Well we've been very busy and slightly reclusive, but the result is our new album "Sometimes The Stars" and a tour to celebrate. We've also had some new photos taken and a video recorded, so have a look on our facebook page for some behind the scenes shots.
The writing of the record was interspersed with a backpacking jaunt through India, a tequila-soaked trip to Los Angeles, and a determination to get back to where it all started with a focus on the song writing partnership of Taasha Coates and Tristan Goodall.
Once in the studio we had the great privilege of working with some wonderful musicians including Tim Rogers, jazz pianist Paul Grabowsky, the boys from Tripod and Michael Barker of John Butler Trio fame. We were of course working again under the deft hand of producer, engineer and friend Shane O'Mara.
We'll be taking the brand new album on the road, playing all states and many regional areas across Australia throughout October, November and December. It's been over 2 years since we've seen this much of the country and we're bringing a fabulous new backing band to guarantee a good time. Woo! See all the dates below.
Joining us as our special guest at most shows will be piano playing indie-pop songwriter Nicholas Roy. Nicholas burst onto the scene earlier this year with Triple J fave "It's All My Fault" and will be releasing his debut album to coincide with this national tour.
Pre-order the new album from Sanity or JB Hi Fi from 27th Aug and receive a limited edition 2CD digipak, on release, featuring a special live 4 track Acoustic EP recorded earlier this year at The Troubadour in Brisbane during Taasha and Tristan's duo tour.
Pre-order the album through iTunes from 27th Aug and receive an exclusive live 4 track digital Acoustic EP, on release, recorded at Notes in Sydney on the same tour.
We are also extra chuffed to be releasing the album on vinyl to coincide with the CD release. So no waiting for all you record junkies.
We can't wait to see y'all on the road. Keep an eye on our facebook and twitter as we'll be asking for suggestions on the best places to eat, drink and sleep from locals as we make our way up, down and around the countryside.
