It’s a good day to be a Veronicas fan.
The Aussie sibling duo have today unveiled a bold new look, plans for a national tour – and not one but two new albums, to be released just weeks apart in the months to come.
Twins Lisa and Jess Origliasso, 36, will release a new album titled Godzilla on May 28, seven long years after their last album release. The duo dropped the album’s title track today, and it’s a raw, angsty track that harks back to some of their earliest hits:
They’ll release another new album five weeks after that, on July 2, titled Human, with a national tour taking place between the two album release dates.

Veronicas fans have had a long wait for a new album from the sisters, who have only released stand-alone singles in recent years amid personal upheavals including a public falling out, Jess’ split from fiance Kai Carlton and their mother’s ongoing battle with dementia.
But fans can now prepare for a bumper crop of new music, with the Godzilla vs. Human tour set to showcase the sisters’ new music alongside their previous hits. The show will be split into two parts – “GODZILLA will be a high energy introduction into the alter ego of the pop stars, and HUMAN will see Lisa and Jess strip it all back to their more vulnerable singer/songwriter roots,” a release states.
