and… Action!

So we’re pretty busy. We’re writing tons of songs, demoing them and getting them really bang on. We’re also playing a lot, which feels good, and keeps it a little bit real. things can get kinda weird if you don’t play gigs for too long.

Some excellent stuff coming up anyway, check it out:

Bandito Folk @ Black Bear Lodge

Lou ReedBANDITO FOLK sets more than fire…

We’re playing the same night at The Black Bear with Bandito Folk..

On the back of some rather warm reception to their performances during the past few weeks with Dan Sultan and The Gin Club BANDITO FOLK grab the cashbox and run through the flames to stir up some more musical trouble. Up next for the bandits is another headline at Blackbear Lodge mid-April and their first trek to Toowoomba in early May… along with the release of a new video for third track on the The Embankment EP – INTO THE FIRE.

The Brisbane show will be complemented by special guests WE ALL WANT TO along with OLD PINES.

Sunday April 13th / 8.00 pm
Black Bear Lodge
– Brunswick St Mall, Fortitude Valley.

WE ARE SCIENTISTS

Lou ReedTWO “WE” bands on the same bill, spooky!

Indie rock roars from speakers and stereos worldwide incorporating thoughtful, thunderously epic elements but most importantly, infectious fizzes of sonic intimacy which make you want to stand up from your seat and dance like crazy. There is no mistaking the origin of this eargasmic delight. New York-based legends We Are Scientists are set to head to Australia for a series of shows which are guaranteed to put a smile on every punters face and shake the roof off venues across the country. This is a band guaranteed to blast out “indie dancefloor hits so supersonic that Richard Branson is trying to sell passenger tickets into space on them.” (NME)

Thursday 29th May
The Zoo
– Ann St, Fortitude Valley.

OK we’re out of bed

We have been busy writing, recording demos, eating Christmas pud and generally gadding about the place.

Starting late Feb we’re all gonna be gadding about together in the van – we have gigs booked. It’s really exciting. We’ll play you some of our new songs.

It’s been too long, we can’t wait to get out and see you all again!

A Band On Ship!

We’re playing a BOAT CRUISE! In good Old School Brisbane style, we will set sail up and down the river as the sun sets, blasting it out while 100 lucky punters try and drink as many beers as they can in 3 hours. That’s Aussie. That’s Brisbane. Make sure you get on board…

Also playing: Some Jerks.
**Tickets on sale soon! Limited to 100**

Departure point is the park by the Mowbray Park City Cat Terminal. (NOT the actual city cat terminal).

Streets of Your Town

August 12th sees the release of our brand new single and video, a cover of The Go-Betweens’ classic “Streets of Your Town”.

After playing it live at Take The Lead it was a pretty obvious choice for a great song to release. This really marks the end of our Come Up Invisible period, and the turning point into the era of what will be our next album. We’re already demo-ing new songs.. it’s exciting, nothing old whatsoever, no cupboard-clearing this time round, it’s new new new all the way.
