10 Years of THE DRONES

In 2005 a little known band from Melbourne released what was to become one of the most critically acclaimed, celebrated and talked about Australian albums of modern times. Wait Long By The River And The Bodies Of Your Enemies Float By catapulted The Drones into the consciousness of mainstream music critics both here and overseas, and cemented what fans of the band already knew.

In May this year, to celebrate the 10th year anniversary of it’s release, the band played a special one off show at the Sydney Opera House, for Vivid Live, showcasing tracks from Wait Long, as well as a few new tunes thrown in for good measure. The show was met with a vigorous response, two standing ovations, and a feeling that more people might want to experience it, so the band are taking it to fans around Australia this August and September.

Wait Long By The River And The Bodies Of Your Enemies Float By will be released on deluxe double 180g vinyl LP with a digital download and it’s own unreleased live album (you can pre order your copy now from www.thedrones.com.au). This is the first time the album has ever been released on vinyl.

“Let the record show that there is only one band that can open their set with a song that was voted by a group of their peers as the greatest Australian song of all time... That band, ladies and gentlemen, is The Drones.” - Music Feeds

Joining The Drones will be Melbourne doom punk band Batpiss, whose recent film clip for The Store will give you nightmares for days!

Throughout 2015, as well as releasing their brand new seventh studio album, The Drones will be reissuing their entire back catalogue through their own label, TFS Records.

You can catch The Drones at The Small Ballroom on Friday 28th August. For tickets visit www.oztix.com
