 last night.
The indomitable Australian psych band are also playing a couple of warm-up shows in Edinburgh and Dublin the week before Reading. Tame Impala will appear at a slew of European festivals including Primavera, Way Out West and La Route Du Rock over summer, as well playing plenty of headline shows from late June onwards, such as their Hammersmith Apollo show on the 25th June. Full details of all Tame Impala's UK and European live dates are below.
The band released The 'Mind Mischief' single package last week, as lifted from 2012's feted 'Lonerism', all available now on Modular Recordings.
'Mind Mischief' comes in both digital and vinyl forms, and with a couple of choice remixes. As if the original wasn't already sufficiently spaced out, Ducktails sets his phasers to stoned and delivers a lovely laconic take on 'Mind Mischief'. Swedish loop digger The Field meanwhile re-imagines the track as the kind of hypnotic, disorienting 3am chugger that will either make you woozy or all loved up depending on your lust for life, but either way it's a certifiably wonderful trip.
The remixes follow on from the imaginative new video for 'Mind Mischief'. Directed by Colonel Blimp's David Wilson (Passion Pit, Metronomy) featuring both live action and Tame Impala's signature trippy psychedelic animated visuals, the clip shows a schoolboy's fantasy sex romp with one particularly come-hither teacher.
Tame Impala are currently touring America, stopping off for a rousing network tv performance of 'Elephant' on 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon'.
'Lonerism' is out now worldwide on Modular Recordings. Get your copy now via iTunes, Rough Trade, The ModShop, or your favorite local record store.
