TAME IMPALA Performs On JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! + Touring Australia In April


‘The Slow Rush,’ Kevin Parker’s fourth studio album as Tame Impala was released last month to widespread acclaim. Parker landed his second #1 ARIA album in Australia, his highest selling album to date in the USA and UK and 14 top 10 chart positions around the world. Tame Impala performed two songs from the album – the single Lost In Yesterday and album track Breathe Deeper, on Jimmy Kimmel Live!



Solidifying Parker as one of the world’s most successful modern music masterminds, ‘The Slow Rush’ was recorded between Los Angeles and Parker’s studio in his hometown of Fremantle.  In Australia, the 12-track album was Feature Album on triple j, FBi, RRR, and RTR and saw him splashed across prestigious magazines covers around the world including DIY, Billboard, CLASH, GQ, magic, musikexpress, Inrockuptibles and many more.

After electrifying the hearts and minds of fans and receiving praise from critics around the world, Tame Impala will commence the first leg of their 30-date North American tour this month before they return home in April to perform their world-renowned live shows. Following the Australian tour, Tame Impala will headline Governors Ball, All Points East Festival, Bonnaroo Festival and conquer the remaining North American tour dates across May, June, July and August.

“Clearly, all the tinkering paid off. The Slow Rush is an extraordinarily detailed opus whose influences reach into specific corners of the past six decades, from Philly soul and early prog to acid house, adult-contemporary R&B, and Late Registration…The effect is something like multiple YouTube videos accidentally playing at once, a restless mind making gorgeous chaos—the work of a true perfectionist. Even without the adrenaline-filled highs, the compositions are as rich and thoughtful as ever..” 
– PITCHFORK
The Slow Rush is stunningly pure and heartfelt pop.”
– THE GUARDIAN
Kevin can do anything,” …He can play anything, and play it incredibly well. He has killer melodic instincts. And he has an impossibly cool aesthetic when it comes to sonics, without ever trying to be cool. It can be intimidating to collaborate with someone like that, but also his take on things is so unique, I never want to distill that.”
– MARK RONSON // BILLBOARD
“Tame Impala’s ‘The Slow Rush’ is worth the wait. Kevin Parker’s first album in five years had a prolonged rollout, but he delivers on the Coachella-sized expectations.” 
-VICE
“While everybody else in the catchy-song business seems to be running in circles, he’s out there unapologetically having fun, creating new delivery systems for his own exotic brand of sonic euphoria.” 
– NPR
“He has risen to the occasion with an album full of the necessary girth and scope, which doesn’t succumb to the forces of inertia.”
– UNCUT | 4 STARS
“As far as follow-ups to an earth-shattering run of albums go, this is much more than just a solid return. It is, overall, an exhilarating listen. This band aren’t rock music’s saviours; they’re so much more than that.”
– NME | 4 STARS
“One of the chief pleasures to be had from The Slow Rush is the sheer depth of sonic treats packed into each song. Tame Impala might be operating in a field of one, but even then, Kevin Parker is still streaks ahead.” 
– Q | 4 STARS
“Kevin Parker is a prog-rock wiz with a heart of pop gold, spooling out resplendent psychedelic symphonies in Tame Impala… floating above his thick disco, funk, and trip-hop beats…everything seems obsessively considered, as if he spends more time perfecting the hi-hat clicks than most artists take making their whole record. If someone told you an army of musicians had contributed to The Slow Rush, you wouldn’t be surprised.”
