Neko Case has announced her first tour of Australia and New Zealand since 2010 with a signature headline performance also at the iconic Sydney Opera House and various special events and headline performances and will run from February 27th to March 14th 2014.
Anti- released Neko Case’s first album in over four years, The Worse Things Get, The Harder I Fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You to critical acclaim in September this year.
“My brain wilderness is more dense and dangerous than I thought,” says Case. “It was an embarrassing and hilarious march, but I now feel like a more streamlined being. It’s a good feeling. Four years of my life took ten years hostage, then gave me back twelve.”
