Fat Freddy’s Drop:
Slings & Arrows Australian Tour
Niche is proud to announce a welcome return for Fat Freddy’s Drop, as they play a run of headline shows on the back of their newest single ‘Slings & Arrows’.
The single is the first to emerge from Freddy’s Bays studio jams in preparation for their biggest ever headline show. The sold out Alexandra Palace in London has a 10,000 strong capacity and comes off the back of last year’s Blackbird album achieving an Impala Gold Sales Award in Europe. The show is a highlight in Freddy’s Slings And Arrows World Tour that includes the band’s Japan and Thailand debut shows and a return to Sydney Opera House.
Beat maker DJ Fitchie describes Slings And Arrows as, “ …musically the most reggae song we’ve ever made. We’ve gone back to our roots with a tough, conscious reggae tune that is classic Freddys.”
Slings And Arrows will be available on 7” as well as digital, dropping in New Zealand and Australia on 17th October followed by UK and Europe on 20th October. The as yet untitled new studio album is due for release in 2015.
Along with their show at Sydney Opera House, Fat Freddy’s Drop will also be appearing for select headline appearances at The Tivoli in Brisbane, Melbourne’s Palais Theatre & The Fremantle Arts Centre in Perth.
