The Smith Street Band Are Heading On Tour With Luca Brasi & Friends!
There’s a list of bands that can head off on four wide-scale national tours in the span of two years, on the back of one single album, and pull a bigger and more hysterical crowd with each one that passes. It’s a short list – a very short list – but rest assured, The Smith Street Band are at the very top of it. Currently underway with a 26-date run of the United States, the Melbourne pub-punks have just announced another one for the friends and fam back home, and oh boy, is it a big one.
Serving as a “victory lap” for 2014’s insanely acclaimed Throw Me In The River, the 8-show trek will hit Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Melbourne, alongside a couple of dates across the pond for our Kiwi bros. The foursome will play some of their biggest headlined venues to date, keeping up with their trend of selling out 1,000-cap rooms on an impressively regular basis.
In true Smith Street style, support acts for the run are nothing short of perfect. Tassie rockers Luca Brasi lead the pack, making this their first national tour since the release of their latest opus, If This Is All We’re Going To Be – out April 29th via Poison City. Melbourne hip-hop luminary Joelistics will bring his solo project grooves to the table, and Avoca Beach songstress Jess Locke will round out the bill with her not-solo-project, the affably-named Jess Locke Band.
Following the tour in June, The Smithies are expected to hit the studio once more to start laying down their fourth studio album. After that? Probably another four or five tours… All of which we’ll be at.
