January 7, 2019

Get ready to melt into a puddle of warm psychedelic guitar riffs ripping from the Coachella mainstage this year. Tame Impala is taking over.

Honestly, what sounds better than watching the desert sunset on a polo field to the chants of Kevin Parker?

While the band has not released new music in 4 years, they cryptically promised: “new sounds” with the drop of the Coachella lineup on their Instagram page. What this means, we don’t know.

Parker told Matt Wilkinson of Beats 1 in July that he would “be very disappointed” if the band didn’t have a new album by summer.

That being said, Parker confessed in the same interview that he does not like to play unreleased songs live.

“I just like the first time people hear it to be kind of the, recorded glory, you know? Like the premeditated thing that I’ve spent two years on rather than us just being half-drunk bashing it out on stage, hitting clanger notes and that,” Parke told Matt Wilkinson.

Hmmm… interesting. What does this mathematical equation spell for the Tame Impala-loving-Coachella goer?

Coachella starts Friday, April 12th. Tame Impala takes the mainstage Saturday, April 13 & 20. Alt 949 is giving you a chance to win your way in to all the fun.
