Another day, another Tour Guide. This one sees announcements from Melbourne’s dirty rockers The Delta Riggs, Sydney genre hoppers Slumberhaze, and triplej Unearthed Artist of the Year Remi. Though they may all sound different, these Aussie artists do have one thing in common – there’s a lot of eyes and ears turned their way in 2014.
The Delta Riggs National Tour Dates
Melbourne rock quartet The Delta Riggs recently gave us Supersonic Casualties, our first sample of their upcoming sophomore effort, Dipz Zebazios, and today they’ve dropped dates for a tour of the same name, hitting a host of stops up and down the East Coast this April, with support from Jenny Broke The Window, Jakarta Criers, and White Caves.
They’ll also be winning a whole new bunch of fans at the AFL, with their track Scratch Flower being selected to soundtrack the sport’s Everything’s Possible campaign. The tune will run alongside some of footy’s biggest stars throughout the 2014 season.
