TUMBLEWEED / GRINDHOUSE / JELLY MAMMOTH
In '92 Tumbleweed were at the top of the heap following the runaway success of their back to back Eps ‘Theatre of Gnomes’ and ‘Weedseed’ with both topping the ARIA Alternative Charts, their direct signing to Atlantic records in America, and a string of successful tours and supports with acts such as Mudhoney, Nirvana, Rollins and Iggy Pop. Tumbleweed's train was rolling at full steam by the time they released their debut album. The first album produced by US producer Mr Colson entered the national charts at number 12 and spawned hit singles such as ‘Sundial’ and ‘Acid Rain’, which have remained pivotal songs in the Tumbleweed story to this day. Following strong demand on Record Store Day, their self-titled debut album will be made available for a limited time only on standard black vinyl on June 2 via Farmer & The Owl / Inertia. Additionally, a very limited allocation, along with a small number of 'Daddy Long Legs' 7" singles are available to pre-order now. To celebrate Tumbleweed embarked on a National tour through July to promote the release of their debut self-titled album on vinyl, and played the album in its entirety, live for the first time ever. That tour went extremely well so new dates have been added in Newcastle (Cambridge Hotel Sep 15), Hobart (The ‘Tah Sep 22), Wollongong (Yours & Owls Festival Sep 30), Sydney (The Factory with The Pretty Things Oct 3), Geelong (Barwon Club Oct 12) and Frankston (Pelly Bar Oct 13). Don’t miss this opportunity to see Tumbleweed take a trip back to ‘92 and hear what made it such a special moment in Australian rock n roll. Tickets available at oztix.com.au or direct from The BC bar. 18+ event.
