Tame Impala news

Last spring, I got to see the band for the first time and I must say it was a trip! Read the latest info below...

Tame Impala (Kevin Parker) has announced his fourth studio album The Slow Rush will be out Feb. 14 on Interscope. Parker release album track, “It Might Be Time,” which follows the previously released album track, “Borderline.” He also released a single, “Patience,” earlier this year.

The Slow Rush was recorded between Los Angeles and Parker’s studio in his hometown of Fremantle, Australia. The twelve tracks were recorded, produced and mixed by Parker. Fans can pre-order The Slow Rush at and all major retailers, or with a ticket purchase for the North American tour.

Digital pre-orders will receive the two album tracks instantly. The Slow Rush will also be printed in 4 heavyweight double disc vinyl formats - standard black, forest green (Limited Edition - all retailers), red/blue (indie retail exclusive) and splatter (Tame Impala webstore exclusive).

Earlier this year, Parker told the New York Times “A lot of the songs carry this idea of time passing, of seeing your life flash before your eyes, being able to see clearly your life from this point onwards. I’m being swept by this notion of time passing. There’s something really intoxicating about it.”

The album cover was created in collaboration with photographer Neil Krug and features a symbol of humanity all but swallowed whole by the surrounding environment, as though in the blink of an eye.

Next year, Tame Impala will play three shows in California followed by a date in Mexico City:

March 9 - Pechanga Arena - San Diego
March 10 - The Forum - Los Angeles
March 13 - Chase Center - San Francisco
March 19 - Foro Sol - Mexico City

Tickets for the U.S. dates go on sale Saturday, November 9 at 12pm PST and the Mexico City show is on sale Friday, Nov 8 at 11:00 AM local time.

In the last six months Tame Impala have headlined multiple major festivals including Coachella, Primavera, Lollapalooza, ACL and more. He debuted two new songs on Saturday Night Live and sold out arenas around the world including two nights at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
