Swedish folkies First Aid Kit return to Australia in March 2012 to play a run of dates and promote their new album The Lion’s Roar which will be released in January. Last time they toured in 2010 we described their Oxford Art Factory as “The future of countrified folk is in good hands when authenticity can still be effortlessly achieved by the likes of First Aid Kit.”
