The Snowdroppers Hit The Road In Support Of New Album

Written by Mike Hohnen on February 7, 2013

With a brand new album on the way, The Snowdroppers must be antsy to get the goods to the people, and to facilitate just that, the band have announced a run of East Coast shows where they will be showcasing their new sonic offerings. The shows consist of a stack of headlining dates as well as a few festival appearances.

Fans of the band will look fondly back to 3-and-a-half years ago when the band burst down the door and strutted right to the front of the line at the bar with their debut album Too Late to Pray. Their charisma and charm oozed through the tracklist and found its way into their live performance.

Now with a few more feathers in their cap and stripes on their boards, they have returned with Moving Out of Eden. The album will be unleashed Friday, 22nd March just in time for their first headlining show of the tour, and coincidentally enough, right here in Sydney, boo yah!

The release is being praised as a much more streamlined version of the swampy, bluesy vibe. In other words, they’ve kept the balls, but found a much more grounded way to use them.

Joining them for the majority of shows will be Sydney’s own 7-piece punk strings crew Little Bastard.
