LADYHAWKE Returns To Australia For ‘Time Flies’ Tour + New Single + Album Announced


Frontier Touring is thrilled to announce Ladyhawke (Pip Brown) will bring her Time Flies Tour to Australia this October and November. Returning to our shores for the first time in five years, Ladyhawke will take in venues along the East Coast, from Brisbane’s The Triffid through the Gold Coast, Sydney, finishing at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel.


Pip says of hitting the road in Australia later this year –“It seems unreal to be announcing a tour after the last year we’ve all had, but since the travel bubble has been announced I’m able to now tour Australia! This is honestly something I couldn’t see happening for ages, so here it is!! I’m doing some shows!! I hope to see you all soon!!”

Also unveiled today is Mixed Emotions, the second single to be lifted from Ladyhawke’s anticipated new studio album ‘Time Flies’, released on 8 October (BMG). Penned with Jono Sloan and Nick Littlemore (both of PNAU, Empire of the Sun), Mixed Emotions is a vibrant synth-heavy dancefloor filler that throws back to Ladyhawke’s classic sound.

Pip says about the new single, “Mixed Emotions was written with old mates Jono Sloan and Nick Littlemore while I was on a writing trip in LA. Sloan had come up with a really cool bass groove which Nick and I riffed over to get the lyrics and melody. The song is about all the things you can feel with one person, sometimes all in a single day. Ups and downs, confusion, highs, and lows. And everything in between!” 



Released in March, lead album single Guilty Love featuring BROODS signifies Ladyhawke’s comeback anthem. One of triple j’s Most Played songs of March/April, the track has been embraced by tastemakers globally and chalked up over 1 million streams.
 

From her early days playing in Wellington band Two Lane Blacktop and Sydney act Teenager (formed by Nick Littlemore), Pip Brown’s knack for writing a catchy pop hook has garnered her global recognition. Coupled with 80’s rock-chic ambiance, Pip quickly made a name for herself under the moniker Ladyhawke, releasing her debut self-titled album in 2008. Boasting electro-pop gems My DeliriumParis Is BurningDusk Till Dawn and more, the record made waves internationally and was followed by 2012’s ‘Anxiety’, which Rolling Stone described as “a buzzsaw-sharp pop-rock album, full of hard-charging hooks”.
 
Since the release of her latest album, 2016’s acclaimed ‘Wild Things’, Pip has experienced major life moments; she’s married, given birth to a daughter, been diagnosed and treated for skin cancer and decided to make the courageous move and deal with the ongoing depression she has suffered head on.

“It felt like last year I changed my whole life. I decided to try medication for the first time, and it turned everything around and made me feel like I haven’t in a long time.”


After a quiet 2020, like much of the world, Ladyhawke is ready to return to the live stage.
 With an impressive live performance that showcases her “undeniable talent” (Louder Than War), it’s impossible to stand still at a Ladyhawke show.

With accolades under belt including multiple ARIA and New Zealand Music Awards, along with nominations for Brit, MTV and NME Awards, Ladyhawke is a force to be reckoned with. Playing intimate rooms on her Australian return, music lovers best get in quickly when tickets go on sale on June 4.
