“We’ll be performing songs off our latest album No Place Like Home, as well as a curated setlist of our personal favourites and fan favourites.

“There’ll be some theatrics as well, which I’m eager to pull off, but you’ll have to come to a show to find out what that is.”

The band has appeared live on The Jimmy Kimmel Show, CBS Saturday Morning and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Following their Australian shows, they’ll head over to North America.
