After a massive tour this year to celebrate their 30th anniversary, The Baby Animals are once again reuniting with Killing Heidi and, this time around, Newy is on the agenda.
Yep, that’s right rock fans. This dynamic duo will hit The Cambridge Hotel on Friday 28 August!
Featuring two of this country’s most formidable frontwomen in Suze DeeMarchi and Ella Hooper, the Baby Animals are responsible for such hits as Early Earning, One Word, Painless, Rush You, Weir, Mascara and Live Without It so you can expect all-killer-no-filler sets from both bands.
The Baby Animals have been one of Australia’s biggest bands since they burst onto the scene with their self-titled debut back in 1991.
The record went eight times platinum and won three ARIA Awards – Best Album, Best Debut Album and Best Debut Single. It was also declared one of the Top 25 albums of 1992 in UK rock bible Kerrang!
It’s been twenty years since Hooper siblings Killing Heidi released their disarming folk-pop song, Kettle on triple j unearthed. The band soon expanded into colourful teenage power pop and burst onto the national and international stage with their breakthrough debut 2000 album Reflector.
“Killing Heidi and Baby Animals just feels like a match made in heaven, if I do say so myself, and the crowd’s response was so enthusiastic the first time we played together that we couldn’t resist having another go – AND extending the tour,” Ella Hooper said.
Catch the Baby Animals and Killing Heidi at The Cambridge Hotel on Friday 28 August. Head here for tickets.
