Urthboy ‘second heartbeat Australian tour’ after releasing his 5th solo album, Urthboy is heading out on the road to tour his biggest album to date.

"It looks like Urthboy has dropped one of the finest Aussie albums of the year" - BEAT

It has been a massive year for Urthboy already, and we're only 3 months in. The Past Beats Inside Me Like A Second Heartbeat, may be his most successful release to date, snapping up triple j Feature Album and garnering ridiculous 4 and 5 star reviews. Album preview shows in Sydney and Melbourne sold out in advance, so it's with great excitement we reveal the album launch tour in May and June. It will be a time to celebrate loudly with a new band in tow and many special guests.

His moving first single ‘Long Loud Hours’ burst onto the scene in October last year with a huge impact on the airwaves and the ears of many, landing #33 in the triple j Hottest 100 after 3 years of quiet since his last release. Bertie Blackman’s vocal takes the intricate storytelling to new heights, above the brooding pulse of the Hermitude produced beat. But this was only the beginning…

Urthboy will be supported by rising star L-FRESH The LION, the newest signing to the ElefantTraks family. With the recent release of his monstrous single 1 in 100,000 and a huge sophomore album set to drop in May, L-FRESH The LION's energetic and arresting live show is unmissable.

Opening for the tour will be the up-and-coming Okenyo, who wowed listeners with her playful and charismatic vocals on Urthboy’s single, ‘Second Heartbeat’. Okenyo has been described as the love child of Janelle Monae and Frank Ocean, and with the release of new music imminent, she is someone to show up early for.

The Past Beats Inside Me Like A Second Heartbeat’ is available now through Elefant Traks / Inertia.
