Hiatus Kaiyote made their Jimmy Kimmel Live! debut last night, performing ‘By Fire’ on air and bonus tracks ‘Breathing Underwater’ as well as their Grammy-nominated song ‘Nakamarra’. They also wrapped their month- long U.S. tour with a sold out show at Brooklyn Bowl last night. They also performed with Little Dragon at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and were handpicked by Questlove to perform at The Roots Picnic this past weekend. The band will tour Europe and Australia this winter including two shows at the Glastonbury Festival in the UK with Australian tour dates scheduled in August.
The Melbourne based four piece; Nai Palm (vocals/guitar), Paul Bender (bass), Perrin Moss (drums/percussion) and Simon Mavin (keyboards)—released CHOOSE YOUR WEAPON last month on Flying Buddha/Sony Music Masterworks and Sony Music Entertainment Australia. It went on to debut at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart in the US, and entered the ARIA charts at #22.
The album is an 18-track, 70-minute odyssey from the band. It takes listeners on a journey through the group’s self- created ecosystem, populated with songs each embodying its own mini-cinematic sonic soundscape. The album is the follow-up to their celebrated 2013 debut album TAWK TOMAHAWK. Legendary producer/songwriter Salaam Remi handpicked Hiatus Kaiyote as the first signing for his new label Flying Buddha, an imprint of Sony Music Masterworks, and they immediately gave TAWK TOMAHAWK an official worldwide release in July 2013.
