Armed with one of the most powerful voices in rock ‘n’ roll, killer songwriting hooks and an unbeatable stage presence, Nic Cester has sold six million albums over the past 10 years with incendiary Melbourne world conquerors Jet.

Now, Cester is thrilled to introduce ‘Psichebello’ – the first single from his forthcoming debut solo album Sugar Rush, released on Friday 3 November via Bloodlines, the new entity from Melbourne’s Mushroom Group.

Produced by Jim Abbiss (Adele, Arctic Monkeys, Queens Of The Stone Age) and recorded in Milan’s legendary Officine Mecchaniche studios and George Martin’s Air Studios in London with members of cinematic rock’n’roll band Calibro 35 (whose work has been sampled on Compton by Dr Dre and ‘Picasso Baby’ by Jay Z), Sugar Rush is a labour of love, a radical departure and a hell of a record.

“Like most of the songs on the album I was enjoying flirting with different genres and then spinning them into something else. ‘Psichebello’ is the most psychedelic track on the album and the moment that highlights the abilities of the amazing Italian musicians who I had the pleasure to record with.”

Cester will return to Sydney and Melbourne in late Oct/early Nov for two exclusive launch shows, bringing his unmissable, all-Italian live touring band – the Milano Elettrica – along with him. With recent gigs supporting Paul Weller and Kasabian, these dates will be something special. Tickets on sale now:

Tue 31 Oct:         Leadbelly | 42 King St, Newtown, NSW                     (18+)
Thu 2 Nov:        Memo Music Hall | 88 Acland St, St Kilda, VIC         (18+)

Expect more news from Cester soon!
