The Growlers are set to return to Australia next month for their biggest run of headline shows to date and have announce that they will be bringing some very special friends/fiends from the Los Angeles underground along for the ride. Starcrawler will make their live Australian debut and join The Growlers for all twelve dates along our golden coastline in what is destined to be a travelling circus of mayhem and madness. The Natural Affair tour kicks off on January 4, stopping in most big centres and surf breaks across QLD, NSW and VIC.
Starcrawler ('I Love LA'), is a band possessed by the spirit of its own hometown of LA, every movement charged with a primal and manic electricity. The band just released their remarkable second album 'Devour You', a record that dynamically captures the essence and aggression of their gloriously unhinged live shows.
Australia is the first leg of The Growlers mammoth 2020 lap of the globe which so far includes some 50 headline dates scheduled across the UK and Europe plus North America and Mexico with MORE shows and major festivals still yet to be announced. The tour celebrates The Growlers recently released sixth proper studio album Natural Affair which includes their gloriously twisted new single 'Social Man' and is out now via the band's very own Beach Goth Records and Tapes.
The Growlers' lead singer Brooks Nielsen recently spoke to Beat about the fast approaching tour and why they keep coming back to Australia year after year "It really feels like our early shows when we were at home. Just [that] surfer kids' scene, a lot of DIY house parties, young kids, it really feels similar in Australia. And rowdy," Nielsen said. "We've done this for a long time and I just wanna keep it interesting, keep it weird and keep it entertaining for our fans. I want them to count on it."
