Handsome Tours is elated to announce the return of beloved alt-rockers The Lemonheadsto Australia this December.
Since they were formed in Boston, Mass, in T986 by Evan Dando, the family tree of The Lemonheads has many twisted tentacles anal tangential branches, and a host of one-liners etched into its bark. Anyone could be a Lemonhead but for how long who knows? Leastways they’ll be shoulder-to-shoulder with Evan throwing discordant chords against alt-country-tinged melodies, playing that light and dark card. Through their ranks passed Descendents, Blokes Babies, Dinosaur Jr. and members of Fuzzy.
In 2019, The Lemonheads returned with “Varshons 2”, their tenth studio album. Evan is at the helm with producer Matthew Cullenalso on guitar and siren,Come and Codeine’s Chris Brakowsupplying guitar and Willy Mason and Nina Violet sitting in. It’s another mixtape in a different kitchen placing the oddball and the unsung next toThe Eaglesand Nick Cave. Where else could you hear the music of Tom Morgan’s short-lived Givegoods, English curmudgeons The Bevis Frondand Lucinda Williamsso seamlessly joined at the hip?
The Lemonheads will be making stops in Fremantle, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, as well as appearing at this year’s Fairgrounds Festivalin Berry.
