Liam Finn kicks off first-ever full band tour at SxSW and announces first album in three years due this Spring.


Liam Finn has confirmed his first ever North American tour with a full band. Kicking off at SXSW Finn will play the Yep Roc and New Zealand showcases among other sets. From Austin, he’ll head to Los Angeles March 23 to begin a month of headlining shows in the U.S. and Canada. See below for full dates.

Finn has spent much of the past year working on the follow-up to his debut I’ll Be Lightning, [more info/order now] which will be released this spring on Yep Roc.

A New Zealand-native, Finn burst onto the American scene in 2008 with the release of I’ll Be Lightning,, which earned him Artist to Watch accolades from The Wall Street Journal, Rolling Stone, Stereogum and more. Spin called it “a remarkable solo debut album of bittersweet indie pop,” while Entertainment Weekly praised his “effervescent choruses [and] swooning harmonies.”
