Ladies & Gentlemen Please Welcome ‘Laura’

I don’t put much music stuff up on here cause hey most sites do it way better than me but I couldn’t not write about this amazing Australian band LAURA. I can’t believe they are releasing their third album!! Where was I for the last 2?

Here’s the press release for the new TOUR!!!!!

To celebrate the release of their third album, TWELVE HUNDRED TIMES, Melbourne five-piece, LAURA continue their national tour in 2012 and return to Adelaide and Perth.

Late last year, the band released the first two tracks from the album as a double a-side 7 inch, MARK THE DAY & THIS GREY EARTH. Dark, moody and complicated, the release gained significant critical attention with ‘Mark The Day’ being named Single Of The Week by both Beat Magazine and Inpress in January 2011, with Inpress saying the track was, “… enough to darken the sun at midday.”

This was followed by a successful east coast tour to launch the album along with national support for Japanese band BORIS. Laura now round off the tour with shows in Adelaide (on Sat 26th May at JIVE) and 2 shows in Perth (Sat 9th June at The Rosemount and Sunday 10th June at Mojo’s, Fremantle).

As intense as it is delicate, the music of Laura is sure to leave a mark on all who hear it. This is a band not to be missed.
