Frontier Touring is pleased to announce that Albert Hammond Jr. – songwriter and guitarist with garage rock giants The Strokes – will return to Australia in July 2018, for two intimate headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne.

No stranger to Australian shores and with 20 years of critically-adored music under his belt, Hammond Jr. makes his way back down under to perform songs from his recently released acclaimed fourth album Francis Trouble, out now via Red Bull Records.

With his latest disc of exuberant, playful guitar pop inspired by the persona shifts of David Bowie, the talented songsmith has been winning over fans throughout the US on a recent tour. Hammond Jr. has several multi-platinum albums to his career – first up, the ground-breaking 2001 Strokes’ masterpiece Is This It, not to mention follow-up releases. Meanwhile his breezy solo recordings are every bit as enticing: 2006 debut Yours To Keep, 2008’s ¿Cómo Te Llama?, 2015’s Momentary Masters, and now, 2018’s Francis Trouble.

With newfound energy, Francis Trouble sees Hammond Jr. taking “the baggage of my name off the record” (see The Village Voice here). Francis Trouble explores a deeply personal topic – the stillborn death of Albert’s twin brother, Francis, whose existence he only learned of two years ago.

It was not until he was 36-years-old that Hammond Jr. learned from an aunt that part of his twin brother had remained in the womb, and was born alongside him – a fingernail. The songwriter soon wondered if the new musical direction he felt calling came from another avenue of himself, perhaps emanating from whatever he and Francis had shared for the few short months they had together in the womb. And so an energetic alter ego was born.
