Before the hangovers from their massive national tour with Dune Rats, Ruby Fields and Dear Seattle have even subsided, TOTTY today announce their own national headline tour alongside news their hotly awaited sophomore EP ‘Garden’ will be released on the 8th of May through Ratbag Records/BMG.
The Garden tour will take in Sydney, Wollongong, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide this May and June and the band can’t wait to hit the road, saying “We’re so excited to have our very own headline tour to show yas the new songs and rock as hard as we can. We’ve been working on these songs for a long time and we cant wait for you to hear them and sing them with us.” Joining them on all shows will be punk-rock duo Debbies who are celebrating the release of their latest single ‘Waking Up In LA’.
Last year the Wollongong shed-rock three piece lifted the lid on the first single from the EP in ‘Lucky’ which resonated with radio. It was swiftly added to rotation at triple j and sat in their Top 50 Most Played for a month, ultimately reaching #13. They then completed their own headline tour full of sold out dates, and fronted the camera for an Aus Music Month shoot with General Pants. The second offering came at the end of last month with the release of ‘Fairies’, a loud and more grungier track showing of their raucous energy.
Never ones to shy away from the tour van, TOTTY have played alongside names like SKEGGS, Hockey Dad and Slowly Slowly as well as the festival stages of Falls Festival, Yours & Owls, Fairgrounds, Farmer and the Owl and Grow Your Own ensuring they know how to enthral a crowd – and they will this winter.
