Kirin J Callinan "Bravado" Album Tour - Touring Nationally June.

Kirin J Callinan: search under guitarist, activist, nudist.

Walking the fine line between poseur and provocateur is what makes Kirin J Callinan such a fascinating artist. His music is berserk, brilliant, original. New music is pompous enough to cut through and engage , with the right balance of humanity to remain important. In 2017 sees Kirin touring the US with Pond, the UK with Mac Demarco, playing Splendour In The Grass - making his acting debut in acclaimed director Jane Campions "Top of the Lake" series 2, This follows a cycle of recording and touring internationally that includes opening for Tame Impala at the celebrated Hollywood Forever Cemetery shows, a glittering set at Paris Pitchfork festival, lifting the funkadelia across both the Mark Ronson album and live shows, and opening for Crowded House at the sold out Opera House forecourt shows at the invitation of Neil Finn. Kirin J Callinan is rightly regarded as one of Australia's most notorious artists.

Kirin J Callinan now confirms June 9th as the day for the world to hear his new album 'Bravado' in all its glory. The firebrand guitarist, Kirin has added euphoric EDM and unabashed humanity to his circa 2017 arsenal in delivering a defiantly euphoric second album!

Kirin J Callinan "Bravado" album forward by forward by Alex Cameron:
"It's 2017, and as a fresh tide of Australian acts froths across the world, charming international audiences with their rough approach to stage work, we have a major source to credit with that Australian brand of obscene confidence so frequently on display. Kirin J Callinan.
Kirin J Callinan, singer songwriter guitarist extraordinaire, has today announced the release of his new album, 'Bravado' on June 9, accompanied by a national tour, where fans will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in this stunning suite of new songs.

Consider this: Kirin J Callinan is an Australian Man. He's heat shimmer on a road and waves white against ocean blue. Built like an amateur boxer, long and strong, and dressed like a toreador. Tiger blood and a dick like a chair leg. He drinks salt water and holds eye contact after offering you a sip.

This is a man who could have settled for a life of patronized excess. Been a kept man on any continent on earth. Lying poolside, brown skin, slick with sun oil, a drink in hand, living like a prince.

And yet he's here, stood on a stage at midnight, surrounded by drunks. A fantasy creature existing firm in reality. And when he takes to his guitar, flanked by amplifiers, cables growing and spreading like vines from out around him, he produces sounds at once captivating and beautiful for their violence and creativity. It's hard to explain the feeling. The tension in your heart. The strange, sexy feeling you get from peeling a banana. Melodies make you wince at their pure creativity. Euro trash is another man's treasure. Beyond pastiche. Sonically out amongst the corpses and flying bullets; not stooped in the trenches. A man on the front line.

Kirin J Callinan is an apex predator. A butterfly. A grassfire. A beautiful baby boy wandered curious into the gun safe. You're listening to something very specific when you're hearing Kirin J express himself. And you're right to be wondering if this mania, this insanity, this total abandon exists within all of us. Makes you wonder if you've just missed out. If you're a coward for never trying. If you were ever on the field in the first place. Out there is a pendulum that swings recklessly between madness and delicate precision.
But what is recklessness without talent? What's a prisoner without his trade? A maniac without the voices in her head? What do we work with when the world puts too much space between us and our treasured visions of the future? Bravado."

Album released June 9th
