The Drones Add Sydney Show To Wait Long Anniversay Tour – Across The Ocean

The Drones Add Sydney Show To Wait Long Anniversay Tour

Last month The Drones announced a national tour to celebrate the 10th year anniversary the release of their seminal record Wait Long By The River And The Bodies Of Your Enemies Float By.

Earlier this year, the band played a special one off show at the Sydney Opera House, for Vivid Live, showcasing tracks from Wait Long, as well as a few new tunes thrown in for good measure. The show was met with a vigorous response, two standing ovations, for those of you in Sydney who missed it, they have just announced an intimate show at The Factory Theatre in Marrickville on Thursday August 27th.

Wait Long By The River And The Bodies Of Your Enemies Float By will be released on deluxe double 180g vinyl LP with a digital download and it’s own unreleased live album (you can pre order your copy now from thedrones.com.au). This is the first time the album has ever been released on vinyl.

“Let the record show that there is only one band that can open their set with a song that was voted by a group of their peers as the greatest Australian song of all time…That band, ladies and gentlemen, is The Drones.” Music Feeds

The Drones as one of the very best live bands this country has produced.” Fasterlouder

“The crowd were absolutely transfixed throughout the entire performance, which is a testament to the power and synergy of The Drones and their music, particularly in a live setting.” Monster Children

“Performed live by The Drones at the Opera House with no less vigour than when it was first released a decade ago, the song still has the power to elevate the hairs on the back of the neck and simultaneously send a shiver down the spine, in the best possible way…..The combined effect, like a visceral true-crime soundtrack, was hypnotic…. bringing the audience out of their stunned reverie and to their feet as Liddiard twiddled the knobs on his amp and slunk away.” Sydney Morning Herald

Joining The Drones will be Melbourne doom punk Batpiss, whose recent film clip for ‘The Store’ will give you nightmares for days and the Steve Miller Band (in Castlemaine and Melbourne only), who will just give you nightmares.

Throughout 2015, as well as releasing their brand new seventh studio album, The Drones will be reissuing their entire back catalog through their own label, TFS Records. The new shop at thedrones.com.au will also make available a bunch of new and old school limited edition T-Shirts, posters and other crap that has to date only been available at shows. Sign up to the mailing list at thedrones.com.au to ensure you don’t miss out on anything as reissues etc will be staggered throughout the year.
