It looks like Tame Impala are about to announce an Australian tour

It’s a brain-teaser. First, there’s a blurry video featuring multiple short clips of fan-shot footage on the official Tame Impala Twitter account.

Then, there is a mysterious link to, accompanied by two Australian and and New Zealand emojis flags. When you click, you end up on a pretty straightforward page that reveals the band will make an announcement on Monday, January 20.

Tame Impala have teased a potential forthcoming Australia and New Zealand tour with a mysterious Twitter post. Sign us up.

It also includes a sign-up field to “receive communication from the promoters involved”, not to mention the hyperlinked privacy policy file by Frontier Touring — an Australian and New Zealand promoter of music and entertainment goods and services. Anyway, we did the digging and it looks like Kevin Parker is gearing up to announce a nationwide tour.

The tour will very probably be in support of Tame Impala’s fourth studio album, The Slow Rush, which is due out on Valentine’s Day. The record features multiple singles including Lost in Yesterday, released earlier this month.

Lost in Yesterday is quite similar to The Moment, a song that appeared on Tame Impala’s latest album, Currents (2015). Energetic and nostalgic, the single is a retrospection on the doubts that we may have had, and on the bad memories that become good over the years.

Between the regret of the unsaid with a deceased father in Posthumous Forgiveness and the memories of Lost in Yesterday, it seems like Tame Impala is taking us on a trip into the past. The Slow Rush will be released on February 14.
