Gotye has today announced that Bertie Blackman and PVT will be the supports for his upcoming Australian tour, which will be his only Australian show this year.

Blackman will be releasing her fourth album Pope Innocent X in October, while trio PVT are enjoying the wave of four years of solid acclaim, which has seen them break in Europe as well as Australia.

Today Gotye - real name Wally De Backer - said, "I can't wait to start this tour. There are both more epic and more stripped-back things than I've attempted live before. The band is sounding hot and I'm so into some of the new visuals that have been made, it's exciting!"

Gotye has also trumped the internet by creating a 'YouTube Orchestra' by collating the best online covers of his Somebody That I Used To Know. Already going viral, watch that sucker here.
