Adding to an appearance at Meredith Music Festival, Montero has announced headline dates in Sydney and Melbourne this December.

These shows cap off a massive year for Montero, who played Primavera Sound in June and has toured the UK and Europe twice: once last November supporting Mac DeMarco, and again for a string of headline dates this past February, to coincide with the release of his second record, Performer.

Acclaimed visual artist and bandleader Ben Montero was born and bred in Melbourne, but these days bases himself in Athens, Greece. His six-piece band comprises members of Greek psych-heads Acid Baby Jesus and Voyage Limpid Sound, and it is this Greek backing band that will accompany Ben to Australia in December.
