Tour: Hoodoo Gurus ‘Purity Of Essence’ Tour ‘Purity Of Essence’ Tour – April/May 2010

The mighty Hoodoo Gurus are back with their ninth studio album Purity Of Essence and to mark this auspicious occasion they will do what they do best: hit the road and perform like they have done for many a decade, exciting fans across the globe with a live show to rock you to your core and leave you aching for more!

The Gurus exist in their own time and space. They have been a part of the Australian music psyche since they brought us classic songs like Tojo, My Girl and I Want You Back from the Stoneage Romeos-era and from Mars Needs Guitars Bittersweet, Death Defying or Like Wow Wipeout! . Throw in 1000 Miles Away, Waking Up Tired and The Right Time, and more than 100 other songs they have written, recorded and played that have meant something to someone some time and there is no denying that on record or live, they ARE Oz rock royalty.

Dave Faulkner and his band mates, guitarist Brad Shepherd, bassist Rick Grossman and drummer Mark Kingsmill, have been going strong, again, since reuniting in late-2003 after almost six years apart.

Borrowed from the bands favourite movie, Stanley Kubrick’s Dr Strangelove Or How I Stopped Worrying And Learned To Love The Bomb, Purity Of Essence features the first single, Crackin Up, a song so quintessentially Gurus that you just know the album that follows MUST be good. The second single to be released from the album is I Hope Your Happy which is lighting up radio around the country and, just announced, was the 4th most added song at radio this week!

Purity Of Essence was born in one of those mythical bursts of unbridled creativity; that serendipitous moment when lightning strikes and the songs happen. So now, another page in the Gurus history is about to unfold as they reveal an album that, by all accounts, is one of the best to date and announce a national tour to showcase the new tracks and of course, play the Hoodoo Gurus classics we all know and love. and which makes for one hell of a cracking live show!
