I want to let you know about 3 x very special, stripped back/acoustic shows I am playing in the beautiful Maldives in the first week of April 2019 at Kandooma Resort.
The week is aptly called “Surf Music In Paradise.” I’m playing 3 x sunset shows literally on the beach. It is family friendly, and I’m told the food, diving, surfing and accommodation is world class. Numbers are strictly limited, so get in early, it is going to be an amazing experience.
Today my new record Brutal Dawn is released along with tickets for the accompanying tour later this year. It’s the final stage of almost three years of writing, recording and touring for this two album project and I just want to say how grateful I am for all of the support I have received from you guys ever since we started bugging you about it at the beginning of last year. So thanks. It’s been a huge effort from Nick DiDia, The Black Fins and everyone at Dew Process and we are all so pleased we were able to pull off such a big project.
Also, those of you who have pre ordered the vinyl versions of these albums may have received a rather curt email earlier this week saying that the album will not be shipped until mid June. Firstly my apologies that you didn’t hear that from me first. Again, we had problems in the production stage of the vinyl for Brutal Dawn and I wanted it to be the best it could be before you guys got it. So, I can assure you that it is on its way shortly.
I hope you enjoy the record and can find the time to give it a couple of spins in its entirety. I think it’s a bit of a grower.
Very happy to announce that The Black Fins and I will be hitting the road later this year to celebrate the release of Brutal Dawn.
The Brutal Dawn Tour (took ages to think up) is coming your way in October/November to blow through smaller venues in all of the major cities in the Australian States and these will be my only headline dates on this album.
We decided after consulting widely with our Fan Club Focus Groups (one Facebook post), that playing pub type shows are the go.
It is clear that the people that like my music, also like listening to it while they are drinking. To me that sounds like a party. So if you want to have a party with me and The Black Fins, and a whole lot of ladies who will be leading the support bands on this tour later this year, have a look at the below links for all of the where, when, how much and who with. See you for a drink in Spring.
