Still flushed from their recent name change and the addition of smashing new drummer Caitlin Thomas, Adelaide's seven-headed rock-hydra WEST THEBARTON are lined up for a whirlwind rest of 2017, joining soul rock faves POLISH CLUB on their national tour throughout December.
West Theb are also right on the edge of letting new tunes spill outta their locker. Reverend Ray and the gang have been committing their suburban homilies to tape, and they're sounding tip top. Jammed with even more charm and excitement than their 'Moving Out' and 'Red or White' singles.
Guitarist/drummer B.B. Bolado prosthelytised, "after releasing 'Moving Out' and completing the debut album, the last six months have been a noisy blur for us and we've never felt better with our live show. It's a good time to jump out of the cold and jump around to some new music.”
Darn it, if these aren't good reasons to throw oneself prostrate at the alter of gritty soul-filled rock'n'roll, we don't know what are. See you at the bar.
