The Drones pinned SOLD OUT signs to all of the shows on their Havilah album launch tour last year; it was the most ambitious tour of the band’s career to date, and the most successful. The summer months came and went with them playing to even bigger crowds at The Falls Festival, Big Day Out and Laneway festivals.
Now back on the road again The Drones will be joined on the road by Los Angeles experimental noise-punk outfit Qui, featuring ex- Scratch Acid and The Jesus Lizard vocalist David Yow. Qui have been building a cult following in the USA since they began in 2000, this will be their first trip to Australia.
Tasmanian bred, Melbourne-based dirty rockers Witch Hats will also tag along for the ride. The band was praised in publications around Australia for its full-length debut Cellulite Soul in 2008. Their live show has been described as “The Scientists meets Asteroid B612 with some Rowland S. Howard thrown in to the mix” (Ben Eltham, The Courier Mail).
Head along to one of these tour dates to catch what by all counts looks set to be a memorable evening out.
