THIRSTY TO MAKE MORE HITS
HIT THE ROAD WITH NEW ALBUM
AUSSIE rockers Thirsty Merc have burst back onto the music scene after a five-year break.
Last year saw the platinum-selling band celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the release of their self-titled, double platinum, debut LP. After releasing a further two albums with Warner Music and selling more than 200,000 copies, this year the trio decided to go back to its roots by releasing an independent album.
The band’s fourth studio album, Shifting Gears, was released earlier this month after a successful crowd-funding campaign.
Deciding an independent album was the way to go, the band set up a crowd-funding campaign via PledgeMusic, which reached its goal within 48 hours of opening.
The campaign then went on to reach more than 200 per cent of its goal amount before being closed.
The band will tour the country to promote the album, including a stop at Rooty Hill.
The trio will perform a bunch of its classic radio staples like 20 Good Reasons, In the Summertime and Someday Someday as well as songs from their new album.
Promising this tour wouldn’t be one to miss, vocalist Rai Thistlethwayte said: “Being around for over a decade, we’ve got lots more experience than when we started. We’ve also got still got loads of energy, and we want to harness that energy to work hard, around the clock, to continue touring.”
Thirsty Merc will be performing at Rooty Hill RSL on Thursday.
This event is sure to be a sell out so get in early.
Tickets can be purchased from rootyhillrsl.com.au.
