The original release of Galactaphonic in 1995 launched the sound of Tumbleweed across Australia. With a six week stay in the ARIA top 50, it’s said to be one of the most loved-albums of the era.
Now, after 20 years, the album is set to be re-released on August 7, followed by a national tour. The reissue will feature the original 13 tracks as well as extras including 9 B-Sides/EP tracks, 9 unreleased tracks, five cassette demo recordings and alternate versions of ‘Hang Around’, ‘Gyroscope’ and ‘Round The Bend’ among others. The reissue will also see the album released on vinyl for the very first time.
After the unfortunate passing of bassist Jason (Jay) Curely in 2014, the greatly anticipated Tumbleweed return is sure to be a powerful and emotional move for the band and their fans.
