triple j, Street Press Australia, Select Music and Archangelsky present

Fresh from an electrifying set at SXSW recently, Australia's electro-pop outfit Gold Fields, today announce their Black Sun tour, playing headline shows nationally throughout June and July 2013, including a homecoming Ballarat show on Friday July 12.

The tour kicks off on Friday June 21 in Fremantle WA before heading around the country playing metro and regional shows concluding in Hobart on Saturday July 20. Full list of tour dates are below.

Named as one of MTV's Artists To Watch In 2013 in Australia and nominated for an MTVU Woodie Award for Breaking Artist in the US, the band's shiny pulsating debut album 'Black Sun' was named triple j's Feature Album Of The Week and was praised by many rave reviews on release.

With 'Black Sun' debuting at #32 on the National ARIA Albums Chart and #7 on the ARIA Australia Artist Albums Chart last week, Gold Fields are stoked to be bringing their live show home, "We've been waiting so long to get back and play shows at home again. It feels like ages! We've spent months honing our live set and touring overseas, and the thought of doing our album tour at home is what's kept us going. These shows will be the biggest Gold Fields gigs we've done and now that the record is out, we can't wait to bring it to life in the venues and cities we love in Australia."

The band self-produced the debut album 'Black Sun' at home in Ballarat, after initial tracking sessions in LA with producer Mickey Petralia (Ladytron, Peaches) and Sydney with producer/engineer Scott Horscroft (The Presets, Sleepy Jackson, Silverchair).
