Following their sold-out national tour in June, Melbourne’s favourite boys from Woodlock are packing up and hitting the road again in September and October.
17 shows, 6 states and 3 regional festivals will welcome the indie-rock threesome. The five week tour celebrates the release of their new single The Garden, which represents a shift in sound for the band. Addison Lynch from Hillydilly Music described the track as a “celestial masterpiece”, saying “Woodlock excels at transforming elemental components of a rock band into a work of art with little aid from the digital world.”
The Garden is the second single from their recently released EP Labour of Love, which debuted in the overall ARIA charts top 100 and also in the ARIA top 50 digital downloads chart. The release also sat comfortably, for over 3 weeks, in the iTunes Singer/songwriter charts.
Woodlock are being supported on THE GARDEN TOUR by Fieu (pronounced fee-yu), Brisbane’s six piece alternate pop collective headed by powerhouse songstress Emily Brewis. Think London Grammar or Portishead with ultra-sizzling lyricist.
Brothers Eze and Zech Walters and Bowen Purcell, who are Woodlock, do things differently. They built the love around their music through busking. Many of their over 17,500 facebook followers enjoyed their street shows and have supported them since. The band have no label, no investors and no radio airplay as yet.
“We are blessed, we seem to have a very loyal fan base” said Eze Walters. They are not just numbers on our facebook, they are people who enjoy our music and are willing to make the effort to come and see us. It’s something we really appreciate”.
THE GARDEN TOUR takes the band to Western Australia and Tasmania for the first time.
