The band will play a slew of dates come Spring in support of third studio album ‘Astraea‘ – out now through their own Destination Moon label. Joining the band for the shows will be chaotic Wollongong act Totally Unicorn as well as Melbourne post-hardcore outfit Stockades.
Vocalist/keyboardist James Spence had the following to say:
"As far as we’re concerned, it’s been long overdue that we return to Australia and we’re delighted to have the opportunity to come back and play a more extensive tour following the trips we made across in 2010. Since we were last over, we’ve had two new members join the band and released a new record called ‘Astraea’. We can’t wait to play this new set of songs for you and to show our new guys Nathan and Chris that Australia is one of the best countries to play shows in in the world."
