“Vice City II” leaves no doubt that as one of Australia’s premiere live acts, The Southern River Band are more than able to translate that raw power into the confines of the studio, producing one of their most inspired singles to date.
When The Southern River band released “Vice City 1” back in 2018, their reputation as a wild rocking outfit was only just starting to spread around their home state, since then their sophomore studio album Rumour & Innuendo and tours with the likes of The Darkness, Cold Chisel and sold out headline shows right around the country have proven that Aussie rock is in the safest of hands.
“Vice City II” finds leader Cal Kramer and The Southern River Band exercising their expansive song writing chops, railing against the confines of genre and creating a future classic in the process. Guitar harmonies, massive hooks and totally off the chain solos are just a few of the sights and sounds travellers will encounter on their journey into Vice City.
Cal Quote Here – “Man, picture this – Peak lockdown, the virus takes hold, doesn’t let go. Hang on a minute, that’s it! It needs to grab you from the word go, then not let up till it’s finished. That’s Vice City II. We should put that in the press release’
The Southern River Band launch Vice City II with two WA shows, at The Prince of Wales in Bunbury on the 28th of May, then at The Ravenswood Hotel on May 29th.
