Update: Joining Matt's New Zealand leg of tour is explosive indie-pop singer Mane. With a haunting and high energy live set, Mane is something that has to be seen to be fully believed.

Set to start in January, the upcoming UK and European Rainbow Valley Tour has already sold the sixteen date tour along with a second date added at London’s iconic Forum due to demand. This will be the first time Matt and the band have played headline shows since the Telluric Tour back in 2016.
For a decade, the multi-platinum-selling musician has been pushing his own boundaries, embracing a journey of self-discovery that’s seen him wrestle a few pre-conceptions and stare down his share of demons. With two ARIA Song of the Year awards and a #1 debut album behind him, Corby can genuinely lay claim to some hard-earned perspective.
Now we see a new chapter in Corby’s life with the release of his much anticipated second album Rainbow Valley, recorded in the idyllic surroundings of Byron Bay’s Music Farm studios. Lush, multi-textured and sparked by hints of both old soul and futuristic psychedelia, Rainbow Valley is, in Corby’s words “joyous music”, but it also has the depth and perspective of an artist who understands you can’t just take the good times for granted, you have to earn them.
The sparkling first single No Ordinary Life, the bare-bones ballad All Fired Up and current single Miracle Love have received widespread acclaim and give fans a taste of what to expect on Corby’s stunning new album.
