Tour Guide: Bonjah, The Holidays, Wolf & Cub

Today’s Tour Guide is bringing you three of Australia’s most critically acclaimed and hardest working young independent bands, with Melbourne boys Bonjah set to kick off their most extensive tour yet, The Holidays embarking on new East Coast dates, and a quick run from Wolf & Cub.

Bonjah Beautiful Wild National Album Tour

Melbourne-based four-piece Bonjah have announced their most extensive national tour yet. Supporting their critically acclaimed new record, Beautiful Wild, the tour will see the boys play 20 shows across six states, including shows in Tasmania and the Northern Territory, as thanks to fans.

Produced by Jan Skubiszewski, best known for working with Way Of The Eagle, John Butler Trio, and The Cat Empire, and mastered by Steve Smart (Empire Of The Sun) at Studios 301, Beautiful Wild has been a resounding success for this small independent rock band from Melbourne.

The Holidays Tongue Talk Tour

Following a successful national album tour in March, The Holidays have now announced that they will embark on a quick run of East Coast shows later this month. The dates will coincide with the release of Tongue Talk, the garagey, uplifting third single from the band’s sophomore LP, Real Feel.

The album has received solid support and media attention since its release in late February, amassing praise as Triple J‘s feature album upon release. The latest single has been hailed as a highlight of an album filled with fresh, infectious tunes, and been called a “triumphant pop anthem.”
