“Exciting News! ? @balubrigada Bop Fiasco: Volume 2 is coming to our shores in just a few weeks! And guess what? We’re stoked to announce the incredibly talented Lilly Carron will be joining them for all shows! ? Get ready to experience a breath of fresh air as Lilly returns with her new summer ready single ‘Apricot Sun’ from her upcoming EP,” Banished Music wrote on Instagram.
Balu Brigada have been performing since they were 18. They released an EP ‘I Should Be Home’ after being signed to Atlantic Records last year. Their latest musical offering is ‘Find A Way,’ a six-track EP that was released last month.
“1 thing we are really excited about is finding our way ? to the motherland, for what we like to call a ‘Bop Fiasco’. These are going to be our most legitimate sets yet, there’s synths and vocoders involved (an ear candy spectacle) and lots of other surprises. Make sure you come along, it’s been a big year since we were last home and we truly can’t wait to see you all!” they shared on Instagram while announcing this tour.
The duo made their US debut this year and were also on support duties for Arden Jones and Quarters of Change. Balu Brigada will be heading to Australia this month for concerts in Sydney and Melbourne.
