It’s bordering on the year 2020 and thanks to meme culture, everything old is new again. Emo kids are moshing to The Veronicas, that guy from Australian Idol is back on TV and Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ just hit #1 for the first time ever, 25 years after its original release.
What better time for Rogue Traders to make a comeback?
The Natalie Bassingthwaighte-fronted pop collective technically reformed in 2017 following the singer’s stint on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, but they’ll be making their 2020 return to the live arena in March of next year at Canberra’s Anthem Music Festival.
What’s more, Nat Bass told The Tele that they could be test-driving new music.
“I may be going back into the studio next year but you will just have to wait and see what that means,” she said.
“They’ve been working on some material while I’ve been away,” the singer stated in an interview from last year. “There’s some stuff in the pipeline which I’m really looking forward to.
“We want to make great music and we want to perform live.”
On the topic of the group’s current dynamic, the Neighbours alum also added: “It is still as crazy as ever and it is still as vibey as ever, don’t get me wrong, we are not just chilling out.’
‘We still have as much energy as we always have, I just feel like it is slicker in a way.”
Rogue Traders’ last release was 2011’s Night Of The Living Drums.
Who knows? The way things are going maybe we could see them at Good Things 2020? #HereComeTheDrumsHereComeTheDrums
