The Veronicas Set To Release Their First International Album In 10 Years ‘Gothic Summer’

Fresh off the heels of their “Here To Dance” single drop last week, hitmaking sisters The Veronicas officially announced that Gothic Summer, their first international album in 10 years, will be released worldwide on March 22 via Big Noise Music Group.

Jessica and Lisa Origliasso of The Veronicas first started feeding new album speculation in October 2023 when they released the fierce, melody driven anthem “Perfect.” The duo timed the release around their much-anticipated performance at the When We Were Young festival, which Forbes called “a perfect comeback.” In December, they dropped the ska-pop-punk fusion “Detox” and confirmed that they had a new album titled Gothic Summer coming in March 2024.

After a much needed disconnect, the passion to create again came knocking and Gothic Summer was born. Lisa and Jessica found themselves with a myriad of stories to explore: confronting speculation and drama (“Here to Dance”), toxic obsession (“Detox”), the pressures of living in a social culture that is never satiated (“Perfect”) and more. The 8-track album was produced by longtime collaborator, friend and Big Noise label-head John Feldmann, alongside a modern-day roll call of A-list pop/rock juggernauts including Travis Barker, Sierra Deaton, Ryan Linville (Olivia Rodrigo, Chappell Roan), Zhone (Troye Sivan, Kim Petras) and Chris Collins (Royal Otis, Matt Corby) who all challenged the duo to explore their expansive musical range more than ever before.

In addition to releasing new music, The Veronicas will hit the road for a 22-date U.S. Headline Tour (marking their return to U.S. stages after almost a decade).The ‘Gothic Summer’ tour will run from April 3-May 5, with stops in San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, Salt Lake City, Denver, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Boston, New York City, Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles and more.

Named “the ultimate pop-punk duo of the mid-aughts” by Nylon, The Veronicas have long been recognized for their famed blueprint in songwriting and career of multi-platinum studio albums which expertly balance vulnerability with a bit of rebellion. The hitmaking duo first emerged in 2005 with their now 4x ARIA-certified platinum, debut album The Secret Life of…, which featured hit singles such as “4ever” and” Everything I’m Not.” In 2007, they released their critically acclaimed, sophomore album Hook Me Up, which lauded their first international top-ten hit “Untouched.” After a hiatus, the duo returned with their self-titled third studio album in 2014. In 2024, the duo will unveil their newest full-length body of work. Titled Gothic Summer, the long-awaited project, which is their first international release in 10 years, finds the duo centered in their creativity as they embrace introspection and challenge societal pressures, shining a light on the truth beneath pop music’s shimmering surface.
