Hello Melbourne, looking forward to getting sweaty with you again. Some intimate duo shows in this run, so slightly less sweat than usual is entirely possible. Tickets for the Classic Cinemas Elstenrwick on sale now.
The folks at Guitar Bros. have sorted a fine line-up for the annual Brisbane Blues and Rhythm Festival on Nov 30, with with all proceeds going to The Brisbane Youth Service who help homeless & disadvantaged young people in South East Queensland.
Kicking off early in the arvo at Chardon's Corner Hotel, Annerley with Vix & The Slick Chix, The Hipshooters, Dezzie D & The Stingrayz, Craig Claxton & The Barbarians feat Tim Gaze, Blues Arcadia - YEW! - and The Steve Edmonds Band (from Sydney).
Yewmundi-bound for good times at the inaugural Offbeat Festival with the added bonus of the many tasty beverages that they brew in-house at the Eumundi Imperial Brewery. We discovered their (h)IPA last time we played there on the Carnival Of Fools tour. Bloody delicious!
Depression. You're not alone - particularly if you're a musician.
The constant battles with creativity, addictions, sleep deprivation and one's own inner darkness can be overwhelming. Admitting you need help is the first step on a long road but often the SSRI meds designed to help come with their own issues, stigmas and dangers.
"The Ballad of Sir Tralyne" is an expression of our experiences with anti-depressants and psychiatric treatment over the years... While this vid may be tongue-in-cheek, we're seriously fortunate to have gotten help with our individual mental health struggles.
And please: if you think you might need help, there are literally dozens of websites, helplines, and GPs who are waiting to hear from you, including Beyond Blue: visit www.beyondblue.org.au/getsupport or call 1300 22 4636. Don't wait.
Directed, filmed and produced by Tobias Broughton, Horse and Duke Productions. Additional cameras by Brendan Watterson and Nathan Byrnes. Big thanks to Alannah for letting us...
Back for some more rootinest-tootinest times at Doo-Bop Jazz Bar in Brisbane on Aug 10 - with the King biscuit Horns on the Gatsby Room stage for more sass and swing than you can shake a stick at. Tickets from the venue, link on our Live page or via Facebook.
Carnival Of Fools remains at the top of the ABARAC charts for the second month in a row. One of our ambitions when releasing this record was to get it around the country as far as possible, and we are so grateful to our friends at Australian Community Radio for their support.
Big love to all the presenters who contribute to these charts and keep bringing our music to the people!
When we first walked into the Concert Hall at Brisbane's beautiful Old Museum building, there was a small feeling that we might have bitten off a bit more than we could chew... But holy moley, you folks came through and we gave that big old room one of the sweatiest, most raucous nights it has ever seen.
Our pal Tobias Broughton captures all the feels from the night in this vid - heartfelt thanks to Alannah and all the Old Museum crew for the love shown to us.
Off it goes into the big bad world, this little record of ours... Carnival Of Fools has it's official release today, and we couldn't be prouder of what we have made. It's been a long road with many dangerous curves, but now it's yours and we hope you love it too. See you on the road!
You can now get your hands on three tracks from our new album when you pre-order it via our Bandcamp page prior to official release on March 01! Lots of lovely new merch items to get excited about too, including this little number from well-known fashion guru Harvey Blues!
We are glad to announce that our new album is coming out on March 01!!!
It's been a long process, with plenty of bumps in the road, but it's finally here and we couldn't be prouder. We're very excited to be touring around the country in the next few months to celebrate, and we look forward to seeing you out there!
