The Veronicas will crank up the heat for Gothic Summer, the pop duo’s first via Big Noise Music Group.

Featuring the previously released cuts “Perfect,” “Detox” and “Here to Dance,” Gothic Summer is due for release worldwide on March 22 via Big Noise Music Group, a specialist in alt-pop and rock, whose co-founder and A&R is John Feldmann, longtime collaborator and singer/guitarist with Goldfinger.


Feldmann produced the eight-track album, which boasts a long-list of collaborators including Travis Barker, Sierra Deaton, Ryan Linville (Olivia Rodrigo, Chappell Roan), Zhone (Troye Sivan, Kim Petras) and Chris Collins (Royel Otis, Matt Corby), all of whom “challenged the duo to explore their expansive musical range more than ever before,” reads a statement announcing the project.

The Brisbane pop duo, identical twin sisters Lisa and Jessica Origliasso, have released five studio albums, all of which cracked the ARIA top 10. The Veronicas have led the Australian singles chart several times, including 2007’s “Hook Me Up,” 2014’s “You Ruin Me,” and 2016’s “In My Blood.”

“Untouched” (via EngineRoom/Sire) provided the Veronicas with a U.S hit when it cruised into the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 following its release in 2007.

Combined streams from across their catalog is north of 900 million, say reps.

Speaking withBillboard following their signing with Big Noise in 2022, Jess remarked that they’re “excited to be the first female fronted signing to the label,” adding, “we felt they’re an amazing find for the Veronicas.”

On it, the siblings “embrace introspection and challenge societal pressures,” reads a statement, “shining a light on the truth beneath pop music’s shimmering surface”.

In support of Gothic Summer, the Veronicas will perform at Hello Sunshine Festival in Melbourne on March 2, before embarking on a 22-date U.S. headline tour, their first U.S. jaunt in almost a decade.
