GIG NEWS: The Drones Announce Tour Dates For August and September
2005 was the year that Melbourne's The Drones released their critically acclaimed album and Australian Music Prize winning album By The River And The Bodies Of Your Enemies Float. The release was so successful both locally and internationally that even today, it's one of the most finest works a band from this country has created.
For the tenth anniversary of the release, they played a once off show at Sydney Opera House as part of Vivid Live last month, showcasing tracks from the release, as well as a few new tracks. The show received such a positive response, including two standing ovations, that they have decided to go on tour so more fans can celebrate the release's anniversary with them.
Along with tour dates, they will be releasing the album on deluxe double 180g vinyl, with a digital album and an unreleased live album (available if you preorder your copy via thedrones.com.au). This will mark the first time the album has been released on vinyl.
To catch them on the road, check out the dates and ticket info below. Tickets will go on sale on Friday June 26.
