In addition to his previously announced Melbourne Festival performance, Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore has announced additional tour dates across Australia.
Moore formed the highly influential Sonic Youth with Lee Ranaldo and Kim Gordon in 1981, with the seminal New York based band going on to release sixteen studio albums, including groundbreaking records such as Daydream Nation and Goo.
Moore will tour the country this October, performing tracks from his latest album, Demolished Thoughts, and his solo back catalogue. 2011's Demolished Thoughts, an intensely personal record, was produced by longtime friend Beck Hansen.
