Alt-J return to Australia for a third tour

Alt-J have announced their third Australian tour within the space of a year, after selling our all of their previous down-under shows in less than five minutes.

The Leeds band were visibly stunned and chuffed that people who lived half a world away knew the words to songs they wrote, and it was extremely endearing - plus the fact that the lead singer looks like Andy from Parks and Recreation and the bass player looks like Gareth from The Office (the funny, clever version of The Office, we mean) helped us love them even more.

Australia is their biggest market in the world, which makes it exciting but not really a surprise that they will be back, yet again, in July - this time playing arenas (in PerthMelbourne and Sydney) because they are an epic, world-beating arena band, even if Australian fans are the only ones smart enough to realise.

The Frontier presale begins at 2pm on March 6, and tickets go on sale to the general public on March 13, at the crack of 9am (Perth at noon).
