THE BASICS "AGE OF ENTITLEMENT" ALBUM TOUR WITH SPECIAL GUESTS
Internationally acclaimed Australian trio The Basics (Wally De Backer, Tim Heath & Kris Schroeder) will tour Australia-wide through October and November to celebrate the release of their first studio album in six years, The Age Of Entitlement.
The Basics are known for their incredible live performances, described as "a high energy, musically outstanding and genuinely fun show from start to finish". The Age Of Entitlement national and regional tour kicks off in Maitland, NSW and the band will perform 17 dates around the country, including the Foxtel Festival Hub, Melbourne Festival, ending the tour in Mornington, Victoria in November.
Support acts will be announced at a later date.
The Basics have always defied definition, their songwriting spanning a multiplicity of genres, often at once, including blues, rock, folk, country, rockabilly, pop, blue-eyed soul and ska. That approach is evident on The Age Of Entitlement, which was released last Friday, and has received acclaim from critics and fans alike:
