Anthony Gonzalez, announces the highly anticipated details of his forthcomingfull-length album, ‘Junk’ out April 8 on Pod via Inertia.

‘Junk’ is the follow up to the critically acclaimed album ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’, that featured Grammy nominated single, “Midnight City,” that would go onto become a definite radio hit, receive Platinum Certification and was voted in the Top 5 in triple j’s Hottest 100.

While M83 albums has always combined genres in a nostalgic and provocative way – from shoegaze and ambient to synth-pop and ’90s alt-rock – for ‘Junk’, Gonzalez experiments adventurously with sounds and styles he’s never previously attempted in his music. “All my albums have layers of eclecticism to them, but with this album I wanted to take that even further,” he says.

Joining M83 on his Australian dates will be local wunderkind Japanese Wallpaper, who has seen extraordinary success since releasing his debut single “Breathe In featuring Wafia.” In the past few years, he has played the main stage at Falls Festival, delighted crowds at Splendour in the Grass and most recently at Laneway Festival when he performed with a full live band including the fan favourite “Forces feat Airling.”

Music lovers, prepare to lose yourselves to the sublime sounds of M83’s new album ‘Junk’ and enthralling live show this May; taking in Melbourne’s Forum Theatre on Tuesday 10th May, Brisbane’s The Tivoli on Saturday 14th May and Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on Monday 16th May.

‘Junk’ is out Friday, April 8 on Pod via Inertia, album pre-orders are available here:https://Inertia.lnk.to/Junk
