Clubfeet to join Tegan & Sara for Oz tourCanadian songbirds Tegan and Sara have announced South African act Clubfeet as the support for their Australian tour.

Canadian singer-songwriters Tegan & Sara will return to Australia this April and May for Groovin’ The Moo festival and a run of headline shows, with their Melbourne and Brisbane dates selling fast. Support for all sideshows will be the Australian / South African synth-pop quintet Clubfeet. The band released their debut album Gold on Gold in late 2010 and was championed by the likes of Pitchfork (“instantly charming”), Spin, Filter, NME and The Guardian. They performed their first ever live shows at New York’s CMJ Festival to rave reviews, resulting in Paste Magazine’s Top 10 Bands of CMJ. 2013 has so far seen the release of their second album Heirs and Graces, which included the hit single ‘Heartbreak’.

The last time the twins visited Australian shores was back in 2010 for the traveling Groovin’ The Moo extravaganza – their fifth visit Down Under – and they enjoyed the rural festivities so much they’ve signed on again for the 2013 installment, along with undertaking their own massive headlining shows in Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. They’ve just dropped their seventh album, Heartthrob, so they’ll be armed with an entire arsenal of new tunes as well as their canon of trusty old faves.

So whether you’re a long-term diehard or a newcomer to the myriad delights of Tegan And Sara, they’ll be playing pretty much every city and rural centre in the country so there’s plenty of opportunities to check them out when they hit Australian shores once again this April and May!
