After a triumphant start to the year already littered with career defining highlights, including trips to China and New Zealand, a slot on the Soundwave Festival, a national summer tour and the release of an inspired Clash cover, The Bennies live up to their title as one of Australia’s hardest working bands by announcing yet another headline tour. As they prepare for their first U.S expedition and a slot at Gainesville’s The Fest in October, the band will play a run of Victorian dates ably supported by Jeff Rosenstock of recently defunct New York band Bomb The Music Industry. Having toured both with his band and solo, the latest tour will typically be filled with surprises, including new and old songs. “Whenever I do acoustic tours I leave out a sheet of paper and allow people to request whatever songs of mine they want to hear and I’ll do my best to play all of them,” he says. Opening the shows will be Adelaide’s Hightime, who are gearing towards the release of a new record to follow up 2011’s ‘Ishi Prende‘. Expand this post for the dates and venues.
