Pond 2024 Australia Tour

Pond tour Australia June-July 2024.
Our eclectic team of writers from around Australia – and a couple beyond – with decades of combined experience and interest in all fields.

Fresh from supporting Queens Of The Stone Age on their national tour, Australian psychedelic lords Pond will return to the stage for their own run of shows this winter.

Already slated to play Vivid Sydney and Splendour, the Nick Allbrook-led Pond will visit Hobart, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Fremantle June-July.

The group will also release their tenth studio album 'Stung!' on 21 June (pre-order it), teasing that record today with new single '(I'm) Stung'. "I wrote most of this while mowing someone's lawn," shares Nick.

"I went home and put my fingers on the piano and pretty much played the base of it first go. This is a very rare and special treat and buoyed me for weeks.

"It's funny because I had a mad crush on someone, and they dropped me like a sack of sh.t and this song just flew down and clocked me right in the forehead and I felt totally better. Then Gin and Gum added all their magic – cool sounds, passing chords.

"It's about being totally, pathetically stung by someone and just having to be cool with it being unrequited. Being resilient, accepting that you are a bit of a goose, but life goes on."

Filmed by Pond and Chris Adams on Super 8 film, the accompanying video clip for '(I'm) Stung' sees the band adventuring in the sand dunes of Lancelin, Western Australia.

"We went to Lancelin, one of the most stereotypically Western Australian-looking places in Western Australia, armed with a Super 8 camera, 12 tubes of silver body paint and a rock eisteddfod wardrobe," Pond says of the video.

"Nothing but the blistering heat and dehydration and a battalion of legendary holidaymakers in ATVs stood between us and cinema history.

"Our friend Chris Adams also put on his little 'filmic auteur' cap and carried our sh.t around while we cavorted among the dunes dressed like a knock off NSYNC. Omg and the bee!!

"The bee obviously makes it. Nick kind of lost his mind in the endless whiteness and started fearfully battling the beast in the sky. Probably all the paint fumes."

Tickets on sale from 9am (local time) on 28 March.
