UK shoegaze pioneers Slowdive make their long awaited Australian debut in 2018. Nearly thirty years after forming and after a twenty-two year hiatus, Slowdive reunited in 2014 to play Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona. In January, they released the beguiling single ‘Star Roving’, followed by a self-titled fourth album in May, a return to form hailed by Stereogum as, “as stunning a comeback record as I can recall in recent times. It’s on par with the band’s best work”.

Slowdive’s stargazing alchemy is set to further entrance the faithful while enticing a legion of fresh ears. These eight new tracks, simultaneously expansive and the band’s most direct material to date, have eclipsed any ‘trip down memory lane’, and firmly establish Slowdive as a band at the top of their game.

With major international festival appearances under their belt this year, and a vibrant, atmospheric set, Slowdive remain one of the most potent live bands on the planet.

The beauty of their crystalline sound is almost hard to believe, every note in its perfect place.” – Pitchfork
“Slowdive washes entire canvases in buckets of sound, creating gradient color schemes… perfect sound, perfect lighting conditions, and hypnotic background imagery…” - Consequence of Sound
“Incredible comeback single “Star Roving” is the perfect example of this new Slowdive. The lush guitars are rugged yet beautifully layered and Halstead’s voice” - The Line Of Best Fit
