Boo Seeka – Midnight Highlight Album Tour 2024
Come and lose yourself in the breathless new chapter of Boo Seeka, aka the hypnotic project driven by Australian singer-songwriter Ben “Boo” Gumbleton, with the talented artist today announcing a brand new album, MIDNIGHT HIGHLIGHT, set for release on Friday 19 January; and an extensive tour to follow in February and March next year.
Heralding a brand new album chapter last week with a fresh new single Let It Go, Boo Seeka served up a lustrous twinkle of smooth beats, summery electronics and compelling vocals. Also adding a calm yet powerful addition to the burgeoning Boo Seeka legacy, Let It Go effortlessly ignites an exciting sonic rebirth for Boo Seeka following the release of his sophomore album Between The Head & The Heart in 2022, with album #3, MIDNIGHT HIGHLIGHT, set to open the floodgates into the essence of the Boo Seeka creative psyche in 2024 - and the album’s accompanying tour is also set to offer equal moments of immersion, escapism and otherworldly bliss in a way only Boo Seeka can facilitate. Starting out on Friday 16 February in Maroochydore in Queensland, the MIDNIGHT HIGHLIGHT album tour will make its way to Brisbane, Sydney, Newcastle, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Rye, Belgrave, Adelaide, Hobart, Margaret River, Bunbury, Fremantle, Mackay and Townsville, before concluding on Saturday 23 March at Gilligans in Cairns.

Spurred by his pursuit to find and provoke clarity and happiness via music, Boo Seeka consistently builds his immersive sonic worlds around eclectic and invigorating foundations, with his freshly announced upcoming album set to expand further into unbridled territory, as Gumbleton explains, “MIDNIGHT HIGHLIGHT means a new chapter has been written for me personally, and I can’t wait to go share it with people who want to be part of it. I’m not saying we are reinventing the wheel here, but I don’t think anyone can say we sound exactly like any other artist, which is what I think any creative person should strive for. Each album (and each track to be honest) will change, and we are not going to put ourselves in a box for the years to come. What sounds good to us in that moment is what we write and record!”
Set to christen MIDNIGHT HIGHLIGHT across the country in 2024, fans can also expect moments of pure, exhilarating Boo Seeka magic next February and March, with the seasoned performer ready to return to the space that has simultaneously anchored and grown the Boo Seeka journey to date: performing live on stage alongside bandmate Jay Bainbridge. “Touring and playing live, I think, has always, and will always be, the biggest part and growth for Boo,” shares Gumbleton, “for two reasons: some people meditate, do yoga, surf etc. to feel grounded and reset. For us, it’s playing live. When we are off the road, we both get quite anxious and some anxiety, to be honest. So the more touring, the better. We always want to get better at our craft every time we go out on the road so that hopefully people can expect a better show than the last. It always makes us happy when we hear people tell us that this is their 10th, 15th etc. time seeing us, as it makes us feel like we always put on a good show. If someone comes for the first time, we just hope they become one of those people.”
Unforgettably emerging onto the Australian music landscape via the astral debut single Kingdom Leader back in 2015 and a debut album Never Too Soon in 2017, Boo Seeka continues to create and cultivate triumphs, witnessed most recently via the hotly-anticipated second full-length album Between The Head & The Heart in 2022, and a collab with acclaimed Aussie artist Hayden James on the track Free, also culminating in Boo Seeka appearing with James onstage at the iconic Coachella Festival in California last year. With millions of streams across his catalogue, Never Too Soon peaking at #8 on the ARIA Charts, three certified gold tracks and countless live performances under the Boo Seeka belt, including appearances at Splendour In The Grass and Beyond The Valley, three sold out headline runs and supporting the likes of Hayden James, MIDNIGHT HIGHLIGHT is set to add yet another dazzling high point in the Boo Seeka journey; and it will be truly something to savour for both Boo Seeka and fans across Australia, as he concludes, “Every show brings a new experience, and that is another reason we love being on the road. As an artist, I hate normality because it’s not inspiring to us. Because of this, we seriously look forward to each show ahead and look forward to what it will bring.”
