To complement the release of the single, the band are heading out on a national tour, also kicking off on Friday. The tour includes two very special shows with The Rolling Stones.

In the past decade, there’s been a dynamic shift in the way the music industry works. With more music based reality television shows taking the primetime slot, and contestants being handed record deals like they’re going out of fashion, we’ve seen the indie bands being placed on the back burner – some going bust, some barely hanging on. So one question remains: Whats the key to an indie band staying afloat in a world dominated by generic, autotuned, reality show produced popstars?
With a change in the line-up consisting of two new members joining the team and a brief stint with a side project called French Style Furs, Long Beach indie-soul rockers Cold War Kids return to the fold with their fifth album release, ‘Hold My Home’.

Folk rock, or folk music in general, has a lovely and delicate way of popping up every now and then, pushing aside the likes of Katy Perry, Macklemore or other popular mainstream artists and taking a place high on many music charts around the world. And there is no denying that when a folk song makes its way there, that people get on board with it. Case in point, ‘Little Lion Man’ by Mumford & Sons, ‘Skinny Love’ by Bon Iver, or ‘Ho Hey’ by The Lumineers etc. I’ve made my point…
Andrew Davie, Joey Haynes and Kevin Jones are three gentlemen who are likely to join the ranks of their folk music peers, as their band, Bear’s Den, release their debut album in October, ‘Islands’.

The Newcastle Panthers auditorium was full of young eager fans on Friday night ready to rock out with Reece Mastin.
Supporting Reece is three piece outfit “The Kin”. This band is solid and entertaining, the fact the drummer does not use sticks, they have no bass and the band opted to move the show to the floor which looked more like a religious chant than a concert only added to the night.

Review by Scott Singh.
The night was young and many punters needed a musical fix, one that would take them to their highest highs and in the next minute bring them back to earth. Luckily The Enmore Theatre was housing a trio of musical talents that could perform such an act.
