Double Vision… Whether it’s the ill-effect of your favourite contraband, the dilemma in choosing which twin to date, or the stupefying joy of seeing your first set of perfect tits, we’ve all had it at some point.
Like morning glory, that feeling is coming 'round again, with the announcement of dual Melbourne rockers The Delta Riggs & Money For Rope hitting the road this August for the Double Vision Tour.
Kick-started by the release of Counter Revolution & the corresponding Pyramid Rock Unearthed win late last year, The 'Riggs have toured relentlessly, with appearances at Festival OF The Sun, Queenscliff Music Festival & Gumball + tours with The Jim Jones Revue (UK), Devin (NYC) and Stonefield.
Following the release of Talupo Mountain Music Vol. II in late May and the subsequent EP release tour, The Delta Riggs have enjoyed a well-earned breather over the last month or so, whilst frontman Elliott Hammond made the most of this free time - moonlighting as an ivory tickler with prized Aussie exports Wolfmother to massive European festival crowds.
With new-found vigour, The 'Riggs are set to take their erratic & high-intensity show back on the road, this time with rock & roll accomplices Money For Rope.
Hot on the heels of "This Epic Tour" with Kingswood and Damn Terran, Money For Rope are used to transforming crowds into an exuberant force on par with the band's own rabid vigour, including those at Cherry Rock, Community Cup and Splendour In The Grass in 2011. With triple j smashing album singles Ten Times & Misery Lane, their jaw-dropping energy of two drumkits, two guitars, a bass, four voices and keys seems a perfect fit for the brash exuberance of The Delta Riggs.
Throughout the Double Vision tour, The Delta Riggs & Money For Rope will exchange the headliner role inviting crowds to get down early for a solid night of heady rock & roll indulgence.
