Tame Impala add US dates to Currents tour
Kevin Parker and co detail a further six shows in support of latest album
Tame Impala have added six US dates to their Currents world tour.
They’ll start a European trek later this month, which includes three UK dates in February. They’ll then head to South America in March before returning to the US in June.
Speaking of their latest record, Parker said: “I think I wanted to make songs that I’d always wanted to do, but I’d always shut out, because I thought those influences were not fitting the realm of psych rock.
“But the more I explore, the more I realise that those boundaries are meant to be broken.”
Tame Impala have been nominated for a Grammy in the Best Alternative Music Album category for Currents. The event takes place at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, on February 15.
