Lepers & Crooks EP Launch
Hot off the heels of May release 'Let You Go', Lepers & Crooks are showing no signs of slowing down, today announcing the release of their highly anticipated follow up single, 'Reflections'. Dripping with attitude, swagger and a riff big enough to build a house in - this is a track that demands to be played loud. It's rock in its purest, least bastardised form.
The 2nd taste from their forthcoming and most intoxicating EP to date, The Heathen Circus was produced by Jeff Martin at his 'River House' studio, a secluded musical retreat owned by The Tea Party frontman set on 100 acres just outside of Byron Bay.
It's been a meteoric couple of years since Lepers & Crooks first came together. Hailing from Sydney's inner west, they quickly garnered a reputation as one of the city's must-see live acts thanks to their electrifying stage show, non-stop touring and intelligent, emotive songs. The five piece took to touring their hard-hitting brand of funk rock around Australia, tallying up an impressive 250 shows over two years - a feat that led them to be dubbed one of Australia's hardest working bands and earning them praise both locally and internationally. Signings to date include Ian Huffam from X-Ray Touring UK (Blur, Robbie Williams, Courtney Barnett & Nick Cave), Scotty McKenzie from Premier Artists (AUS) and Chris Murphy's Murphy Music Publishing alongside INXS.
No strangers to the road, Lepers & Crooks will release The Heathen Circus EP on Friday 30th September and back it up with a national tour through October & November.
