Lee Ranaldo (Sonic Youth)
Fans of iconic alternative rock band Sonic Youth take note; founding member and guitarist LEE RANALDO is heading to our shores with his band for two exclusive shows in Brisbane and Sydney.
These performances see Ranaldo taking the stage with band mates and friends, Alan Licht and Steve Shelley.
The highly acclaimed artist will be touring off the back of his new album Between the Times and the Tides (out now through Remote Control): ‘A wealth of rock gems that shine with a warm-hearted, Neil Young-like intensity. Those wanting clangour and dissonance will be disappointed, but everyone else will be pleasantly surprised.’ – NME
‘Ranaldo’s melodies linger like thunder, strong enough to make an impression but letting the instrumental lightning do the stunning.’ – Consequence of Sound.
Joined by an all-star cast including Nels Cline, Alan Licht, John Medeski, bassist Irwin Menken and long-time associate Steve Shelley, the album is equal parts smart, confident and loose in a manner that recalls some of the best rock ’n’ roll… yet still sounds like a fantastic new style.
