THE VERONICAS release 1st International Album GOTHIC SUMMER

Iconic hitmaking sisters The Veronicas return with Gothic Summer, their first international album release in 10 years. After a much needed disconnect, Lisa and Jessica Origliasso soon found themselves in the throes of an unexpected 6th album. Gothic Summer was born. “Gothic Summer is about alternative realities, its more subconsciously motivated and metaphorical than our previous records,” said the duo on their latest release. “It’s a dark comedy, a lot like life – we laugh, so we don’t cry.” Produced by longtime collaborator, friend and Big Noise label-head John Feldmann, the album finds Jessie and Lisa confronting speculation and drama (“Here to Dance”), toxic obsession (“Detox”), the pressures of living in a social culture that is never satiated (“Perfect”) and more. To create their most adventurous project yet, The Veronicas also tapped a modern-day A-list roll call of pop/rock juggernauts including Travis Barker, Sierra Deaton, Ryan Linville (Olivia Rodrigo, Chappell Roan), Zhone (Troye Sivan, Kim Petras) and Chris Collins (Royal Otis, Matt Corby) who Jess and Lisa challenged to explore outside of each of the collaborators usual musical style. Available now via Big Noise Music Group, Gothic Summer marks a significant milestone for the duo.

Known for their dynamic vocals and fearless approach to songwriting, The Veronicas’ newest body of work pushes boundaries and challenges conventions. From dance floor anthems, to 60s & 70s surf rock influence, Gothic Summer showcases the duo’s versatility, evolution and enduring pop star power. The Veronicas first started feeding new album speculation in October 2023 when they released the fierce, melody driven anthem “Perfect.” The duo timed the release around their much-anticipated performance at the When We Were Young festival, which Forbes called “a perfect comeback.” Feb 9 th they dropped the 70s pop disco track “Here to Dance” and confirmed that they had a new album titled Gothic Summer coming. In addition to releasing their first international album in 10 years, The Veronicas will hit the road for a 22-date U.S. Headline Tour (marking their return to U.S. stages after almost a decade). The ‘Gothic Summer’ tour will run from April 3-May 5, with stops in San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake City, Denver, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Boston, New York City, Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and more.
