Tiny Ruins has announced a national tour in support of their upcoming album, Ceremony.

Hollie Fullbrook and co. will perform eight times in May, culminating in a hometown show at Hollywood Avondale on Saturday, May 27th (see full dates below). Tickets go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, March 15th at 9am local time. The pre-sale begins on Monday, March 13th at 9am local time.

The tour will follow the release of the indie folk band’s fourth studio album, Ceremony, on April 28th. It’s the eagerly-anticipated follow-up to 2019’s acclaimed Olympic Girls, which was a finalist for the prestigious Taite Music Prize.

Fullbrook certainly had a lot on her mind while writing her new album: “Ceremony goes deep into all the old and murky mysteries of what it means to be human – and sometimes it nearly goes under. Yet these songs also show how you can find the strength to swim from the shipwreck, push through the silt, surface into another new morning. Another new chance,” she explained.

To celebrate the tour announcement, Tiny Ruins shared a new single, “Dogs Dreaming”, a more bright and buoyant number than their previous pristine single, “Dorothy Bay”. The track was written on a solo expedition to the Āwhitu Peninsula, where Fullbrook surveyed an isolated lighthouse at dusk, freaking herself fout in the process.

Tiny Ruins’ Ceremony is out April 28th via Milk! Records (pre-save/pre-order here).
