Pierce Brothers

The Pierce Brothers

ON THE back of the release of their latest single Back End Roads, Melbourne folk-pop duo Pierce Brothers have embarked on a world-wide tour stopping in at Tanks Arts Centre on Friday the 16th of August.

The single is the first taste of new music that will be featured on their upcoming full-length debut
album, Atlas Shoulders, set for release on October 26.

Featuring drums reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac’s Dreams, and a chorus embedded in the Australian folk realm, Back End Roads is destined to be an instant live-set fan favourite.

Talking about the single the brothers reminisced, “We wrote it about our favourite place on earth, Wilson’s Prom, and how it was when we grew up there.

“It’s a summer vibe tune plain and simple. About getting away from the grind and a throwback to the more mellow summer anthems that dominated our youth.”

The album was created over the past year whilst touring Australia, Europe, South Africa and America.

Bringing together the stories of experiences and influences they’ve had on the road, the album also deals with prevalent social issues such as anxiety and depression.

Having established themselves as a figurehead of the folk, blues & roots community in Australian and abroad, the band have toured relentlessly – honing their craft and gaining fans across the globe as they go.

Their music has grown over the years and has seen the release of two Top 10 ARIA EPs (The Records Were Ours and Into The Dirt), which received over 7 million global streams (1.7 million in Australia since Jan 2015), as well as over half a million YouTube views.
