RETURNING TO AUSTRALIA FOR NATIONAL TOUR DATES THIS OCTOBER

WITH SPECIAL GUEST SAHARA BECK
& BOI&ESKAE, MIA WRAY, ANABELLE KAY, BANJO JACKSON & WANDERLUST CONFIRMED AS LOCAL ARTISTS OPENING IN RESPECTIVE CITY SHOWS

Love Is The Great Rebellion feels like vintage Ben Lee’ – The Guardian

‘With this album Lee once again proves what a talented songwriter he is … a triumph that is sure to do well' – Reverb

‘Rediscovering the catchy, heartfelt pop … Lee should win fans over easily with the new tunes – and some old favourites’ – Sydney Morning Herald

With three sold-out intimate East Coast dates about to kick off over the June long weekend and brand new album Love Is The Great Rebellion released just last week in – Ben Lee is back! Frontier Touring is pleased to announce that one of Australia’s best-loved singer-songwriters will return to our shores this spring to embark on a national tour, including special regional and outer city dates throughout October.

Lee’s insightful lyrics and adept pop compositions – heard on gems like ‘Cigarettes Will Kill You’, ‘Gamble Everything For Love’, ‘Running With Scissors’, ‘Love Me Like The World Is Ending’ and countless others – have made him one of the Australia’s most identifiable and celebrated popsmiths.

Love Is The Great Rebellion is the tenth longplayer from the prolific artist and his first album since signing with Warner Bros. Records this February. Led by charming single ‘Big Love’, the iconic ‘Catch My Disease’ singer returns to the familiar, unabashed sound he’s loved for – upbeat, heart-on-sleeve pop. It’s a family affair too: Lee’s wife, actress Ione Skye, makes an appearance, as does his five-year-old daughter Goldie and his father-in-law, ’60s folk icon Donovan.

To record the predominant pop of Love Is The Great Rebellion, Lee reteamed with acclaimed US producer Brad Wood (Liz Phair, Something For Kate), producer of Lee’s 4x ARIA-winning, double-platinum Awake Is The New Sleep. Back in 2005, that record hit #5 on the ARIA Albums Chart and earned Lee a place in history with trophies for Song of the Year and Most Performed Australian Work at the 2005 APRA Awards. Meanwhile he also took out the #2 spot on triple j’s Hottest 100.

From his days fronting Noise Addict as a teen (admired by Thurston Moore and Mike D) to records about experiences with psychedelic brews (2013’s Ayahuasca: Welcome to the Work), Ben Lee is one of a kind. Don’t miss him playing across the country this October!

Love Is The Great Rebellion is out now via Warner Music Australia.
