Event Details

After selling out the national tour that saw their return to the stage in 2018, beloved Aussie band Motor Ace are back to celebrate twenty years of Five Star Laundry - the landmark album that catapulted them on to the global music scene, today announcing a 20th Anniversary re-issue set for release November 5, alongside a Five Star Laundry 20th Anniversary tour for 2022. The tour will kick off at Freo Social on June 10, before hitting Badlands (Perth), The Triffid (Brisbane), The Factory Theatre (Sydney), The Cambridge Hotel (Newcastle) and The Gov (Adelaide), before finishing up with a hometown show at 170 Russell in Melbourne on June 24.

Tickets go on sale at www.livenation.com.au at 1pm local time Friday October 8, with a Live Nation 48 hour presale live at 12pm local time Wednesday October 6.


The Five Star Laundry 20th Anniversary Edition will be available as a limited edition red 2LP vinyl and a 22-track expanded digital edition which includes bonus tracks from their Live At The Chapel performance in 2003. PRE-ORDER HERE.


Five Star Laundry, when it’s said and done, is Motor Ace,” explains the band’s frontman Patrick Robertson. “As you’d expect from a bunch of twenty year olds, perhaps it lacks a little sophistication here and there. But for me, Five Star Laundry truly captures on record, the ‘all-in’ energy and the desperation of four guys trying to make a mark. It was our first record and we didn’t take it for granted, we knew it may be our one and only opportunity. The first record has an advantage over the others - songs are written over a longer period of time and can be fine tuned at live shows. But also, the songs are free from the burden of expectation. And this is true of the excitement and naive energy of this record. We poured everything into it without distraction or second guessing ourselves. I think this is the main reason it has stood the test of time and resonates strongest with fans of the band.”

 

Thrilled to be honouring the milestone, Robertson says, “For us, it’s a privilege to be able to play these songs to a willing audience after twenty long years since the release of the album, and we can’t wait to finally reunite with you all after a hard of a couple of years.”


With a rich musical history spanning over twenty years, Motor Ace’s debut album Five Star Laundry went gold within the first month of going on sale in Australia.  After that massive feat, the band spent many months on the road touring and making music, with massive supports slots alongside Foo Fighters, Oasis and Blink-182.  You couldn’t turn on the radio without coming across Motor Ace; and as sold out shows became the norm, their tracks became a mainstay on the ARIA charts.  Their timely sophomore album Shoot This was released in 2002 to abundant critical acclaim.  It spawned lead single Carry On that held the coveted #1 most played song on Australian airwaves for 8 weeks in a row, and Shoot This, debuting at #1 on the charts and achieving gold sales on release.  


Motor Ace is Patrick Robertson (vocals, guitar), Dave Ong (guitar), Damo Costin (drums) and Matt Balfe (bass).


Five Star Laundry 20th Anniversary edition is set for release November 5 and available to preorder now.

Tickets to the Five Star Laundry 20th Anniversary tour go on sale from www.livenation.com.au on Friday October 8 at 1pm local time.
