    Multi-platinum recording artist Gotye announced his biggest tour of North America…ever!

    Special guests on the tour include acclaimed Australian singer/songwriter Missy Higgins, Brooklyn buzz band Chairlift and indie pop outfit Givers. South African born multi-instrumentalist Jonti will open most dates with cult hero Zammuto (ex-The Books) playing first at some shows. Kimbra - who featured on Gotye's chart topping song "Somebody That I Used To Know" - will make a one off appearance on the Dallas date.

    Missy Higgins - what a great last name.

    It was also announced that Gotye will finally release his cult album Like Drawing Blood on CD and vinyl for the first time in the US through Fairfax/Universal Republic Records this July; it is available digitally now. The album, originally released in Australia in 2006, is the album that first put Gotye on the map. In his homeland it was the ultimate indie 'word of mouth' project; eventually going platinum without ever making the top 40. It eventually earned Gotye the Australian equivalent of a Grammy.

    Next month, fans will get another bonus release from Gotye – ten remixes of the song that changed everything for him - "Somebody That I Used To Know" [Featuring Kimbra] - from his most recent album Making Mirrors (Fairfax/Universal Republic Records). The bundle, available June 8 via iTunes, will feature remixes by DJ Tiësto, Adrock, 4FRNT, Gang Colours, M-Phazes, and many more; full track list below! There are over 1,000 unapproved remixes of this song scattered across the Internet so this release collects most of Gotye's favorite versions in one place.
