Willaris. K is thrilled to announce the Alchemy EP Tour, his first full national headline tour of Australia. The tour follows the completely sold out east coast tour in May, selling out multiple shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. In between, he made his US debut at Coachella and debut European appearances to packed stages at Forbidden Fruit in Dublin, Watergate in Berlin and Kurschluss Warehouse in Slovenia.
The tour will come in celebration of the release of his highly anticipated debut EP Alchemy, released on 8 June via Soothsayer. ‘Risen’ is the fourth song to be taken off Willaris. K’s debut EP, a 7-track mini album that moves between thick industrial techno and sparse pensive melodic moments. The Alchemy EP features his previous singles – the debut single ‘Alchemy’ that saw Willaris. K break through with airplay on triple j, followed by ‘Dour Nights’ which was named by BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong as his Essential New Tune – as well as four new tracks, which together explore themes of transience, movement, darkness and currents. Together, the EP tracks have attracted over 2 million streams on Spotify, reached #2 on the iTunes Electronic Chart, with Willaris. K also being highlighted as Apple’s New Artist of the Week.
In 2017-18 McAllister played an unrivalled number of festival shows in Australia and NZ with over 25 live sets brimming with his trademark punk-influenced stage presence – all ahead of his international debuts and sold out Australian headline tour.
