Two huge albums, one huge night!
One of Australia’s most influential bands, Something For Kate, have prepared a special treat for fans, heading out on their first national headline tour in four years to perform two of their albums in full this September and October.
That’s right, for one night only in each city, your pals Paul Dempsey, Stephanie Ashworth and Clint Hyndman will go ‘Double or Nothing’ – performing two special sets that will see them play both their third album, 2001’s Echolalia and their 2020 release Modern Medieval, alongside some of their greatest hits.
And, of course, Something For Kate have picked some of Australia’s most beautiful venues to take the tour to.

Released in June 2001, Echolalia is Something For Kate’s iconic third album. It debuted at #2 on the ARIA charts, earned seven ARIA nominations – including Best Album and Best Group – and saw the band named Channel [V] Artist of the Year and awarded triple j’s Album of the Year. The Age, Daily Telegraph, Sunday Telegraph, and Rolling Stone followed suite, rocketing Something For Kate to icon status and festival main stage staples nationwide.
Nineteen years on, November 2020 saw the band enter the Top 5 yet again with seventh album The Modern Medieval– their first release in eight years – proving that Something For Kate are still as strong as ever.
With a stunning back catalogue that includes singles like ‘Deja Vu’, ‘Monsters’, ‘Cigarettes and Suitcases’, and ‘Captain (Million Miles An Hour’, Something For Kate are entrenched in the Australian musical identity. They’ve amassed 750,000+ Gold and Platinum sales across seven albums, scored 11 ARIA nominations, as well as 14 entries in triple j’s Hottest 100.
‘Double or Nothing’ is a brand-new concert series that offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans see their favourite iconic Australian band play two very special sets over the course of one unique evening. It’s an evening that celebrates albums embedded in the hearts, minds and collective DNA of Australian audiences.
We’ve been unable to tour The Modern Medieval since its release last year and along with Echolalia turning 20 this year, we wanted to find a way to celebrate both albums so we decided to play two sets a night. We’ll be our own support band! One set will feature Echolalia in full and the other set will be made up of songs from the The Modern Medieval, plus a mix of other favourites. This will be a rare and unique Something for Kate tour. We can’t wait for these very special shows.’Something For Kate
