“You just have to see this band live” triple j
WEST THEBARTON bring you the DIFFERENT BEINGS BEING DIFFERENT Tour.
Guitarist Tom Gordon says: "Rad Bar is absolutely, the number 1 music venue in the country. It feels like a DIY house show and a professional gig all at once, the owner is a legend, the bar staff are all legends, the soundie is a legend and the regulars are legends.."
West Thebarton are a seven-headed soul-rock hydra, straight outta Adelaide, this slightly-slack true-blue rock septet are into having a real good time. Led by charismatic leader figure, gravel-voiced frontman Reverend Ray, West Thebarton have spent the past few years honing razor sharp riffs, sticking them soundly to seriously tight melodic tones, and careering into bars, festival bills and best of lists.
Their life affirming anthems Moving Out, Bible Camp and new single Stuck On You have enjoyed a fair thrashing on triple j over the past 12 months, and they’ve already won over a ton of unsuspecting new fans on tour with Polish Club late last year, and at NYE on the Hill & Falls Festival in Byron and Lorne. After capturing the attention of Violent Soho’s James Tidswell the band have scored themselves a juicy record deal from his new label Domestic La La, and have committed their suburban homilies to tape. Their debut album, Different Beings Being Different will be unleashed in May and will see the band touring nationally before heading overseas for a string of debut festival appearances in Europe
