Sydney indie stars and ARIA Breakthrough Artist of the Year nominees Royel Otis are heading on a massive Australian tour in February and March 2024, playing intimate clubs and theatres across the country on their Pratts & Pain tour.

The duo – Otis Pavlovic and Royel Maddell – will get the party started in their hometown of Sydney on Friday, 16 February, before performing shows in Torquay, Melbourne, Canberra, Wollongong, Adelaide, Fremantle, Coffs Harbour, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Maroochydore and round out the run with a final date in Newcastle, New South Wales. The tour is presented by triple j and Frontier Touring.

Tickets to Royel Otis’ upcoming tour go on sale on Wednesday, 13 December, at noon local time via the Frontier Touring website. Frontier members can access pre-sale tickets on Monday, 11 December, also at noon. Sign up here for early access tickets.

Earlier this year, Royel Otis took us on a journey of sunny alternative pop music with their debut album, Sofa Kings. The album saw them take a progressive leap forward from the infectious melodies and quick-witted songwriting they are known for and land with cleverly composed gusto. 

Sofa Kings is our tribute to all the used, soiled, stained and discarded furniture that served us so well through all highs and lows. From soggy sheets to baggy beats, relaxing times to guitar lines… Sofa Kings have got it all,” Royel Otis said of the album. 

“With all songs written in the key of T minor 7. Let all those who wanna sprint to the finish line do their thing cause you wanna take it all in... Or just sit on the couch for a bit. You’re the master of your domain. Move at your own pace. Don’t second guess yourself; all will eventually see the glory that is you.”
