RÜFÜS DU SOL are taking it back to where it all started for them—at least in the globally, commercially famous sense. When the Australian indie-dance act ventured out to Joshua Tree to write their third album, 2018’s Solace, it would mark the beginning of what would later be a double Grammy-nominated LP. The two day trip in California’s Mojave Desert would spark the beginning of “Lost My Mind,” an anthemic track that is considered their most anthemic records to date.
While the three lads later finished the album in their summer home studio in Venice, Solace marked their big break through. Spurring a two year album-accompanying tour, which included a double-header at the infamous Red Rocks, along with countless shows all over the world, they really had that humbling Joshua Tree experience to thank for it all.
Now RÜFÜS is paying their respects to the sacred place in their forthcoming live performance feature film, Live from Joshua Tree. The project initially began as an immersive, 45-minute live concert featuring hits from all three of RÜFÜS’ albums, including Bloom and Atlas, as well as a select few new songs. Now that the film is nearing the end of post-production, fans can mark their calendars for February 18 for the world premiere.
While the trio now officially call Southern California their home, RÜFÜS DU SOL are donating relentlessly to help with the wildfires in their native country. They recently donated $50,000 to Australia’s Rural Fire Service and will also host a fundraiser with San Diego-based promoter FNGRS CRSSD to benefit the RSPCA Bushfire Appeal.
The world premiere of Live from Joshua Tree will take place at Los Angeles’ Vista Theatre. Tickets will be available starting Friday, February 14, at 9am PT via Eventbrite.
