Those jokesters and purveyors of the most impressive form of facial hair The Beards have announced their comprehensive 29-date national tour, which kicks off later this year in November. The hairy four-piece from SA released their third studio record earlier this year, the well-titled Having a Beard is the New Not Having a Beard.
As for the upcoming national tour’s title The 2012 End of The World (For Beardless People), The Beards tell, on their tour page, of an ancient prophecy as read below:
By now, everyone has heard about the various ancient prophecies predicting some sort of apocalypse at the end of this year. There’s the Mayan prophesies, the Incan and Egyptian prophesies, the prophesies of Nostradamus, as well as a host of prophesies from the people on the Internet. Every single one of these prophesies, if misinterpreted correctly, forecasts that this year could mark the end of the world as we know it. But there’s one prophecy that’s still relatively obscure, and it predicts that on December 21st, 2012, the world will end – for people without beards.
This age-old foretelling has prompted the world’s most beard-related theme band to spring into action. From September 28th, The Beards will embark upon their biggest Australian tour to date, in an attempt to convince as many cleanchins as possible to repent before it’s too late.
