Aleks & The Ramps are a bit shy, so they sent us this letter to all of you. I think they like you…..
After a whirlwind micro-tour supporting our single Antique Limb, we’ve put the final layer of shininess to the tour plans for our new album Midnight Believer which is out through Stomp on the 29th of May (TOMORROW!!), and now we’re ready to let ya’ll know when and where we’ll be kicking out these jams in the flesh. The flesh in question will be adorned with shiny things and might looks like this:
Thursday 18th June – Newcastle – The Lass O’Gowrie
Saturday 20th June – Sydney – The Hopetoun Hotel
Saturday 27th June – Brisbane – Top Floor
Friday 3rd July – Hobart – The Brisbane Hotel
Sunday 5th July – Belgrave – Ruby’s Lounge
Thursday 9th July – Adelaide – The Jade Monkey
Friday 10th July – Melbourne – Roxanne Parlour
All shows will be supported by MIXYLODIAN (Montreal)
Hopefully at least one of these shows is near you (sorry Perth!) and you’ve got nothing else on that you really need to attend to. Should you choose to stay at home, we’ve provided many options for the web-savvy stalker: (our twitter, myspace, flickr)
This tour is extra exciting for us, as the support act we’re bringing along with us is our buddy Mike, fresh off the plane from his hometown, Montreal. The band he fronts, Mixylodian, is an electro/indie project consisting of himself and a revolving cast of humans, gameboys, samplers and backing tracks. On this particular tour, he’ll be playing some songs solo, and some with a backing band, which is us!. We’re just learning his songs now, très excitement!
The album has been receiving some nice press, and maybe you’ve heard bits of it on the radio or the information superhighway, but you don’t really get the full experience without being the same room as extreme wheeze’s glimmering cod-piece.
