Springtime Announce “Night Raver” EP

On the eve of their maiden national tour, Springtime are delighted to announce the release of their ‘Night Raver’ EP!

Australian Tour With Special Guest Grace Cummings (all shows aside from Perth)
Tickets on sale now from tropicalfuckstormrecords.com
‘Night Raver’ is Out March 2, 2022 via TFS Records & Joyful Noise


The pedigree of the band aside, Springtime’s new EP is still shocking in the masterful delivery of its lived poetry and epic range. Fearless and joyful, it balances its scale and weight with grace and light – I love this recordGuy Picciotto (Fugazi)
Out digitally March 2, 2022, via Joyful Noise Recordings.

‘Night Raver’ comes off the back of their critically acclaimed self-titled debut LP (Nov 2021) and features new single Names Of The Plague’, presenting lyrics from award-winning UK poet (and proud uncle of Gareth Liddiard) Ian Duhig and showcasing the musical talents of Drones alumni, Dan Luscombe on baritone guitar.

‘Night Raver’ also features a Springtime reworking of ‘The Radicalisation of D’, from Liddiard’s 2010 solo LP, ‘Strange Tourist’. And a studio recording of ‘Penumbra’, which fans got a listen of as a live release in early 2021.

Springtime’s national tour kicks off this week, with Grace Cummings supporting all shows aside from WA. Tixs are on sale now from tropicalfuckstormrecords.com

Gareth Liddiard (The Drones, Tropical Fuck Storm), Jim White (Xylouris White, Dirty Three, PJ Harvey) and Chris Abrahams (The Necks) are Springtime

“blending a moody guitar familiarly descendent from The Drones with steady piano and percussion that ultimately warps into a TFS-sanctioned whirlwind of guitar and vocals equally out of whack.” –FLOOD Magazine

“a vexing and visceral cut of alt-rock fused with elements of free jazz, the soundscape growing more cluttered and intense as Liddiard takes aim” –NME

“every ounce as brilliant as any of their other projects, Liddiard’s hectic, frazzled vocals are the perfect match for a gloomy and dramatic backing.” –The Quietus

“guitar fuzz and piano that gradually whips itself into an apocalyptic frenzy beneath Liddiard’s increasingly unhinged vocals.” –Stereogum

“coming together of three old hands and kindred spirits at a time when everything around them (and us) was coming apart.” –UNCUT

“a sublime chaos…Springtime’s music feels free, but never carefree, full of spontaneity, acidity and momentum sputtering in a thousand different, noisy directions at once” –Wire Magazine
