After releasing her debut album last September, Australia’s Romy Hoffman (a.k.a. Macromantics) is set to tour the Southwest supporting her Kill Rock Stars labelmates Deerhoof.
Macro's musical endeavors began at age 15, when she played as a guitarist in Ben Lee’s teen punk band Noise Addict. On the road, she became acquainted with hip-hop and thus began carving an individual image she's kept to date–one that maintains the DIY and punk aesthetics she was raised on while allowing her to pursue her chosen genre. This newly found medium lets her to explore her mantra of “love, truth, beauty, chaos and its ripe honesty.”
In the past, Macromantics toured as a supporting act for Sage Francis, Jean Grae, Aesop Rock, and Architecture in Helsinki. The eclecticism of her touring mates reflects the diversity of her album, even as her list of tours increases in both quantity and quality, as with Deerhoof.
