ALEX LLOYD Celebrating 20 years of Black the Sun


Australian singer-songwriter and multi ARIA winning artist Alex Lloyd has announced he will commemorate the 20th anniversary of his 1999 debut album Black The Sun with a national tour this October and November. The shows will feature the album’s original line-up, and for the first time in two decades the entire double platinum-selling record will be played in full. Western Australian fans can catch Alex Lloyd at three shows; The Prince of Wales on Thursday, October 17, The Dunsborough Hotel on Friday, October 18 and Freo.Social on Saturday, October 19. He will be joined by Canadian duo Hey Major on all dates.

Black The Sun was a landmark album when it dropped in 1999, and the public quickly fell for the quirky collection of electronica inspired pop gems Lloyd had crafted with producer and Psychedelic Furs member, Ed Buller. With its deft amalgam of exploratory electronics and heartfelt balladry, the album went on to win triple j’s Album of the Year and the ARIAs for Best New Artist and Best Male Artist, igniting a long-lasting affair with music lovers and critics alike.

“It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years!” Lloyd says. “A lot has happened in that time, however this album still resonates with me maybe even more so now. That’s why I am super excited to announce I am getting the band back together to head out on the road again to celebrate Black The Sun on its 20th anniversary. Full band shows, all the bells and whistles, relive my 20s…hell yes!”

Alex Lloyd plays The Prince of Wales on Thursday, October 17, The Dunsborough Hotel on Friday, October 18 and Freo.Social on Saturday, October 19. Tickets are on sale Wednesday, July 10 from www.alexlloyd.com.
