Maggie Lindemann, the latest singer-songwriter to win over pop-punk and emo fans, is heading to Australia for the first time this May.

Performing at Melbourne's Prince Bandroom (Thursday, 4 May), The Triffid in Brisbane (Saturday, 6 May) and Crowbar in Sydney (Sunday, 7 May), it's good news for punters living on the East Coast, not-so-good for fans of the US artist residing in other states.

The Self Sabotage singer promises an "electric live show" to compliment her 2022 debut album, Suckerpunch

"When I was making this, I had those blows in my own life; when I listened to the album back from start to finish, I realized the entire thing was a sucker punch – for myself, for my fans – and I knew it had to be the title," Lindemann offered about writing the record in a statement. 

She added, "Writing is my therapy, my way to get what I'm feeling and thinking and going through out so that I can try to move on from it. With this album, I finally knew: ‘I need to let go of this stuff, so I'm just going to write about it.' I have control over my own life now. I have control over my music and what I want to say, what I want to do, and how I want to do it."

Lindemann has rapidly grown in recognition since the release of her first single, Pretty Girl, in 2016. She currently has over 5.5 million listeners on Spotify alone, 414 million views on YouTube, sold-out headline shows, and has opened shows for Sabrina Carpenter, Madison Beer and The Vamps. However, heavier music is in her sights, with Kellin Quinn from Sleeping With Sirens appearing on How Can You Do This to Me? and alternative artist Siiickbrain on Break Me! 

Lindemann is opening for Pvris this month throughout the UK and in Glasgow. She will also perform at the Slam Dunk festival in Hatfield and Leeds, where popular alternative/punk acts such as The Offspring, Underoath and Enter Shikari will take the stage.

Tickets to Lindemann's debut Australian shows go on sale this Friday at 10 am local time. If you're especially keen, Early Bird tickets will be sold tomorrow from 10 am (AEDT). All tickets can be found on Destroy All Lines.
