Set to kick off in Brisbane this July in support of their latest release, ‘Flip Phone Fantasy’, the Melbourne misfits will undertake a five-date run around the country, finishing up in their hometown at the start of August. Tickets are available here with full tour dates below.
Ahead of its release in March 2020, ‘Flip Phone Fantasy’ – the follow-up to 2017’s ‘The Rhapsody Tapes’ – saw Ocean Grove drop a handful of singles including ‘SUNNY’ and ‘SHIMMER’.
