The Veronicas have announced plans to release two new albums this year, entitled ‘GODZILLA’ and ‘HUMAN’.
The Origliasso sisters are set to drop ‘GODZILLA’ on May 28, following it up with ‘HUMAN’ on July 2.
Per a press release, the former will see The Veronicas assume their “public alter egos”, while the latter promises to explore their abilities as “vulnerable songwriters”.
The Veronicas have released the title track from ‘GODZILLA’ today (March 26) to celebrate the album announcements. Listen to it below:
‘GODZILLA’ marks the first time that Jessica and Lisa Origliasso have worked with writing partner, Toby Gad, since their 2007 hit ‘Untouched’.
“We all create without limitations, throwing our deepest ideas at each other and following it to wherever it takes us,” The Veronicas said of their songwriting process in a press statement.
“We focus heavily on the sonic layers of guitars and synth first. Toby allows us to melt genres together in a way we don’t get to with anyone else.
“We all create without any preconceived notion of what we are going to walk away with”.
In addition to their album announcements, The Veronicas have revealed plans to tour nationally for the first time in six years. The duo will play 12 cities around Australia this June.
Tickets are on sale at 12pm local time on March 31. Pre-sale begins on March 29.
