NORTHEAST PARTY HOUSE ANNOUNCE 'CALYPSO BEACH' NATIONAL TOUR



Melbourne’s Northeast Party House today announce a national run of shows in support of new single ‘Calypso Beach’. The tour, presented by triple j and Select Touring will see the band take their critically acclaimed high-energy live show around the country this May/June. The tour news comes just weeks after the band was announced on hit regional festival Groovin’ The Moo – with Maitland, Bendigo and Canberra already sold out and remaining dates selling fast.
Joining the band in all capital cities (excl. Perth) for the ‘Calypso Beach Tour’ will be Perth indie pop duo Mosquito Coast, plus special guests in each state.
Calypso Beach is the third single to be lifted from Northeast Party House’s highly anticipated and critically acclaimed sophomore album ‘Dare’ and follows up radio hits ‘For You’ and ‘Heartbreaker’.
Front man Zachary Hamilton-Reeves explains the song…
“I wrote the chorus vocal in the car park of Wet’n’Wild after being inspired by the ride 'Calypso Beach' and the feeling of being stuck in cycles. Calypso Beach explores being in a moment and letting go, allowing something else to take control.”

Listen to ‘Calypso Beach’ below:


Northeast Party House
 will also be part of Fremantle’s ‘Sets On The Beach’ and South Gippsland’s ‘The Hills Are Alive’ festivals in March.

BALL PARK MUSIC ANNOUNCE NEW SINGLE ‘NIHILIST PARTY ANTHEM’


Ball Park Music are back! It’s been a short hiatus for one of Australia’s most loved acts, and now the band is ready to announce new music.

Fans were treated to a special surprise in the form of a wild and hypnotic video for the teaser track ‘Pariah’. The sprawling and jammy 7:11 opus is the epic first cut from Ball Park Music’s new album, due for arrival mid year.

Now Ball Park Music are excited to unveil the first official single from said new album - ‘Nihilist Party Anthem’. 

Front man Sam Cromack had this to say about the song.

"'Nihilist Party Anthem' is kinda like the antithesis of 'It's Nice To Be Alive'. This song is saying, 'Hey, look, I'm getting older now and I'm finding life to be weird, depressing, awful and pointless. But what can you do? Let's just kick back and enjoy it for what it is (it's terrible btw)'. I remember reading about Nihilism in high school and thinking it was super dark and cool. Then I forgot about it for a while. Recently I discovered this page called Nihilist Memes and it's hilarious. It's a new anchor for my sense of humour. I like laughing at death, at misery, at all things foul. When I say, 'Life is awful' I don't see it as a selfish statement that pertains only to me; I see it as a shared thing. I am sharing this awful life with everyone. I'm a cat in a cowboy hat and this is my Nihilist Party Anthem".

'Pariah’ and ‘Nihilist Party Anthem’ are the first new pieces of music from the band since 2014’s hugely successful album Puddinghead – an album that scored them an iTunes # 1 and an ARIA # 2.

The new music also arrives just in time to coincide with the band’s latest Sold Out 2016 tour.
