The Bennies are back on home soil and will be taking their new album, ‘Natural Born Chillers‘ around the country over the next month, continuing their reign of taking 2018 as their own. The 14 date run will see the four-piece take to regional and metro hotspots across five states including VIC, NSW, QLD, SA, WA and TAS.
The Bennies kicked off their year in fine form with the release of their new album via Pool House Records in February.
Following the release, the band enjoyed slots at St. Kilda Festival, the inaugural Pool House Party as well as the tenth anniversary of The Hills Are Alive. These would be the last performances for departing bassist Craig Selak after nine years with the group, although The Bennies would assure party levels remained at an all time high with the recruitment of Nicholas Williams of Foxtrot on bass duties.
Fresh blood in the mix and their brand new album at the ready, The Bennies then took to Europe and The UK. With 30 shows in 32 days The Bennies have been showcasing their blistering live act to huge crowds at festivals such as Uncle M Fest and Antattack in Germany and Austria’s SBÄM Festival as well as playing to hundreds at their first London headline show.
Upon their return, The Bennies are geared to keep it all going during their home country tour and have locked in duo The Gooch Palms to come along for the ride. Meanwhile up-and-coming indie punk-rockers from Adelaide, Young Offenders, will also join the festivities.
