Troye Sivan arrives at the Australian premiere of 'Paper Towns' at Miranda Westfield on July 5, 2015 in Sydney, Australia. 

Rising Australian pop craftsman Troye Sivan will visit the U.S. next month for his first live dates in the market. The precocious producer has announced eight all-ages shows starting Oct. 15 at Neumos in Seattle, before visiting San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, Minneapolis, Chicago, Washington, and wrapping-up Nov. 4 at Le Poisson Rouge in New York.

A rep for Sivan says he’ll play music from his hit EP Wild and premiere new material on the dates, and international gigs will be announced in due course. Expect him to perform the Wild track "Fools," for which he’s just dropped the official video. Directed by Tim Mattia and produced by Brandon Bonfiglio at London Alley, "Fools" is the second installment in the so called “Blue Neighborhood Trilogy” which explores themes of young love, self-identity, coming-of-age and acceptance.

“The video for ‘Wild’ was all about innocence and naivety. ‘Fools’ is about that moment when that naivety catches up to you,” comments Sivan in a statement. Watch the clip below.

The news comes on the back of an impressive international performance for Wild, which opened at No. 1 in Australia and No. 5 in the U.K. and U.S., where it started with 50,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending Sept. 10, according to Nielsen Music.

Wild enjoyed received social media praise from superstars Sam Smith and Taylor Swift and is the follow-up to Sivan’s debut Capitol Records EP, TRXYE, which also debuted and peaked at No. 5 a little over a year ago on the Billboard 200, shifting 30,000 copies in its first week. 

Sivan recently told Billboard his U.S. achievement was “a little insane, to be honest.”
