]The Avalanches released ‘Wildflower’ in July 2016, their first album since 2000. Danny Brown, MF Doom, Mercury Rev’s Jonathan Donahue, Father John Misty and more featured on the record, with Robbie Chater saying, “What kept us going during the making this record was a belief in the day-to-day experience of music as a life force – as life energy. Hearing a certain song on a certain morning can change your day; it can make the world look different, changing the way you perceive light refracting through the atmosphere for the rest of the afternoon. Literally changing the colour and feeling- tone of your world”.
The band will perform live at The Academy, Dublin on June 16 and Belfast’s Limelight 1 on June 15, with tickets priced at €26.90 on sale Friday April 28 at 9am.
