Doors open 7pm

Diamond-selling British band Glass Animals today announce an intimate pop-up show at Sydney’s Liberty Hall this Thursday 9 May. The Australian exclusive follows instant sell-out pop-ups in California and Mexico City earlier this year held in support of upcoming fourth studio album I Love You So F***ing Much out July 19.

Tickets to this one-off show go on sale today, Tuesday 7 May at 10am.



I Love You So F***ing Much, is the follow-up to 2020’s critically revered Dreamland, which sold over 12M copies globally and gave life to ‘Heat Waves’, the record-breaking song that became the biggest international hit from a British band in almost 30 years. It was the first song to reach #1 with a single writer and producer since Pharell’s ‘Happy,’ and led to the pop world’s biggest acts, including Florence Welch, all wanting to work with Glass Animals frontman, songwriter and producer, Dave Bayley. But the birth of I Love You So F***ing Much was an existential crisis. Dave found himself struggling to make sense of this newfound global stardom, having watched it all happen while the world was in lockdown.

“Life can change dramatically, but sometimes you aren’t able to change as quickly on a personal level. You end up feeling like a spectator. And then you are asked and expected to be a certain type of person, a different person. But…I wasn’t sure how. It confused me to the point of not knowing who I was or if anything was real.”

It took being stranded on a cliff in a wooden house on stilts during one of California’s biggest storms in history to push that feeling into a full existential crisis. In forced isolation, watching trees tumble down mountains and assuming “death was coming,” Dave began asking questions of himself, of the universe and of the human experience: namely, love. As he came to accept himself as an introvert, Dave realised that “human connection and the love between us is much bigger, more important, and more complex than anything else”. ‘Creatures in Heaven’ is the sublime first glimpse into 10 intimate love stories set against the backdrop of the universe.

Full of 70s analogue synths and a vast space-scale of production, “Creatures in Heaven” tackles the moment: Are you here in the moment? Be in the moment. “It’s about a moment in time, be it a split second or a year or whatever, having the capacity to be enormously formative and life-changing. Even if it is over. Or if it doesn’t go as planned. Or if it dies too soon. It is still fucking beautiful. The
love and care and the feeling in that moment lives forever. It never really dies. If that’s how you
choose to see it,” says Dave.

Finding sense in that chaos is where I Love You So F***ing Much begins. Join the love space odyssey today.
