Echolalia – number two on ARIA albums chart

Melbourne trio, Something For Kate have debuted their third album, “Echolalia” at number two on Australia’s national ARIA albums chart.

Propelled by the hit single “Monsters”, “Echolalia” beat all comers this week, apart from the film soundtrack, Moulin Rouge. So strong has the enthusiasm of fans been that even SFK’s first album, “Elsewhere For Eight Minutes”, returned to the charts.

On the ARIA Alternative chart it was a Something For Kate trifecta, with “Echolalia” at number one, “Elsewhere For Eight Minutes” at twelve and the band’s sophomore long-player, “Beautiful Sharks” at sixteen.

The next step for Something For Kate is the aptly titled Echo-la-la-lia Tour, which commences in August.

Following on from the sold-out Mythology tour that wound its way across Australia throughout May, The Echo-la-la-lia Tour will kick off in Canberra on August 8 and conclude in Brisbane on the 31st of the month. In between the tour will take in all mainland state capitals and a couple of key regional centres.

Tickets for The Echo-la-la-lia Tour will be on sale from July 2 and special guests for each date will soon be announced.
