mclusky Announce 2022 Australian Tour

20 years to the day since they released their stellar second album, the Welsh indie rockers have announced an Aussie tour to celebrate the anniversary of Mclusky Do Dallas.


20 years to the day since they released their ferocious Mclusky Do Dallas album, Welsh indie-rockers mclusky have revealed Aussie tour plans in support of the record’s anniversary.

Released on April 1st, 2002, Mclusky Do Dallas was the Welsh outfit’s second album. Considered their breakthrough record, the album managed to gain widespread acclaim upon its release, ultimately being considered one of the best albums of all time by many publications. In 2009, Pitchfork even labelled it the 94th best album of the decade.

With tracks such as “Lightsabre Cocksucking Blues”, “Alan Is a Cowboy Killer”, and “To Hell with Good Intentions” being released as singles, the record quickly became a standout release for the group, and cemented their place in indie-rock history.

Ultimately, it would serve as the group’s penultimate album, with The Difference Between Me and You Is That I’m Not on Fire arriving in 2004 ahead of their breakup the following year.

Across the last decade, mclusky have performed numerous reunion tours as mclusky* (to denote the absence of bassist John Chapple), with their last tour of the country taking place in January of 2020.

Now, with reported plans for a long-awaited new album, mclusky are set to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their second album with a national tour in early 2023.

Kicking off at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel on January 3rd, the group will visit Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, and Perth. Tickets to the group’s forthcoming tour are on sale now, with full details available below.
