Melbourne four piece The Getaway Plan have announced some Australian tour dates in December and November, to coincide with the release of their new album Requiem, the band’s first in 4 years.
After going their separate ways for a period to focus on other musical endeavours (The Amity Affliction, Young Heretics, Deez Nuts), in November 2010 Matthew Wright (Vocals, Guitar, Keyboards), Clint Owen Ellis (Guitar), Dave Anderson (Bass) and Aaron Barnett (Drums) announced live on Triple J their intention to reform and record a new album. The break between albums enabled the band to take the sense and sound of The Getaway Plan to the next essential level.
Phantoms, the first track leaked by the band on their website, resulted in over 10,000 new fans joining their Facebook within days. This worthy album track may have only given their fans a small taste of what is to come, but has created a huge amount of anticipation.
The Getaway Plan’s new album Requiem will be released on November 4th.
