Codeine from New York City make their maiden voyage to Australia! Playing 4 strictly limited shows in support of their lost album Dessau, recorded in 1992 but only released last year, along with new, colored vinyl reissues of their three original Sub Pop records: Frigid Stars LP, Barely Real (EP), and The White Birch, all via the archival label Numero Group.

With the release of Frigid Stars LP (1990), Codeine almost single-handedly invented what would later become known as “slowcore.” Predating influential albums by kindred spirits Low and Duster by almost half a decade, Codeine’s slow, graceful songs support lyrics that are a disturbingly pure embodiment of depression. These will be Codeine‚Äôs first ever Australia shows, and follow sold-out shows in New York, LA, London, and Paris.
