Akron/Family are set to it Australian shores for the first time in two years in a much anticipated tour. Amalgamating soaring harmonies, pastoral chants, rolling percussion and driving guitars set against an expansive aural backdrop, the band are a veritable polyphonic tour de force.

Last touring  Australia in 2009, Akron/Family’s  unforgettable performances galvanised the band’s reputation for primal and intense live shows.Chanelling he best of Nirvana, Akron/Family’s album S/T II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT was written in a cabin built into the side of an active volcano in Akan National Park, Hokkaido, Japan and was then recorded in an abandoned train station in Detroit with Chris Koltay (Liars, Women, Deerhunter, Holy Fuck, No Age) sitting in twiddling the knobs. Don’t miss your chance to catch these polyphonic redeemers when they hit Aussie shores.
