Tin Can Radio – 20 Date National Tour [Tour News]

  Dynamic Brisbane indie-dance/art-rock five-piece, Tin Can Radio, are celebrating the release of their debut Long-Player Chase the Sun, Hold the Night with a massive 20 date tour around metropolitan and regional Australia. The tour begins its west-cost leg on March 15, and spans over April and May of 2011. The album will be available for purchase in limited release during the tour, and in stores and on iTunes on APRIL 15.

The debut album, Chase the Sun, Hold the Night, is the accumulation of two acclaimed single-releases and many hard months in the studio. The 11 track LP runs a knife edge between accessible and fun, and ambitious and sonically challenging; journeying through dreamy landscapes, sing-along hooks, punchy guitar driven riffs and grinding dubstep breakdowns. It features remastered and retouched versions of the first singles Hot Trash and Days to Dust, which were both featured and played in 2010 on Triple J radio, as well as standout live favourite and latest single, “Skeletons”.

Lead singer Tom Wearne explains, “The album is a reflection of our shared struggle in trying to do exactly what we want to do, our attempts to live forever, to never sleep and to have never ending, uncompromised fun. You could say that these are over-riding themes in the songs, but they are also over-riding themes in our lives and the reason why we make this music.”

Garnering the production skills of Brisbane producer Timeshare, (Hungary Kids of Hungary, The Boat People, Dan Parsons) the band has managed to attain exactly what they set out to achieve; a recording which captures the dynamics and infectious energy of their live show.

The massive album tour, spanning every Australian state and territory (besides Tasmania) will begin with a Western Australia leg in March of five shows across regional and metropolitan centres, followed soon thereafter by two shows in Alice Springs, NT. The tour then heads up and down the east coast of Australia spanning the months of April and May, with dates in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra, Cairns, Newcastle, Byron Bay and many more.

Tin Can Radio will be building off a successful 2010 of packed out shows and east-coast tours in support of their first two singles Hot Trash and Days To Dust, performances alongside Mystery Jets (UK), Last Dinosaurs, Dan Parsons, Laneous & the Family Yah, Yeo & The Fresh Goods, Montpelier and Georgia Potter, as well as festival performances at Woodford, Blah Blah Blah, and Brisbane Festival.

The Chase the Sun, Hold the Night tour has been made possible by the Federal Government Contemporary Music Touring Grant.
