THE PREACHERS, THE MESSENGERS,HOUNDS HOUNDS HOUNDS
With a live show more reminiscent of a religious cult and old school influences to boot, The Preachers' brand of hardworking rock n’roll has made them one of Sydney's most respected young bands. After releasing their self-titled EP in early 2010, the band began work on The 66 Project, an initiative that saw them in collaboration with local artists, designers and filmmakers to release free demos for six months. In that time they have supported and worked with acts like Blitzen Trapper, The Cranberries, Black Cab, Ratcat, Cameras, Gin Wigmore, WIM, Phrase, Papa vs Pretty, Belles will Ring, and Guineafowl. In September 2011 they travelled to LA to record their second EP Shaking Hands at The Bank, a private studio owned by renound drummer Joey Waronker (Smashing Pumpkins, Elliot Smith, Beck). The first single Take A Card has completely overtaken Australian airwaves, hitting high rotation on triple j, and scoring the band triple j Unearthed Feature Artist. The song also reached #9 most played track on triple j, proving that classic rock & roll is alive & well. After playing to packed houses with The Cranberries, Gin Wigmore and Blitzen Trapper in April 2012, The Preachers are looking forward to embarking on their own tour in May 2012 to celebrate the release of Take A Card, with a video directed by Rat Cat’s Simon Day. On Friday 25 May they play an introductory show in Melbourne, at Yah Yah’s with special guests The Messengers and Hounds Hounds Hounds. This show is free entry, so come check them out.
