PREMIERE: Sydney Rockers PLANET Unveil Debut EP ‘Waking Eight’ & New East Coast Tour

Written by Tom Williams on April 30, 2018

Sydney rockers PLANET are preparing to release their debut EP Waking Eight, but before that happens they’re streaming the whole thing right here on Music Feeds.

Currently touring the UK supporting DMA’S, the band tell Music Feeds that Waking Eight “has been a long time coming”.

“I reckon it says a lot about what’s to come in the next few years,” says frontman Matty Took.

“Would love to drop album after album every few months, but I doubt you would have the same connection to the songs. We have actually taken a couple of songs off to save for our album to come.

“We’ve worked with some great people and friends throughout the recording process, filming and artwork for this collection. It bangs off with a punchy number ‘For You’ and finishes with my personal favourite and third single/B-side ‘You, Just A Little More’. Leaving it as a pretty tasty sanga.”

Waking Eight — released on Tuesday, 1st May — was engineered by Matty Took, alongside Lachlan Mitchell (Jezebels, Little Bastard), who also mixed the EP.

The record, which you can stream in full below, will be followed by an east coast tour this June, hitting up venues in Melbourne, Wollongong, Sydney, Byron Bay, Newcastle, Mona Vale and Brisbane.
