Come April, Kevin Parker is preparing to take his Tame Impala out and about on their biggest local tour yet.

It will come following the band’s new album, The Slow Rush, which is set to drop on February 14. Pre-orders are now open at JB Hi-Fi.

Being an absolute star, Parker will be giving a very generous donation of $300k in aid of bushfire relief efforts.

“I’ve been hanging out to tour Australia for a long time now so I’m super excited to be able to finally be able to announce,” he says. “In the past few weeks I’ve been devastated to see what’s been happening with the fires at home and we want to do our bit to help, so we’re going to be donating $AUD300,000 to bushfire relief charities.

“We’ve all seen so many generous donations coming in from all around the world, which is amazing. We’re still working through exactly where the dollars will go but I want to ensure that no charity in need during this time is overlooked and that our contribution is helpful for both human and wildlife victims, as well being used actively in climate change research and bushfire prevention.”

The tour will see Tame Impala supported by Texan instrumental three-piece Khruangbin. Here are the initial dates:
