The Beards Announce ‘The Beard Album’ And National Tour

Australia’s premier hair-related exports, The Beards are returning to centre stage with a brand new album, along with the most comprehensive Australian tour the band has ever embarked upon. The Beard Album: Australian Launch Tour will traverse almost every corner of the country the band has visited so far, as well as new territories and a first ever trip to New Zealand.

“We’ve convinced a lot of people to grow beards over the years,” claims vocalist Johann Beardraven. “Now, not only do we get to check how their beards are going, but with our new ultra-catchy beard-related tunes, we’re confident that we’ll be able to inspire a whole new level of beard-growing, right across the country.”

Since the release of their highly-acclaimed, ARIA-nominated third album Having a Beard Is The New Not Having a Beard, The Beards have embarked on multiple sold-out Australian tours, sold out shows in Canada, the UK and Europe, performed at SXSW in Austin, cracked Triple J’s Hottest 100, been nominated for APRA Song Of The Year, all the while growing and grooming their beards to impressive new lengths.

“Our previous albums were pretty beardy, but we just felt they didn’t quite fully sum up our affinity toward beards” explains bassist Nathaniel Beard. “Now with this new album, we feel like we’ve finally released what will probably go down as the most pro-beard album in history.” The Beard Album and its extensive tour promises to cement The Beards’ place as one of the most energetic and fuzzy live acts hitting Australian stages this year.

The Beards will kick off their Australian and New Zealand tour this May after charming audiences in their triumphant return to Bluesfest 2014.
