The band released their latest album in April.

South Londoners Fat White Family have announced a string of east coast tour dates in celebration of their third studio album, Serf’s Up!.

The crew were previously announced for Wollongong’s Farmer & The Owl Festival. They join a lineup of Hot Chip, Alex Cameron, The Murlocs and Weyes Blood. Speaking to Beat earlier this year, frontman Lias Kaci Saoudi said putting together Serf’s Up! wasn’t without its challenges. The band had an complicated relationship with heroin and it was only in this album that things were on the mend.

“It’s been a long-running battle to get the band clean and off heroin, but the absence of that big brown cloud during the recording of this album meant that for the first time in years we were able to communicate with each other,” he said.

Check out Fat White Family’s tour dates below:

Thursday February 27 – The Zoo, Brisbane QLD

Friday February 28 – Factory Theatre, Sydney NSW

Sunday March 1 – Corner Hotel, Melbourne VIC

Tickets for Fat White Family’s tour go on sale Thursday November 19 via XIII Touring.
