The Pikelet Album Launch Tour 2013 has been announced, with Melbourne’s exploratory synth-pop adventurers announcing launch dates for third album Calluses, due for release on Chapter Music on 16 August 2013.

The follow-up to 2010’s Australian Music Prize-shortlisted Stem, Calluses is a darker, denser beast than its predecessors, recorded, mixed and mastered with John Lee (Lost Animal, Mountains In the Sky).

From the post-apocalyptic eeriness of ‘Pressure Cooker’, to the 60s Euro space-jazz of Forward Motion, to the frenetic introspection of first single ‘Combo’, the album is bold, ambitious and layered, a record that rewards repeated listens with subtle details and hypnotic depths.

The Chapter Music darlings are helping birth Calluses to the world with a thrifty three-date album launch tour this September/October, playing headline shows in Sydney, Newcastle, and Melbourne.

Don’t miss your first chance to catch Pikelet’s newest material in the live setting.

Check out the lead single ‘Combo’ below.
