Last year, Seth Sentry performed fifty shows in Australia alone, as well as European and UK dates immediately after. Evidently not one who enjoy’s life’s simplest pleasures, such as sleep, relaxation and binging on Netflix, he’s already back with a huge new tour, the 1969 Campaign Trail. The tour is kicking off on June 30 in Ipswich, running through to August 13, where he will play his final show in Margaret River, WA.
Joining Seth on tour is running mate Remi, who not only features on Sentry’s track Nobody Like Me, but recently dropped our favourite Aus hip-hop track of 2016 so far, For Good ft. Sampa The Great.
Seth’s 2015 album Strange New Past was easily one of the best Australian hip-hop releases of last year (for more, read our review), and his live shows are unmatched. The new dates are in support of his new single 1969, the fourth to be released from Strange New Past.
In addition to the tour announcement comes the premiere of the video clip for 1969, a journey through late 60s Americana, including Sentry as a president who lets loose once the cameras aren’t rolling, later transforming into a variety show-style singer. Check it out:
Pre-sale tickets will be available from April 26, with general public sales the following day. Click here for more details.
