Lloyd Cole is no stranger to Australian shores. He was the front-man for The Commotions during their stadium tour of 1986, returned for his Small Ensemble tour of 2011 and has performed many solo tours in between, selling out shows around the country.

In 2014 Lloyd Cole returns for his most extensive Australian tour yet taking in all the major cities plus a host of regional centres.

This year’s tour comes on the back of a new album: Standards, recorded in late 2012 after Lloyd was inspired by the release of Bob Dylan’s latest album Tempest.

LLoydCole‘I took it as a kick up the backside. I’d been languishing. Some years I wouldn’t even write a song. But when I heard that record, I thought, “Damn! I’ve got all these notebooks full of ideas. What would happen if I just worked on them bloody hard and made a record?”’

Arguably the best album Lloyd has made since his debut 30 years ago with The Commotions, Standards is also his most ‘rocking’, and features musical contributions from Matthew Sweet, ex-Lou Reed sideman Fred Maher, former Commotion Blair Cowan, Joan as Police Woman and Lloyd’s son Will.

For the 2104 Australian tour Lloyd Cole will perform works from Standards plus material from right across his catalogue, solo and in ‘intimate mode’.

Currumbin Soundlounge Friday July 11. Doors open from 7.30pm, show begins at 8.30pm.

Tickets $40 online, or $45 at the door unless sold out.
