The Veronicas Crank the Temperature on ‘Gothic Summer’: Stream It Now

Pour out a cold one, turn up the air-con: The VeronicasGothic Summer has arrived.

Spanning eight sweaty, high-energy pop-punk and party tunes, Gothic Summer is the Australian duo’s first international album release in ten years and the first through John Feldmann’s Big Noise Music Group.

Feldmann, singer and guitarist with Goldfinger, produced the new collection for which the Aussie act recruited a list of top-flight collaborators including Travis Barker, Sierra Deaton, Ryan Linville (Olivia Rodrigo, Chappell Roan), Zhone (Troye Sivan, Kim Petras) and Chris Collins (Royel Otis, Matt Corby).

“This time feels like a celebration of music, perspective and life,” the Veronicas tell Billboard via email. “Creating ‘Gothic Summer’ was an unexpected creative journey, and we can’t wait to bring the tour to the U.S.A. and reconnect with so many of our international fans.”

The Brisbane-raised act, identical twin sisters Lisa and Jessica Origliasso, cracked the ARIA top 10 with each of their previous five studio albums (their self-titled third studio album from 2014 is the last to get a full-scale international release).

The Veronicas have led the Australian singles chart several times, including 2007’s “Hook Me Up,” 2014’s “You Ruin Me,” and 2016’s “In My Blood.”

With 2007’s “Untouched” (via EngineRoom/Sire), the Veronicas enjoyed a U.S hit when it cruised into the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100.

In support of the new release, the Veronicas will embark on a 22-date U.S. headline tour from April 3 to May 5. The Gothic Summer trek will stop in San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake City, Denver, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Boston, New York City, Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and more, marking the group’s return to U.S. stages after almost a decade.

Gothic Summer houses the previously-released album opener “Perfect” and the neo-disco belter “Here to Dance.”
