KURT VILE NATIONAL TOUR ANNOUNCED!

Philadelphia’s Kurt Vile and his band, The Violators are heading to Australia for the very first time as part of the 21st Meredith Music Festival and will also embark on national headline tour.

Kurt Vile might belong to a long lineage of classic American songwriters, but he’s the only one who’s alive and in his prime today. He has been on a slow burn accent since 2008, steadily rising from the American underground through relentless touring and the release of four smashing albums.  His latest release Smoke Ring For My Halo perfectly showcases the amazing range of Kurt’s voice.
