The Bennies have announced an 11 date tour to celebrate the release of Natural Born Chillers. The 11 date run will see the four-piece take to regional and metro hotspots across five states including VIC, NSW, QLD, SA and TAS.
The Bennies kicked off their year in fine form with the release of their new album — which came out on The Smith Street Band’s revered label Pool House Records — in February. The eight-track belter was quickly picked up as Album Of The Week by The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald and garnered a massive 9/10 rating from Melbourne street press, Beat Magazine. The band then toured Europe and the UK with 30 shows in 32 days. The band are primed and ready to hit Aus again with Punk-rock duo The Gooch Palms rapidly up-and-coming indie punk-rockers from Adelaide, Young Offenders, will also join the festivities.
