Handsome Tours is elated to announce the return of beloved alt-rockers The Lemonheads to Australia this December.

Since they were formed in Boston, Mass, in T986 by Evan Dando, the family tree of The Lemonheads has many twisted tentacles anal tangential branches, and a host of one-liners etched into its bark. Anyone could be a Lemonhead but for how long who knows? Leastways they’ll be shoulder-to-shoulder with Evan throwing discordant chords against alt-country-tinged melodies, playing that light and dark card. Through their ranks passed Descendents, Blokes Babies, Dinosaur Jr. and members of Fuzzy.

In 2019, The Lemonheads returned with “Varshons 2”, their tenth studio album. Evan is at the helm with producer Matthew Cullen also on guitar and siren, Come and Codeine’s Chris Brakow supplying guitar and Willy Mason and Nina Violet sitting in. It’s another mixtape in a different kitchen placing the oddball and the unsung next to The Eagles and Nick Cave. Where else could you hear the music of Tom Morgan’s short-lived Givegoods, English curmudgeons The Bevis Frond and Lucinda Williams so seamlessly joined at the hip?

The Lemonheads will be making stops in Fremantle, Adelaide, Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne, as well as appearing at this year’s Fairgrounds Festival in Berry.
