Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats 2015 Meredith Sideshows Announced

British cult legends Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats have announced they will be performing three headline shows in Australia in addition to their set at Meredith Music Festival.

With a new album The Night Creeper in hand, the band will play in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne over December.

The Night Creeper is set to be released in early September and is a hearty, rock n’ roll opus that sounds distinctly British. Headed by frontman Kevin Starrs, the band developed a cult following in Britain and have since taken their live show to the US and soon down-under.

The band are very particular when describing their sound, referencing specific periods of culture. “The idea is that this album could have started life as an old cheap, grime-covered 25 cent pulp paperback,” Starrs recently told The Quietus continuing, “but then perhaps it is adapted into a film noir, which itself is then re-made twenty years later as an ultraviolent, slasher Italian Giallo film. The album follows this aesthetic lineage as it descends from trash to noir to something discernibly darker.”

Tickets for all shows are on sale now. See all the details below.
