Australian fans are salivating in anticipation with the news that San Francisco troubadour Ty Segall not only has a new record coming out, but he’s also set to make his Australian debut in a tour this July. Over the last six years, Ty has been grinding away cranking out his unique brand of ear-splitting, lo-fi garage punk rock which makes the  White Stripes sound like your grandma’s collection of Kamahl records. Still only 23 years old, the overachieving wunderkind has already released nine albums, including four solo albums, in the last four years in addition to three with his former band The Epsilons. That’s not to mention his collaborations with fellow San Fran neo-psych garage compadres and tour mates Thee Oh Sees; and yet he also amazingly still finds time to be a sometime member of Sic Alps.

The forthcoming Goodbye Bread is the follow up to 2010’s much-hyped Melted. This release find Segall more mellow than in the past, indulging in psychedelic pop in contrast to his previous acid drenched freakouts, but it’s still reliably weird, reverb coated and catchy as. Ty and his band will hit up Aussie shores for the first ever time this July. Fresh from wowing the crowds at South By South West, you’re encouraged to come and discover why in addition to his slew of previous studio releases, he’s also had THREE live albums released!
