You might want to lie down on the couch for this. Yesterday, the Avalanches updated their website and all of their social media accounts, once again stoking the flames of anticipation for the very long-awaited follow-up to their 2000 classic Since I Left You. And now, as Pitchfork points out, they’ve announced their first live performances in nearly a decade: two at Barcelona’s Primavera Sound festival, one at London’s Field Day festival, and one at Australia’s Splendour In The Grass, all in June and July. They haven’t mentioned anything about any new music — yet — but this is still huge news for fans. (One might even go so far as to say that it’s crazy in the coconut.) Check out dates below.
06-03 Barcelona, Spain @ Primavera Sound
