Alabama songstress Waxahatchee has announced supports for her upcoming Australian shows, in the form of Infinite Void, Mere Women and Camp Cope.  Following an acclaimed run of intimate solo shows in July, Waxahatchee’s February 2016 tour marks the Australian debut of her five-piece live band.

2015 marked a breakout year for Crutchfield, with her third album ‘Ivy Tripp’ released in April to universal accolades. Pitchfork hailed the album as “reminiscent of the best ’90s indie rock: unhurried and natural and real” whilst the Austin Chronicle called Crutchfield “Cat Power for the next generation.” Mojo lauded the record as a “a complicated, slow-burning wonder” while Rolling Stone revelled in its moments punctuated by “frenetic pop joy”.

The success of ‘Ivy Tripp’ has jettisoned the Philadelphia-based songwriter into the global spotlight, touring with Kurt Vile and Sleater-Kinney, as well as playing festivals including Pitchfork and Austin City Limits. Waxahatchee made her Australian debut in July 2015 with a pair of rousing solo performances in Sydney and Melbourne.

Now returning backed with a full band, Waxahatchee will perform her confessional, indie-rock anthems for Australian fans in all of their explosive, fuzzy glory.

Supporting Waxahatchee on both East Coast dates will be Melbourne’s Infinite Void, who are touring in support of their new split 7-inch with Denmark’s Moth: Listen Here. In Melbourne, Waxahatchee and Infinite Void will be joined by soulful punk outfit, Camp Cope, who just released their amazing single, “Lost: Season One” in anticipation of a full-length debut on Poison City Records this April: Listen Here. In Sydney, Waxahatchee and Infinite Void will share the stage with Mere Women, whose album ‘Your Town’ was released in 2014 to enormous acclaim:Listen Here.
