BABY ANIMALS
“WISH YOU WERE HER” TOUR 2009

balivepromoshotap09 Australian Rocker Suze DeMarchi, returns Down Under in April for the “Wish U Were Her” Tour…..

Suze DeMarchi returns to Australia for a slew of shows and some new material to unleash on the Australian public.

Suze says – “I think that a relevant quote for the story of my life would be “Time Flies”!!!
It’s been a year since we did our last shows and a year that proved to be really creative but also a reminder of how geography affects everything!! Dave and I have been plowing ahead with work on new songs.

What we really love to do is write and perform and since my life has taken me far away, across the seas, to the desert that is Los Angeles, we have to get it when we can!!!
CANNOT wait to play again! April… All of it…somewhere near you…. get your boots on…. Heaps” – Suze

The Baby Animals need no introduction as one of Australia’s best rock bands. Continue reading

THE INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS TOUR

It’s a coincidence that three of the artists recently singled out by triplejunearthed.com name-check geographical places in their titles; their position as some of the country’s best new talent is not.

Traversing the Eastern states in April 2009, the three bands will co-headline a tour that sees them perform in many places for the first time.

Ben Kweller @ The Zoo, Brisbane 9th April 2009

Ben Kweller returns to tour Australia in April in support of his new album Changing Horses, released through Shock Records.

The album is his fourth full-length and was produced by Kweller and recorded mostly in Austin, TX, where he and his family recently re-located.

benkweller1

The title is meaningful as it represents a sea change for the 27-year-old Texan-bred musician. Beginning with his first record, Sha Sha, released in 2002, Kweller’s albums have always been stylistically restless, moving from indie rock to ballads to anti-folk to melodic rock, often from song to song.

Dukes Of Windsor – Runaway Single Tour – March 2009

dukes-of-windsor-low-res After the success of their singles The Others, It’s A War, and Get It, Dukes Of Windsor will be getting back in the van in 2009 for a national tour to support upcoming single Runaway. Taken from the Dukes’ major label debut Minus, Runaway reflects a sense of escapism, set amongst flowing synth textures, punchy bass-lines, an insistent rhythm and infectious, soaring choruses.

Leonard Cohen Australian Tour 2009

leonard-cohen

“He is our Shelley; he is our Lord Byron!” – Bono

Leonard Cohen was the first artist I discovered by myself. He is the symbol of my musical independence. The sadness of Cohen was inspiring; it gave me a lot of energy. I always remember all this when someone says that my records are morbid or depressing.” – Nick Cave

“I tell you who I also think is wonderful is a chap called Leonard Cohen. Do you know him? He’s remarkable. I mean, the orchestration is fantastic and the words, the lyrics and everything, he’s a remarkable man.” – Prince Charles

“Give me a Leonard Cohen afterworld/ so I can sigh eternally.” – Nirvana, “Pennyroyal Tea”

The Frontier Touring Company and Roundhouse Entertainment are honoured to present the legendary Mr Leonard Cohen in his first Australian concert tour in almost a quarter of a century. The tour will include a series of indoor arena concerts plus a day on the green winery shows.

The Streets “Everything Is Borrowed ”Australian Tour

Hailed as the ‘voice of a generation’, Mike Skinner’s The Streets are revered by music critics and fans alike. The first time people heard The Streets’ Mercury nominated album Original Pirate Material, they couldn’t decide on whether the person making the music was black or white, from London or the Midlands, deadly serious or a total joker.

These days The Mercury Prize winner and Brit Award nominee has been described as one of the most authentic voices of British youth for many years.

The Streets have made the cultural crossover from the small UK Garage music and pirate radio scene to the mainstream becoming equally as important to the charts as they are to the indie kids.

With a brand new album, Everything Is Borrowed (September 2008) tucked under their belts, The Streets return to Australia to tour in 2009.

The Waifs Australian Tour Jan-Feb 2009

The Waifs Australian Tour With Special Guests Jez Mead/ Mama Kin

The Waifs

Last year The Waifs were part of the huge Union Of Soul WA tour with the John Butler Trio, this year they return to headline their own series of concerts over the summer. In WA they will be joined by America’s Independent sweetheart, Ani Di Franco and new WA act Mama Kin and for the rest of the country, old friend and fellow independent road warrior, Jez Mead.

 

The Waifs have been one of West Australia’s most loved and appreciated bands over their 20 year history. Building their fan base the hard way, playing every corner of the country, earning respect of peers and fans alike for their tenacity and drive to do things their own way.

From the back streets of sleepy towns in WA, to an internationally loved, multiple ARIA Award winning multiple platinum selling act, (their latest release Sun Dirt Water now about to go platinum), The Waifs have paved the way for Australian independent artists to be able to forge successful careers outside of the major label rules.


 

Since they last took to the stage on home soil, The Waifs have been busy touring through Europe and America to support the release of Sun Dirt Water.

 

Jez Mead will bring his raw, hypnotic folk blues to the stage, a well travelled journeyman on a quest to invite listeners to explore his sonic sensibilities and diverse guitar styles. Sun Dirt Water is in store now through Jarrah Records and MGM Distribution. www.thewaifs.com
