Frontier Touring are thrilled to announce Australia’s princess of dark pop, CXLOE, will be making her awaited return to the live stage this May and June for her biggest headline tour to date. The Heavy Part I Tour follows the release of her debut EP Heavy Part I, and will see CXLOE performing her hot new single ‘Cry & Drive’ along with favourites including ‘12 Steps’, ‘Heavy’ and ‘Swing’ from the critically acclaimed EP live for the very first time.
Hailing from Sydney, CXLOE wanders between alternative and electronic, with a unique pop sensibility bridging these two diverse genres to create a sound all her own. A pure musical aesthetic met with complex and dark lyrics brings a true contrast to her artistry and makes for stuck-in-your-head hits.
The Heavy Part I Tour will see CXLOE taking to the stage Friday 21 May at Melbourne’sThe Night Cat and Friday 11 June at Oxford Art Factory in Sydney for two shows; an early show at 6:00pm followed by a late show from 9:00pm.
CXLOE will also play a string of metro and regional shows throughout Wollongong, Adelaide, Perth, Newcastle, all kicking off at the Big Pineapple Festival in Queensland.*
Ready to be back performing live, CXLOE shares:
“So stoked to be finally touring my debut EP Heavy Part I! I feel so lucky we get to play live music in Australia and can’t wait to play these songs that I’ve been sitting with for so long. It will be the first time I get to play my new single ‘Cry and Drive’ so I’m really excited for everyone to see a different side of me and my music. The song is vulnerable and sonically unlike anything I’ve put out before.”
Fans can access the Frontier Members Pre-sale that will run for 24 hours beginning at Tuesday 4 May (12noon AEST). General public tickets will be available Friday 7 May (12noon AEST).
To date, CXLOE has amassed more than 42 million streams, over 5 million of which come from the USA. Support and critical acclaim has seen CXLOE receive enviable international attention across countless global playlists including over 50 global New Music Fridays on Spotify, airplay and coverage from triple j, all pop-leaning commercial radio stations across Australia and across global titles such as Billboard, CLASH, The Line Of Best Fit, LADYGUNN, V Magazine, Refinery29, VOGUE Australia, and countless more.
Alongside her tour news, CXLOE has today revealed new music is on the very near horizon, announcing that her first single for 2021 ‘Cry & Drive’ will be released next Thursday 6 May.
With more details to be revealed next week, ‘Cry & Drive’ stands as the first track to be taken from the body of work to follow Heavy Part I and sees CXLOE stepping into an honest vulnerability in a way she has not leaned fully into before.
“The Heavy Tour will be the first time I get to play my new single ‘Cry & Drive’ so I’m really excited for everyone to see a different side of me and my music,” she explains. “The song is vulnerable and sonically unlike anything I’ve put out before.”
