It’s all bloody happening over in The Veronicas camp today, because not only have they come swinging into 2021 with a brand new track, but they’ve also dropped that they’re releasing not one but two albums and a bumper tour across Australia.

Sisters Jessica and Lida Origliasso just dropped ‘GODZILLA‘, the first track off their upcoming album also called GODZILLA, casually revealing the fact they’re dropping that one as well as HUMAN, the album they teased in July 2020.

Hooly dooly someone’s been BUSY.

Filled with grungy distorted guitars and bloody catchy hooks, GODZILLA (both the single and the album) sees the sisters teaming back up with Toby Gad, who helped pen their iconic hit Untouched way back in 2007. And we all know how quickly that song turned into an everlasting heater.

This new track is the first we’ve heard from The Veronicas since mid-2020, when they dropped their track, ‘Biting My Tongue‘, which they announced would find its home on the incoming HUMAN album.

The Veronicas have said the concept of the double-barrel album drop – with GODZILLA landing on May 28 and HUMAN dropping on July 2 – is the two sides of their personalities. On one hand is their human side, filled with vulnerability and emotive songwriting, where the other release sees their monstrous alter-egos let loose.

As well as the two albums this year, The Veronicas have also announced they’ll be heading out on their first big national tour in six years, kicking off on June 4 in Brisbane and running for 12 shows over a month.

Much like the duality of the albums, the shows at The Veronicas tour are set to be split into two, with each half of the performance showing the duality of the Origliasso sisters – their ability to strip it back and play something more emotional and heartfelt, but then also turn it up to 11, stomp on the distortion pedal and open up the fuckin pit.

Tickets for all the shows go on sale from 12pm on Friday, March 31 via their website, with a cheeky presale happening through Live Nation from 11am on Monday, March 29.
