Aussie alt-rockers Ocean Alley have announced a headline show at the Button Factory for 9th April 2022 as part of their European tour next year.
Having toured their homeland relentlessly, including performances at Summer Sounds, Greatest Southern Night and Next Exit Festival, the tour will provide Irish fans with their first chance to hear the band’s critically acclaimed and ARIA-nominated third album ‘Lonely Diamond’ live in person.
Speaking about the forthcoming tour, guitarist Mitch Galbraith said, “After missing out on touring Europe and the UK last year and this year, we are looking forward to getting over and playing live again in 2022. We are yet to perform our latest album ‘Lonely Diamond’ overseas, and we have been working on a new light show and live experience during our time off the stage. We’ve got more new music in the works which could make an appearance as well… Most of all, we are looking forward to catching up with old friends and making new ones. Hope to see you at the show!”
In-between shows, the band have dedicated their time to multiple worthy causes back home, such as with long-time community partners One Eighty, Cerebral Palsy Alliance and Red Dust. A raffle the band held back in May for the towns impacted by Tropical Cyclone Seroja saw $11,884.71 raised by their fans and matched by the group for a total donation of $23,769.42 to the Lord Mayor’s Distress Relief Fund.
‘Lonely Diamond’ follows the success of 2018’s breakthrough ‘Chiaroscuro’, which saw the sextet propelled into national prominence with their double platinum-selling single Confidence, which took the top spot in Triple J’s Hottest 100 of 2018.
