Regular John Announce Album Tour

Written by Michael Carr on June 10, 2009

The wait is finally over! Ready to hit the road on a headline tour of Australia are REGULAR JOHN, armed with their critically acclaimed debut album, The Peaceful Atom Is A Bomb (Difrnt Music/Universal). Several of the album tracks were heard screaming through the airwaves of Youth Network TRIPLE J when it was awarded Feature Album of the Week in May! Both preceding singles, Language and Abbatoir Noir also found a place on the Triple J playlists, as had all their previous releases. With strong support from all community radio, including Feature Packs on Melbourne’s 3RRR, Sydney’s 2SER and Brisbane’s 4ZzZ, also PBS’ Drive Album of the Week, their acclaimed debut is getting all the right sort of attention.

The Sydney foursome’s debut album, The Peaceful Atom Is A Bomb – out now on Difrnt Music / Universal – which Rolling Stone magazine has already dubbed “the perfect distillation of everything good that’s happened since rock found a heavy, fuzzy imagination in the late Sixties” – is the culmination of two intense years of hard living, hard partying and – more than anything – f*cking hard work.

Joining Regular John for their national tour are Sydney band TALONS armed with a debut album ready to be released on Rice Is Nice on May 30th. Talons emerge with a more mature and focused long player; a bomb-blast of energy that serves as a blueprint for their recent excursions into more melodic and adventurous territory.

Make no mistake – this is rock ‘n’ roll, delivered with the same fuck-the-man spirit that Iggy Pop and the Asheton brothers summoned in Detroit all those years ago! See it live throughout June and July;
