Bad//Dreems Announce ‘HOO HA!’ Record Store Acoustic Shows
Bad//Dreems announce a full week of acoustic in-store shows to celebrate the release of their fourth album HOO HA! which is out on May 19th via Farmer & The Owl/BMG.
Kicking it off in Bendigo on release eve, the band will then hit Melbourne, Adelaide, Wollongong, Sydney, Newcastle, Byron Bay and Brisbane across release week.
The Sydney event happening at Young Henrys in Newtown will also feature a live recording of their recently launched Hoo Ha! podcast with special guest Fitzy (Nova FM), while Thrills will host a special event in Byron Bay. The rest of the events will take place at some of the country’s leading independent record stores, and also include a Q&A with the band plus signing.
HOO HA!, began its life post pandemic in a small studio in Adelaide, located in a disused neo-gothic incinerator designed by Walter Burley Griffin and containing Billy Thorpe’s old Neve recording desk. “We had a new found appreciation and zest for being able to play together that created the energy of the album,” Ben Marwe said of the experience. The songs were taken to Melbourne and recorded with Dan Luscombe (Amyl and the Sniffers, Courtney Barnett, the Drones) at Soundpark Studio in early 2022. The result epitomises the power of Bad//Dreems, where pub rock meets art-rock and where high and low culture collide to paint a vivid picture of our times.
