More shows in the pipeline for THE BREAK!

Following a stand-out performance at Byron Bay’s Blues Festival and a brief run of packed out shows with mates The Hoodoo Gurus, exciting new surf rock outfit THE BREAK is set to pack up the kombi for a series of headline shows along Australia’s eastern seaboard throughout June and July.

As they continue to celebrate the release of their debut album ‘Church Of The Open Sky’, the three founding members of Midnight Oil and band mate Brian Ritchie from Violent Femmes are musicians at the top of their game. With rolling toms and reverb on full throttle, Messrs. Hirst, Moginie, Rotsey and Ritchie are all set to take music lovers on a trip to the outer limits of surf, beyond the break, in a high octane performance that is powerful, dynamic and a whole lot of fun.

THE BREAK is riding high on a sonic wave and they’re tuning into and turning on new fans and familiar friends as they roll out their unique contemporary sounds in live rooms around the country. Think classic surf rock meets spy-fi psychedelia and you’ll get a grip on their brand of surf rock.
