Frontman Jared Leto and the gang will be in here in celebration of their newly released fourth album, ‘Love Lust Faith + Dreams’. Tickets will sell fast; don't miss out when they play Brisbane Entertainment Centre on Tuesday August 13.
No Man Is An Inland
Inland Sea co-founder Jeremy Hunter is breaking out on his own with his debut self-titled EP and will be hitting the road in support. The record mixes instruments, styles and sounds, ranging from up-tempo power ballads to delicate folk and hearty blues – all delving into the human aspects of love, escape and disillusionment. Jeremy will bring these numbers to life with the help of a bristling three-piece band when he plays Black Bear Lodge on Sunday May 26.
Brisbane indie-pop outfit The Jungle Giants will play a handful of shows in support of their latest single ‘I Am What You Want Me To Be’. After a pretty successful 2012 on the back of their hit ‘She's A Riot’, the band have emerged with an ever-growing fanbase stimulated by festival slots and national supports. Catch them while they're young at Oh Hello! on Friday July 12.
Xavier Rudd will be headlining a three-pronged tour alongside Donavon Frankenreiter and Nahko And Medicine For The People later this year. Rudd is one of Australia's musical stalwarts, with his most recent single, ‘Follow The Ocean’ reaching Gold status and featuring in triple J's Hottest 100. The tour ends here when it hits the YAC Ampitheatre, Byron Bay, October 7 and The Tivoli October 8.
Melbourne synth-pop outfit Clubfeet will make a return to the Australian touring circuit with a ten-date national jaunt. Following early success this year on the back on their acclaimed sophomore album ‘Heirs & Graces’, the band’s new single ‘Cape Town’ is set to keep their 2013 momentum alive. Catch them when they play Oh Hello! on Thursday July 18 with Panama in support.
Jazz It Up
Brisbane jazz-fusion outfit The Chris Poulsen Trio will release their new, retro-tinged album, ‘David And Goliath’ on June 1. Back with a new line-up, the album promises to deliver old-school grooves melded with their signature quirky, yet accessible jazz. In celebration, the band will be launching the album with a show at The Studio (Metro Arts) on June 1.
