170818-major-leagues webTo launch their debut album ‘Good Love’, out now via Popfrenzy, Brisbane-based garage pop four-piece Major Leagues will be taking to our live stage amidst a national tour in August. The eight-date tour will see the band performing material around the country from their forthcoming debut album, produced by Jonathan Boulet.

Over 2013’s ‘Weird Season’ EP and 2016’s ‘Dream States’ EP, Major Leagues have become synonymous with their unique brand of DIY pop characterised by stunning vocal harmonies, crisp lo-fi production and nostalgic undertones. Singles such as ‘Endless Drain’, ‘Someone Sometime’, ‘Better Off’ and ‘Teen Mums’ have been championed by radio stations such triple j, triple j Unearthed, FBi 94.5FM, Triple R, RTRFM and 4ZZZ. ‘Silver Tides’ also caught the attention of iconic indie rock outfit The National who featured the song on their ‘Infinity Radio’ playlist.

Major Leagues have toured relentlessly in between releases, recently performing headline shows in Sydney and Brisbane. Prior to these dates the band have played alongside an exceptional lineup of international and local talent including Beach Fossils (USA), Alvvays (CAN), Wild Nothing (USA), Wye Oak (USA), San Cisco, The Preatures and DMA’s.’
