After showcasing their “Beach Goth” intensity to sold-out shows throughout Australia already earlier this year, Californian band The Growlers will return to Newcastle in 2015.
Last time they were here, fans were given a sold out tour filled with intimate shows, sweaty rooms, and endless dancing as The Growlers played and surfed their way across the country. A mixture of swagger, performance, and dancing on stage – with each member providing a perfect sunburned and salty backdrop for Brooks to do his thing as they play hit after sweaty hit.
The band will hit Newcastle’s The Small Ballroom on Thursday Janurary 8 to showcase a new full-length album of reverb-heavy surf-guitar, Bakersfield-style honky-tonk, and ‘80s post-punk that fans have come to expect.
The 11 songs found on Chinese Fountain are some of the strongest and most diverse that they’ve committed to tape yet; a by-product not only of eight years in the trenches together, but finely honing their gypsy folk dirges and psychedelic sea shanties to fans at close to 150 shows each year.
