British India returned from Berlin earlier this month with album number five written, recorded and ready to be mixed. Lucky ticketholders at The Rolling Stones’ Hanging Rock and Hope Estate shows will be amongst the first to hear the new single from their upcoming fifth full-length release, as well as tracks from 2013’s Controller (out now through Liberation Music) like ‘Summer Forgive Me’ and ‘Blinded’, and selections from their illustrious back catalogue.
The band received their first ever gold record for hit single ‘I Can Make You Love Me’ earlier this year – a long time coming for four Melbourne school friends who have achieved three ARIA Top 10 album debuts, multiple ARIA and J Award nominations, five entries into triple j’s Hottest 100 and the AIR Award for ‘Best New Band’ over the course of their impressive career. British India will be wrapping up the year in style, taking the stage just before The Rolling Stones at Hanging Rock and opening proceedings at the Hope Estate show.
Before even releasing their debut album, Sydney five-piece The Preatures have played mind-blowing sets at Glastonbury, Bonnaroo, Splendour In The Grass and Coachella, performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live, received a bevy of awards and an ARIA nomination, and have a gold-certified single to their name. This October, they can add supporting The Rolling Stones to this list as they kick off the fun at Hanging Rock and follow British India at Hope Estate.
The past eighteen months have been massive for the band; starting with breakthrough hit ‘Is This How You Feel’ which earned the band first prize in the Vanda and Young Songwriting Competition, ‘Best Rock Song’ in the International Songwriting Competition and the #9 spot in 2013’s triple j Hottest 100. Toe-tapping singles ‘Better Than It Ever Could Be’ and ‘Two Tone Melody’ followed suit, seeing the band pick up both local and international acclaim.
The future is looking even brighter for The Preatures, having confirmed this morning that their highly anticipated debut Blue Planet Eyes will be released on September 26 2014 through Universal Music. Make sure you catch them at The Rolling Stones’ Australian outdoor shows to get a taste of the ‘delicious grooves, hip-hugging basslines and choruses that just won’t quit’.
