Pickle Darling's ace new sophomore album Cosmonaut has been reaping praise from here to Timbuktu, including such globally influential platforms as Bandcamp Daily, who enthused: "Their mastery of starry-eyed songcraft recalls mid-’60s Beach Boys or Harry Nilsson." Embarking on their first ever headline tour of Aotearoa with band this July, Ōtautahi  songwriter and producer Lukas Mayo has today revealed which musical pals will be joining Pickle Darling for their extensive run of album launch dates. Fellow Cantabrian Mousey will perform solo for five stonkin' shows and special guests throughout the country will also include Neive Strang, Fruit Juice Parade, Halcyon Birds, mini and Treenurse. Delve into our illuminating recent feature where Pickle Darling named their very excellent Top Ten Pickles HERE and secure your spot at the following dates...

“I am super excited to play these songs around New Zealand! I had to cancel my last tour so technically this is my first time doing a headline tour, ever. As well as the first time visiting some of these smaller towns!” - Pickle Darling
