Something For Kate announce first club shows in four years
It has been a long time between intimate club shows for perennial Australian rock favourites Something For Kate, but that’s all about to change.
Today, the band announce five club shows in capital cities around the country, where they’ll get up close and personal with their throng of devoted fans at venues far smaller than you’re likely to see the band on a regular tour.
These dates come immediately following their support slots with Midnight Oil in Canberra and at Hanging Rock, so you can be assured that any dust that’s gathered over the band’s spell of time away from the touring circuit will be well and truly blown away.
Besides, it's not as if the band have completely vanished over the past few years. They've turned in some incredible performances, including a flawless set as a part of the big A Day On The Green tour last year.
This tour news comes just days after the band confirmed they are working on album number seven.
While we have absolutely no information about what they’ve been doing in the studio besides this picture, the prospect of new material from the band – their first in five years – is incredibly exciting.
While we’re sure they’ll let us in on a few of their most recent creations, the band have made strong assurances that they’ll be pulling tracks from right across their 20+ years and six acclaimed albums to date, so get those singing voices primed for when the band drop by your city later in the year.
Anthemic Melburnian rockers Slowly Slowly play support at all shows.
The dates are as follows. Tickets are available from Friday morning; they’re small shows so we’d recommend getting them quickly.
Friday 10 November – Manning Bar, Sydney
Saturday 11 November – The Triffid, Brisbane
Friday 17 November – The Gov, Adelaide
Saturday 18 November – Rosemount, Perth
Friday 24 November – 170 Russell, Melbourne
The band also play the following dates in support of Midnight Oil:
Tuesday 24 October – AIS Arena, Canberra
Saturday 4 November – Hanging Rock, Macedon Ranges
