After launching their new album to sell out shows around the country, The Blackeyed Susans play a final set of National Launch Tour shows at The Wheatsheaf in Adelaide on Saturday 28 & Sunday 29 July before returning to Melbourne for a special performance at The Flying Saucer Club with guests, folk-noir duo, Jep & Dep (Sydney) on Saturday 19 August.
The band released their seventh album, Close Your Eyes and See, in March via Teardrop Records, and kicked off a national tour in April. Their first album of new material in over a decade, the release finds the group near the height of their powers, delivering one of their strongest collections of songs to date, masterfully arranged and performed by a band with over 25 years experience together.
Led by chief songwriter Phil Kakulas and producer Dan Luscombe, Close Your Eyes and See combines the honeyed vocals of singer Rob Snarski with long, reverby trails of pedal steel, tremolo guitar, violin and keyboards. The result is a meticulously crafted album of dreamlike torch songs, bruised ballads and atmospheric rockers that sounds both classic and contemporary.
FINAL TOUR DATES:
Sat 29 July 2017 (9pm) | The Wheatsheaf Hotel | 39 George Street, Thebarton SA
Sun 30 July 2017 (4pm) | The Wheatsheaf Hotel 39 George Street, Thebarton SA
Sat 19 August 2017 (8pm) | The Flying Saucer Club | 4 St Georges Road, Elsternwick VIC
