Cover shot – PLINI
Following a busy year of sold-out shows across Europe and North America, guitar prodigy Plini will return to Australian shores next March in celebration of his new EP Mirage, due out on Friday 1 December. Joining Plini and his band for the Mirage Tour will be New York-based international future jazz group Sungazer and the Polish progressive rock virtuoso Jakub Zytecki.
With five new tracks lying in wait on Mirage later this year, including the vibrant recent single Ember, Plini‘s forthcoming EP will also feature live strings, piano, oud and a guitar solo from Animals As Leaders’ Tosin Abasi alongside Plini‘s dexterous performance.
Springing back into action in 2022 following the pandemic years, Plini embarked upon back-to-back sold out headline tours of Australia, India and Scandinavia, festival appearances in Australia, UK, Germany and Portugal, and performing in some of Australia’s finest theatres supporting Northlane.
Consistently delivering mind-bending musicality from all angles, Plini has previously released two full length albums, 2016’s Handmade Cities and 2020’s Impulse Voices, as well as multiple EPs, singles and contributing credits with various other artists. Nominated for Live Guitarist of the Year in 2018 at the National Live Music Awards, Plini completed his biggest Australian tour production to date earlier in 2023, and has also previously toured alongside Sleep Token, Periphery and Tesseract.
Joining Plini in Australia in early 2024 will be American future jazz duo Sungazer. Consisting of YouTuber and bassist Adam Neely with drummer Shawn Crowder, Sungazer formed in 2014, welding their hard-hitting jazz fusion, 8-bit progressive rock and EDM into a sonic display that is equal parts exciting and unpredictable. Releasing their debut album Perihelion in 2021, Sungazer have previously toured alongside Plini, with a horde of North American, UK and European headline runs also under their belts.
Polish ambient shredder and producer Jakub Zytecki continues to prove himself as one of the leading luminaries in the world of progressive guitar music. Most recently releasing a brand new album in 2023, the sublime collection of songs that is Remind Me, Zytecki‘s work both as a solo artist and in band settings has endeared him to a global audience, with the talented guitarist recently touring in North America alongside Plini and Stargazer, as well as multiple festival appearances in his creative wake.
The sky and perhaps even the galaxy is barely the limit for Plini as he ventures into a brand new creative phase, and his 2024 Australian shows alongside Sungazer and Jakub Zytecki celebrating Mirage are guaranteed to dazzle you to your core.
