Eclectic duo Calexico have been riding high following the release of their genre bending ninth album Edge of the Sun, and now the band are set to bring their sweet, sweet sounds to Australia with a national headline tour and a spot at WOMAD Festival in March 2016.
Joey Burns and John Convertino have drawn from 60s folk-pop, American indie rock and mariachi to create an eclectic record, one that has earned near universal praise from the critics. The tour will see the band travel the east coast before stopping over in Perth and then jumping the pond for a date in Auckland. The tour will finish up in Adelaide and Aotearoa at the annual WOMAD festivals.
Head to the band’s website for all the tour details and tickets.
