Having conquered Australia’s Boogie Festival back in 2014, where they blew everyone away with their harrowing transcendent rock 'n' roll show, Strand of Oaks are returning to Australian shores with a new album in tow. The album is titled ‘Hard Love’ and is the band's 5th studio album and is released 17th February via Dead Oceans / Inertia. It includes the track ‘On The Hill’, which the band explains is a psychedelic, celebratory homage to their three days in the excesses of Boogie Festival in 2014. True story!
Joining Strand of Oaks on tour are elusive New Yorkers Endless Boogie. When it comes to Endless Boogie there’s no point in making comparisons to other musical prophets because at the end of the day it’s the sonic stats left on Endless Boogie’s page of the Rock & Roll Almanac that tell their story. These guys are no strangers to Australia, having toured the country in 2011, played Golden Plains in 2013, and most recently played Boogie Festival last year where their set was so well received, they were asked to play it twice that weekend. This time around the band have a secret weapon and occasional member Matt Sweeney (Zwan / Chavez) joining them on tour. The band will also be slipping out prerelease copies for sale of their new long player ‘Vibe Killer’ at the shows. Six new jams of gold.
