PEACHES!!!

Heating things up to rub Australia/New Zealand in 2016!

As Peaches starts her Euro tour in the UK this past week evoking “a remarkable show by perhaps the only artist who has the metaphorical balls to match a gigantic inflatable penis.” (www.theguardian.com/music/2016/nov/06/peaches-review-swg3-glasgow-rub), no better time to announce special guests, sold out shows… and latest video How You Like My Cut.

With the previous announcement of the MONA FOMA Australian exclusive performance of PEACHES CHRIST SUPERSTAR comes word that both Wellington and Auckland now have second shows after the first ones sold out adding to the already sold out Melbourne show and second show there. Dates and info below.

On top of this news we can now announce Peaches will be joined on all the shows by the Industrial R&B/OFF Pop! of Berlin based BLACK CRACKER – a prism somewhere between titanium foam and silk fibre, he brings together tenderness and resilience. Of his own, Unto himself! Come as U R!

Also playing Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane will be Melbourne’s electro duo HABITS with their sad goth party… and on the second Melbourne show the feminist contagion of sex clown BETTY GRUMBLE. Info and links on all below.

As Peach kicked off the UK tour last week the latest video for HOW YOU LIKE MY CUT went live. This video features choreography and a performance from Eisa Jocson, a Filipino dancer and visual artist who challenges gender norms and sexuality by combining her classical ballet training with contemporary dance forms such as pole dancing. Peaches elaborates on how the two met… “I first saw Eisa Jocson perform “Macho Dancer” as a much longer and more involved piece for a dance festival in Berlin. Eisa recreates the male exotic dancing that happens in the Philippines only by Filipino men performed in nightclubs primarily for the enjoyment of women. I was struck by how androgynous and delicate this gender specific dance is interpreted. I was lucky Eisa agreed to create a version for my song ‘How You Like My Cut’. This time there are no big cartoon pussies or naked bodies, and i do not even appear in one of my own videos for the first time. Here is a more quiet, sensual Peaches video. Another side, if you will.” Check it here: youtu.be/jhYF2qeMyRA

‘RUB’ is one of the best received albums of Peaches career with Pitchfork saying it “arrives at a moment when the world needs Peaches most”. Not only is she earning critical praise from press but she is also earning kudos from her peers in the entertainment world. In a feature on Peaches in Time Magazine, Amy Schumer says “Peaches is just the shit. She’s the bravest one of us out there,” in NY Times T Style Magazine, Laverne Cox says “Peaches is everything”. Listen here to her interview with Marc Maron on his WTF Podcast HERE  and her interview with Brett Easton Ellis HERE.

“Few musical provocateurs have more brazenly challenged audiences’ ideas of gender, sexuality and even time than Peaches.” – The New York Times.
