Here's some exciting news for BALL PARK MUSIC FANS...

In celebration of an amazing three plus years on the road, culminating next month with their Thanks Ewes National Tour, Brisbane outfit Ball Park Music re-release their highly acclaimed sophomore album “Museum” with a bonus live disc.

Like many bands before them, Ball Park Music started out cutting their teeth on the local circuit around their home town.  With the 2011 release of their highly acclaimed debut album “Happiness and Surrounding Suburbs”, and a swag of triplej supported singles, the band set off around Australia, steadily building an army of live supporters. Stellar performances at last year’s Splendour in the Grass, The Falls Festival and most recently at triple j’s One Night Stand Dubbo extravaganza, only served to increase the bands reputation as a live act not to be missed.

Within a year of the release of “Happiness and Surrounding Suburbs”, the band delivered their follow up album “Museum”. The album was equally well received by fans and media alike, spearheaded by “Surrender”, which had already been a live crowd favourite. The album debuted on the National Aria chart at No 9; propelling the band back out on the road, playing to bigger venues and more fans, in support of the already much loved new material.

Heading into their final headlining tour for the year, the band will have racked up an impressive 230 odd shows in what seems like an impossibly short space of time.  In recognition of the fans support over this period “Museum” will be re-released Friday 7th June featuring a bonus disc containing 8 live tracks.

The live set was recorded at Sydney’s Manning bar in February 2013. With over 30 minutes of music, including material from both albums, it’s the perfect taste of the band’s energetic live performance, and the ideal warm up music to the Thank Ewes June/July Tour.
