The Bennies Will Be Blazing Up In A Venue Near You
“They say less is more, but more is more, and I want more until I’m on the floor!,” vocalist Anty Horgan screams on The Bennies’ “It Goes Without Saying”. A band of their word, Melbourne bong lords (as their press release so earnestly refers to them) have announced one last massive headline tour before 2015 goes up in smoke, further proving that despite being the country’s biggest stoners, The Bennies are damn hard
The psychedelic-reggae-ska-doom-metal-punk-rockers have already decimated Soundwave 2015, their own Party Whirlwind tour, a metric fuckton of one-off shows and a handful of boutique festival slots (not to mention their history-making TISM cover for triple j’s Like A Version), and the rest of the year will see them terrorise Poison City’s Weekender festival, a national supporting run with Less Than Jake and Reel Big Fish, and a quick hop across the pond for Florida’s Fest before they head home to roll it all up with this absolute volcano of a tour.
With album #3 in the bag and a test-show of exclusively unreleased jams being sneakily smashed out earlier this month, it’s almost guaranteed that the setlists for this tour will be loaded with new material. The quartet have already been teasing us with performances of upcoming cuts ‘Legalize But Don’t Tax” and “Detroit Rock Ciggies”, but we’ve got a sneaking suspicion these shows will bring with them a lot more juicy surprises.
Supported on most dates by Adelaide’s The Hard Aches and local friends Wet Pensioner (what a name), the tour will blaze through November with 18 dates hitting Darwin, Perth, and pretty much everywhere in-between.
Tickets are on sale now.
