Hello dear friends!
It's been a while so I thought I'd catch you up with all the happenings in the Mean Reds camp!
2013 was a cracker year full of adventures and we finished up the year with a spot in Basement Discs' Top 10 Australian Albums of the Year as well as Unpaved's 50 Best Albums of 2013! Such a delight! We had a ridiculously fun summer of gigging, relaxing and hanging out in Hobart for MONA FOMA and now 2014 is bringing exciting adventures all round. While Grant and I have stuck it out in the city, Ben has spent the last month on tour with The Stray Sisters, selling out venues all over the country. Josh has been overseas and back several times and is in the process of releasing a new project with Yuko Nishiyama... a beautiful album that you should all check out!
Our darling friend, Tilman Robinson has launched his incredible album Network of Lines and we were very proud to be in the audience at the Melbourne Recital Centre when he launched that baby!
As for what is coming next, we've been busy writing new material and planning ideas for a new album at the moment. I spent a lovely weekend holed up in a house in Daylesford, demoing new tunes and compiling ideas for album number two and we'll be spending some serious time fleshing these ideas out in the coming months! We'll be playing some of these new songs at upcoming gigs over the next few months.
Thanks you all so much for your continued support!
Hope to see y'all at a gig real soon!! Take care!!
