Regular John Announce Tour In Support Of New Album

Sydney’s Regular John have ended their studio hibernation in spectacular fashion, having already passed down to fans their first new track Slume, the band has declared that they will be conquering venues all over the country as they showcase their hugely anticipated new album Strange Flowers.

The dates will run through September and October and will include stops at most major cities, and many in between. Though the last time we heard material from the band was 2009’s The Peaceful Atom is a Bomb, they recently played at the Annandale stage at the Big Day Out of 2011 as well as a support slot for Motorhead shortly after.

Strange Flowers marks a new chapter in the life of Regular John, shaking off their hard rock, punk inclinations to venture further down their psychedelic journey. Speaking of the release, band member Caleb Goman demonstrated just how excited the band is to be recording and touring again: “Coming out of studio hibernation is always a startling experience. Live to write and write to live. We will be thoroughly enjoying rocking it out to you. Yeah!”

As well as the tour dates listed below, the band will be showcasing their single Slume at 2SER’s Live at the Loft series on August 30; it will be a free event with all and any welcome. The video is expected very, very soon, and if that’s not enough, we have the track up for free download; check it out!
