Chet Faker is set to embark on an East Coast tour this October and November, playing his biggest venues to date. Taking place in iconic and much-loved venues, Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl and Brisbane’s Riverstage, the Built on Live Tour will have Chet performing an all-new show, featuring an expanded band with guests, never before performed live songs, and more than a few surprises along the way.

It will be a final celebration of his multi-platinum, chart-topping album Built on Glass. Chet completely sold out his entire 13-date tour earlier this year including a remarkable two Hordern Pavilions and five Palais Theatres. The 'Built on Live’ Tour, the last time Chet will be on home soil in quite a while, is set to be just as popular.

Chet says:

“I’ve played over 200 shows since the album came out, and during that time the songs and the show itself has evolved so much further beyond the recordings.  This tour is a last chance to put everything I’ve learned over the last few years into practice and see the songs played in their full capacity before I put the album to rest."

To round out the Built on Glass campaign, Chet today premiered a previously unreleased track ‘Bend’ on triple j.  Written during the Built on Glass recording period, Chet explains the track's history:

“'Bend' was on Built on Glass until the last minute. I recorded it in 2013 and kinda wanted to put it out since. It's always felt like a part of Built on Glass and since this tour is the sort of live "director’s cut" of the album it made sense to release this before it lost context."

The track will be released on 19 June via Future Classic/Opulent in Australia.

Chet Faker took out five wins from nine nominations at the 2014 ARIA Awards including ‘Best Male Artist’, ‘Best Independent Release’, ‘Producer of the Year’, ‘Engineer of the Year’ (Eric J Dubowsky) and ‘Best Artwork’ (Tin&Ed) for his debut LP Built on Glass (Future Classic).  He also picked up the J Award for 'Australian Album of the Year’, topped the station’s Hottest 100 with ’Talk Is Cheap' and scored  the #1 spot on the listener-voted triple j Best of 2014 Top Ten Album poll, amongst an array of achievements.

Chet’s hard work internationally is paying off too. He made well-publicised performances on Jimmy Kimmel and Ellen and has sold out all his headline shows this year, including three Terminal 5s (NYC), two Club Nokias (LA), three Trianons (Paris) and is set to play Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, and FYF Fest (amongst others) over the northern hemisphere summer.  Check out the shining press reviews below.
