The Cat Empire's Harry James Angus has announced a run of east coast tour dates in support of his new single, Flicker

The jazz trumpeter/vocalist will play dates in Sydney and Melbourne this November to launch the track. 

Angus made headlines this week after the meme-worthy GWS Giants' theme tune, Big Big Sound, which he penned, went viral ahead of the 2019 AFL Grand Final. 

"I'm just happy the song has been accepted as a legit club song," Angus told Sydney Morning Herald.

"It's such a weird thing, in a way, to be a trumpet player, to be interested in old-fashioned music, and then suddenly find that some music you've made enter into the mainstream of Australian culture in a way that I'll probably never do with my actual hit songs from my band, if I ever have one again.

"I love that I just kind of wrote it and handballed it to the club and that's it. It's their song now. But all these people get to hear my music who probably wouldn't have otherwise.
