Wagons are now well and truly road-hardened, still covered in blisters from their recent mammoth thirty date tour of their latest album The Rise and Fall of Goodtown. The combined success of album sales (since release in April The Rise and Fall of Goodtown has sold three times more than their previous efforts) and their rollicking live shows has seen the Melbourne group become one of the hottest tickets around the country. Wagons were already a formidable force, but with this latest record and current live show, something greater has emerged.
The band has had to sit through an uncomfortable and restless hiatus before embarking on a tour of the country in support of Justin Townes Earle and an appearance at One Movement in WA. After which, the band will be ready to hit the road again to promote their new single ‘Drive All Night ’til Dawn’. This will be the last chance to see Wagons in an intimate, up close and sweaty room before festival appearances over summer at Meredith Music Festival and Falls Festival.
Henry Wagons and band summon the blackest hearts of outlaw entertainers, combining it with the spring in the step and charm of the freshest Vegas showmen. Evoking the spirit of a foggy and dark Wild West, Wagons are preparing to make the floorboards rock and tremble again in your town.
