Melbourne four-piece, Slowly Slowly may have only just announced their ‘St. Leonards‘ headline tour but, due to insatiable demand, the band have announced the addition of two new shows in Sydney and Brisbane. The announcement follows on from the news that their Melbourne show at the Corner has already sold out.

They have also announced supports for the tour. Details can all be found just below.

The band recently released their single / video ‘Alchemy,‘ lifted from the new album which is set for release on May 11th

As soon as they release the album, they’ll also head off on a run of headline shows around the country.

Following on from previous single ‘Aliens‘, ‘Alchemy‘ – the second taste of ‘St. Leonards‘ – is a feel good, unapologetically happy ode to those times when everything just clicks and you’re, quite literally, “making gold”.

Watch the video for ‘Alchemy‘ below.

On the signing, Slowly Slowly frontman Ben Stewart says:

As soon as we sat down with UNFD we could feel how excited they were about our record. They understood exactly how we wanted the world to see St. Leonards – we are looking forward to both being a part of the UNFD family and also making them a part of our own.

Slowly Slowly’s second album – is a vivid snapshot of the life of Ben Stewart and those closest to him.

Lyrically dense yet restrained instrumentally to allow room for striking imagery and vibrant metaphors, Stewart veers between stream-of-consciousness accounts of futile existence in the city to rich narratives about love, life and the family cornerstone at St. Leonards beach.

St. Leonards‘ was captured by the band themselves in their home of Melbourne. Aside from some early drum recording assistance from Joel Taylor at The Black Lodge Studio, in true DIY spirit, the album was entirely co-produced, recorded and mixed by Alex Quayle (bass) and Stewart.

Slowly Slowly have come a long way since their unlikely beginnings in a label machine factory the Outer Eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Since then, they’ve recruited two more members – Patrick Murphy (drums) and Albert Doan (guitar) – dropped their revered debut album, ‘Chamomile‘, and hit stages across the country with the likes of Citizen, Sorority Noise and Something For Kate, going on to sell out their own headline shows. The band have also appeared at Beyond the Valley and Party in the Paddock festivals.

This May & June, Slowly Slowly will return to all their favourite places to showcase their new album.
