They’ve just returned from the U S of A, and have only recently announced they’ll be joining the lineup for Groezrock 2014 – but, it seems Melbourne locals, The Smith Street Band have no plans on stopping the good news there – with the band unveiling a plethora of local dates for the New Year.
As their profile has catapulted, it has afforded the fiercely independent four-piece the luxury of booking their own tours and most notably, hand picking supports. Their latest tour and first of 2014 is no exception, this time sharing their little slice of paradise with Scranton raised, Philadelphia based punk rock outfit The Menzingers.
While both bands rode a new wave of success in 2013, the New Year signifies a further onward trajectory, with an Australian tour just the beginning.
Adding further excitement to the tour, support on all shows will come from Western Australian off kilter pop-punk band Grim Fandango, fresh from the release of their second full length LP Flicker Noise on Poison City Records.
Tickets for all shows go on sale Monday 16th December via The Smith Street Band’s website: www.thesmithstreetband.com
