Pierce Brothers - Release EP 'The Night Tree' & Announce Tour
Melbourne multi-instrumentalists the Pierce Brothers are excited to reveal that their highly anticipated EP, The Night Tree, will be released on Friday 30 May 2014. To celebrate, the charismatic indie-folk duo are gearing up to hit the road for a huge
11-date tour, spanning capital cities and regional venues across VIC, NSW & QLD.
Twin brothers Jack and Pat Pierce – who boast one of the most exhilarating live shows around – have amassed a fiercely loyal following over the last two years, selling a staggering 20,000 CDs independently.
The buzz band’s swelling fan base is a testament to their compelling collection of hook-laden songs. Building upon fan favourites such as the 2013 single ‘Blind Boys Run’, all five tracks on The Night Tree capture a feeling of universality through creative instrumentation, poignant narratives and stomping, catchy-as-all-hell choruses. Pierce Brothers are back, and in a huge way!
Current single ‘It’s My Fault’ is a worldly tale, a lyrical exploration of forgiveness that builds over a steady beat before exploding into a cathartic, singalong chorus.
The travelling duo are no strangers to the touring circuit, having played shows all over Australia and the UK – collecting new fans in each town they pass. Overseas momentum is building, with ‘It’s My Fault’ currently sitting in the top 100 on the Netherlands iTunes charts and receiving daily prime time radio play on Netherlands commercial giant 3FM – a momentous feat for the local artists.
As well as playing to sold-out crowds at Ding Dong Lounge and Cherry Bar recently, the two-piece have literally stopped traffic when busking in Melbourne’s Bourke St Mall, amassing up to hundreds of onlookers at any given time.
Don’t miss your chance to see the duo before your very eyes before they’re lured back to the throngs in Europe awaiting their return!
