New age riffed-out Rock ‘n’ Roll, The Southern River Band play The Vanguard in June.

The Southern River Band has well-earned its reputation as the future of modern Australian Rock ‘n’ Roll. Between electrifying passion in their nationally touring live show, a 2022 W.A.M. Rock Band of the Year award, and has supported major acts like The Darkness, Grinspoon, Wolfmother, Amyl and the Sniffers, as well as performing at festivals such as Groovin The Moo and Splendour XR.

The loveable larrikin personalities and perfectly crafted songs, are broadcast again this week in the release of their latest single Streets Don’t Lie.

A song about the unraveling futures of old school mate rascals, they pack their signature sound into a riffed-out, diesel-soaked single. Featuring strutting guitar riffs and vocals that ooze swagger, this latest single serves everything that fans have come to expect.

“Do you ever wonder what happened to the people you went to school with that were, ah… ‘disciplinarily challenged’? Well this song takes a deeper look at how it may or may not have panned out for them, with the names removed to protect the guilty. Why? Cos The Streets Don’t Lie.” ~ The Southern River Band

The Streets Don’t Lie was recorded in their hometown at RADA Studios. The track was mixed by Dan Carroll (Carla Geneve, Spacey Jane, Grievous Bodily Calm) & mastered by Grammy Award-winning Australian sound engineer William Bowden (Gotye, Spacey Jane, Kylie Minogue) at King Willy Sound.

The Southern River Band will be touring the country once again in support of The Streets Don’t Lie arriving in Sydney to play The Vanguard 8 June 2023.
