‘In new album The Dream, they’ve created a masterpiece’ – Rolling Stone UK

Relaxer debuted on the ARIA charts at #4 with singles ‘Deadcrush‘ and ‘3WW‘, which features guest vocals from Ellie Rowsell of Wolf Alice. Their sophomore album This Is All Yours peaked on the ARIA charts at #2 and was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album, with singles ‘Hunger of the PineLeft Hand Free and Every Other Freckle all certified Gold in Australia. An Awesome Wave – the debut album from alt-J – peaked at #9 on the ARIA charts and is certified Platinum in Australia.

Formed in Leeds, England, the band consists of Joe Newman (guitar/lead vocals), Thom Sonny Green (drums) and Gus Unger-Hamilton (keyboards/vocals). Together the trio produce an intoxicating sound that earned them the 2012 British Mercury Prize.

‘As far as live performances go, there is a fine line between sounding like a studio band forced to play on stage, and an outfit capable of delivering total live magic. British indie band alt-J have constituted to blur that line, creating a live performance of incredible worth and pulsing rhythm.’ – Renowned For Sound 

‘Three years off their last public live performance and there is no sign that time away has hampered their ability to create magic.’ – Gigwise 

An Alt-J live show is both a treat to watch and hear. Every element is crafted to an incredibly high standard.’ – SYN

alt-J are one of the most successful British bands of the millennium. Joe Newman, Gus Unger-Hamilton and Thom Green have released three studio albums (four as of Friday 11 February) that, between them, have sold in excess of two million copies and their songs have been streamed over two and a half billion times.
