Gersey Return In 2010

Written by Daniel Clarke on January 21, 2010

Seminal Melbourne indie rock band Gersey announce their return to the stage to support Pavement on their upcoming national tour and to headline a series of shows.

Formed in 1997, Gersey built up a fanatically loyal fan base with the release of albums Hope Springs (2000), Storms Dressed As Stars (2002) and No Satellites (2006). They toured extensively, both locally and internationally, and played festivals around the country including Big Day Out, Laneway Festival, Falls Festival and Pyramid Rock. They have also supported such luminaries as The Flaming Lips, Wilco, Mogwai and Mercury Rev.

The Pavement/Gersey connection goes back almost ten years with Gersey performing its first US shows with Spiral Stairs’ Preston School of Industry in 2001. Gersey and PSOI released a split seven-inch in 2003 and they have twice toured Australia together. More recently, members of Gersey have performed with Spiral Stairs on his solo album and as his touring band.

Now Gersey will support Pavement on their highly anticipated national tour. As part of the tour Gersey will also perform headline shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane. Post-tour the band will return to the studio to begin work on their fourth album. A single is expected by the end of 2010.
