KINGSWOOD RELEASE NEW ALBUM & WILL BE HEADING TO NEWCASTLE’S CAMBRIDGE HOTEL – WEDNESDAY, MARCH 29TH
ARIA-nominated, Melbourne rockers KINGSWOOD, have released their bold and daring, second album ‘After Hours, Close To Dawn’ into the world via Dew Process.
KINGSWOOD released the first taste of this new music in October last year. ‘Creepin’’ – the first since the release of their 2014 top 10 ARIA debut album Microscopic Wars. The song was described by triple j as, “a smoky bait-and-switch that draws you in with moody guitar and vocalist Fergus Linacre’s soulful growl before broadsiding you with dirty, leather-scuffing riffage,” and was added straight to the station’s playlist, and went on to place #48 in the triple j Hottest 100 2016.
The band’s second official single, ‘Golden’, which again premiered on triple j’s Goodnights with Linda show, exposed a completely new side of their music in a move that both surprised and delighted critics and fans. The song saw the band trade in their trademark big riffs and vocals, and in their lay down a grooving bassline, beautiful falsetto harmonies, and a tinge of Wurlitzer that all combine into a sound that will lead you to see KINGSWOOD in a whole new light.
‘After Hours, Close To Dawn’ was named in Rolling Stone Australia’s 50 Most Anticipated Albums of 2017, as well as The Herald Sun’s Biggest New Albums in 2017, and sees KINGSWOOD move to the frontline of innovators in Australian music. It mixes compelling R’n’B grooves with soaring rock & roll, garage soul and space-age experimentation. It’s an eclectic collection of music, but it’s all connected by the defining element that is the trio’s creative DNA. No matter what shape they take, these songs are still instantly recognisable as pure KINGSWOOD.
KINGSWOOD’S ‘After Hours, Close To Dawn’ tour will hit The Cambridge Hotel on Wednesday, March 29th. Joining KINGSWOOD on the night will be special guests Brisbane vibe-punks WAAX, Tasmanian artist Maddy Jane, with her rollicking, indie-pop as well as Melbourne thrash-punk quintet Batz.
