Speaking of the tour, frontman John Dwyer said “we are very pleased to finally be announcing this summer time tour in Aussie. I have nothing but fond memories from previous trips, so I’m rearing to memory make. We will be touring with double drummers (a la old school) and playing both old favourites and new heavies. We will also be bringing the infamous Nicholas Hoare on the road with us, with whom we’ve always toured. He will be maximising PAs from coast to coast with us. I will hand screen a grip of Oh Sees posters , t-shirts annnnnnd we will have LPs!
So till then, mates, keep it clean and enjoy. Look forward to see you all out there!”
