MEW. A much celebrated and loved experimental rock outfit with a career spanning more than 20 years, across seven acclaimed studio albums, with fans the world over - and yet, they have only graced Australia's shores ONCE!

Luckily, Bird's Robe (who brought them Down Under for their tremendously successful maiden voyage in 2015) are bringing them again to showcase their extensive back catalogue and their new album Visuals. Presented by The Music, Bird's Robe & Australian Mew fan community Mewstralia, the tour will take place in September 2017.

They are once again hitting Brisbane (September 10 at The Triffid), Sydney (September 11 at Manning Bar) and Melbourne (September 12 at Max Watts), but for the first time ever, MEW will be venturing to Perth (September 13 at Capitol).

Bird's Robe Director Mike Solo was ecstatic to bring MEW to Australia once again. "I truly thought that the 2015 tour might have been a once in a lifetime experience. I am stoked - and I know that are plenty of Mew fans out there who will be too - that MEW are coming to Australia again and to be a part of making that happen. These shows are going to be very special. Their show has only gone from strength to strength since "+ -" we will be helping them put together an even better production this time round. Thanks once again to Mewstralia and all the fans here whose passionate support has been so instrumental in helping this return happen."

Recorded and self-produced in Copenhagen, MEW's latest album and the reason for this new tour, Visuals was completed in under a year and sees Mew at their most concise, each song representing its own little chapter and narrative. Twenty years into their career, Visuals is the distinctive sound of Mew seizing the moment.

Mew formed as a quartet in late 1994 and following their debut ‘A Triumph for Man’ in 1997, they quickly established cult status. Their commercial break-through came in 2003 with the release of “Frengers” – showcasing their unique and quirky approach to crafting classic pop melodies. The record saw them tour with R.E.M. before continuing with 2005’s ‘And The Glass Handed Kites’.  Their 2009 opus ‘No More Stories Are Told Today, I’m Sorry They Washed Away // No More Stories, The World is Grey, I’m Tired, Let’s Wash Away’ continued their ever expansive musical backdrop. Their record “+-“ saw them reach the heights of indie-rock stardom, headlining London’s Roundhouse and performing at festivals like Roskilde, Pukkelpop and Summer Sonic and one of the band’s biggest fans, Kiwi songstress KIMBRA, brought further buzz to the band when she featured on tracks ‘The Night Believer’ and ’Water Slides.’.

Joining the tour for all shows are special guests CLOSURE IN MOSCOW. The Melbourne based progressive rock band sport their own brand of quirky experimental pop and have spent much of the past three years writing for their upcoming third album, in amongst tours with the likes of Coheed and Cambria, The Fall of Troy, Protest the Hero & Dance Gavin Dance. September will see the quintet unveil the first taste of new material live, along with a smattering of hits from their popular debut ‘First Temple’ and the follow-up ‘Pink Lemonade.’

Presented by Birds Robe and The Music, MEW's Visuals Tour will hit shores in September.
