Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever Lock-In Headline Shows Before Peeling Off OS

To celebrate the release of ‘Mainland’ – the first sound from Melbourne collective Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever in twenty-eighteen – the band have confirmed a couple of intimate single launch shows before they peel off on a huge overseas tour.

The five-piece will play at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory on Friday, 6 April before they play in their hometown of Melbourne on Saturday, 7 April at Howler ahead of their huge plans to hit up the US, Canada, UK and Europe for a slew of headline shows and festival slots including Primavera and The Great Escape, as well as previously-announced billings at Coachella and Shaky Knees.

Sharing favourites from both outstanding EPs as well as road testing their brand new material that holds a similar gravity and relentless energy. ‘Mainland’ was recorded in a secluded house in the Northern NSW wilderness, it was initially inspired by a 2017 trip for singer/songwriter/guitarist Tom Russo and a trip to his grandparent’s birthplace of the Aeolian Islands off Sicily.

“I was reading about a refugee crisis unfolding not far away in the Mediterranean Sea. The song is about longing, disillusionment, privilege and holding on to love as a kind of shield.”

Come celebrate the new single and last parties on the mainland. Tickets on sale now.
