Husky Announce Tour Dates & New Single – Across The Ocean

Husky Announce Tour Dates & New Single

Fans of Husky can rejoice in the news of a capital city headline tour for July and a new single, due for release on June 30.


The tour, which will see the Melbourne band gracing stages at intimate venues in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Fremantle, Sydney and Brisbane, is Husky’s first since 2012. The shows will see Husky Gawenda, Gideon Preiss and Evan Tweedie joined on-stage by drummer Arron Light, playing songs from their much loved debut Forever So as well as brand new material.

One such song is ‘I’m Not Coming Back’. Written by Gawenda in a small makeshift studio at the back of his house, located directly beneath a flight path, it came to be one evening when the stars overhead were particularly illuminating and the airplanes gliding past seemed to be twinkling in their reflected light.

Tapping into the notion that most of us have the need to leave something behind in our lives, and showcasing the band’s rare ability to tell stories and create worlds for the listener, ‘I’m Not Coming Back’ is a distinctly Husky song, yet with an added drive and energy – just like one of those planes gliding through the night, moving toward a new destination.

The single will be released on June 30. It offers the first glimpse at a new collection of songs that form Husky’s second LP. The album itself is scheduled for release this Spring.

Husky released their debut album Forever So in 2011. The band’s signature sophistication in song writing, musicianship and orchestration captivated both industry and public, and saw them touring Australia, the US and Europe for almost two years running. Since then, the band have been enjoying time back home in Melbourne, crafting and rehearsing their new songs.
