The Beards Announce Anniversary Double Album & Tour With Dallas Frasca

Things are about to get hairy, because Australia’s most bewhiskered band is back on home turf and celebrating a decade of razor-free living.

The Beards are preparing to unleash a special double-album to commemorate the milestone, and will embark on a limited run of shows across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia under the banner of the Ten Long Years, One Long Beard Tour.

But they’re not going it alone. They’ll be joined by a lady whose fierce beardly-ness comes from within, Melbourne rockess Dallas Frasca.

Together, they’ll play nine shows across Australia this October, with The Beards kicking things off in the Sunshine State with two additional Frasca-less dates including an appearance at this year’s Caloundra Music Festival.

The Ten Long Years, One Long Beard tour will see Adelaide’s follicular foursome return to Australian soil after embarking on their fifth international tour in just three years.

“When we started out, we didn’t anticipate just how much global demand there would be for songs about beards,” reflects frontman, Johann Beardraven. “It’s been really amazing to discover that so many other people around the world share our unwavering enthusiasm when it comes to beards.”

Since forming in 2005 with the intention of playing just one show, The Beards have gone on to release four albums of original songs about beards, play sold out shows throughout Europe, Australia and North America, receive two ARIA Award nominations, and single-beardedly start a worldwide facial hair revolution.

“Beards have seen an overwhelming global resurgence over the last ten years,” explains bassist Nathaniel Beard. “I think it’s fair to say that we’ve played an instrumental role in that – both literally and figuratively.”

To coincide with the commencement of the tour, The Beards will also be releasing a brand new single as well as the aforementioned double album, consisting of a ‘best of’ compilation, rarities, and a live album recorded at a packed show at Sydney’s Metro Theatre earlier this year.

“We just really enjoy beards,” says Johann Beardraven.
