The Smith Street Band
Plus The Bennies & Shit Present

Australia’s The Smith Street Band have announced their first UK of 2017 for June and July, culminating their headline UK stint with this special show at The Garage in London.

Wil Wagner (vocals / guitar) says of the forthcoming trip: "We are so fucking excited to be coming back to play shows in Europe! We'll be doing a handful of mainland shows, hitting up huge festivals like Hurricane and Southside. We're also gonna be doing our most extensive tour of the United Kingdom yet! We're thrilled to have our actual best friends from home, The Bennies joining us for the entire tour and our great mates Shit Present coming along for the ride on the UK shows! ! cannot wait to play our new songs live and we also cannot wait to see all of youuuuuuuuuu!"

‘More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me’ is the band’s forthcoming fourth album which will be released in the UK via Specialist Subject and in mainland Europe by Uncle M Records on 7th April. The eagerly awaited follow up to 2014’s breakthrough album, ‘Throw Me In The River’, was written while the band traversed the globe playing music and making friends in countless countries. From enormous festivals like Reading and Leeds (UK), Groezrock (Belgium) and Splendour in the Grass (Aus) to stageless squats across Europe and American dive bars, the Smith Street Band have seen it all and they’ve poured those experiences into their boldest and most ambitious release to date.
