The Break Announce National Tour

Written by John Ritchie on March 18, 2010

The Break’s first official tour kicks off on the Easter weekend with festival appearances at Victoria’s hip and happenin’ Boogie Fest and the esteemed Blues Fest in Byron Bay. 

On Good Friday the band will take their unique surf sounds to The Westernport Hotel on Victoria’s Phillip Island – an area renowned for its pumping surf – which is particularly apt as many of the tracks from the album are named after hot surf breaks.

Following their introduction to Sydney fans in February, the band will return to The Annandale Hotel on April 11th to officially introduce their new album ‘Church Of The Open Sky’ released on April 16th on the independent Bombora label through MGM. On April 20th they’ll turn on the local Newcastle fans with a special show at Lizotte’s at Lambton. From there THE BREAK team up with their mighty mates The Hoodoo Gurus as special guests for select shows on The Gurus ‘Purity Of Essence’ tour. Being old mates expect the unexpected as the two bands hit the road for the first time ever!

Commenting on the forthcoming tour, drummer, Rob Hirst said:

“We can’t wait to play the Easter shows and tour with the Gurus. We feel like we’re just beginning and there’s a great spirit and energy in the band. Live The Break is turning into a totally different beast with lots of inventive jamming and experimentation.”
