Ball Park Music Announce Huge ‘Weirder & Weirder’ National Tour

Ball Park Music are currently gearing up to release their new album Weirder & Weirder on Friday, 3rd June via their own Prawn Records. The same day it arrives, the band will kick off a huge national tour, starting with a hometown show at Brisbane’s Fortitude Music Hall.

From there, the tour will continue on to the Sunshine Coast, Perth, Wollongong, Sydney, Newcastle, Hobart, Darwin, Cairns and Canberra before wrapping up at the Forum in Melbourne on Saturday, 16th July. King Stingray and Teenage Joans will split up main support duties, with RAT!hammock opening up all shows. Tickets are on sale next Tuesday, 8th March, with a fan pre-sale kicking tomorrow.

“We are so excited to have King Stingray, Teenage Joans and Rat!Hammock joining us on this tour. We’ve been admiring their music from afar for a while now, we can’t wait to share a stage with them on what’s going to be one hell of a tour,” the band commented in a statement announcing the shows.

“Whilst we’ve jumped at every live opportunity that’s presented itself to us over the last couple of years, there is nothing like headlining your own tour. We’ve missed that shared experience of live shows with the fans, and we can’t wait to do that again…with a few new tunes in tow!”

BPM will indeed have a slew of new tunes to show off on the run. They’ve released two singles from Weirder & Weirder thus far, ‘Sunscreen’ back in October of last year and ‘Stars in My Eyes’ last month. The album will follow the band’s 2020 self-titled LP, which you’ll recall featured gems like ‘Spark Up!’, ‘Day & Age’ and ‘Cherub’.
