The Bennies are excited to announce their forthcoming record Natural Born Chillers is out Friday 2 February via Pool House Records / Remote Control. To celebrate, the band have shared first cut 'Get High Like An Angel' which premiered last night on triple j's Good Nights, and have announced a national single tour.
Of today's announcement, Pool House Records share: "Today we'd like to give a big, warm welcome to The Bennies to the ever growing Pool House Records family. They're four of the best friends, biggest party animals, most skilful musicians and kindest individuals you could hope to meet, and we're very proud and excited to have the opportunity to release their music!" - Chris Cowburn (Pool House Records / The Smith Street Band).
It's been a wild time since the release of Wisdom Machine in 2016. The band landed their hit 'Party Machine' at #88 on the triple j Hottest 100, supported heroes The Living End, released a song with Damian Cowell, toured 3 times around Europe, completed a tour of Japan and sold out venues all across Australia. WILD.
They've since swapped jets for studio sweat and Natural Born Chillers was born. The album captures the extreme live energy the band has made a name for itself on, and features some of the most energetic, powerful and quirky songs in The Bennies catalogue to date. Lyrically and sonically it's their most focused and mature work, but still manages to maintain the fun and enthusiasm that has built their fan base worldwide.
Recorded with Sam Johnson (The Smith Street Band, The Hard Aches, Camp Cope) the album fuses dozens of genres and is a testament to how the band thrive despite existing completely outside of current musical trends. This is the first record from The Bennies to be released via Pool House Records, The Smith Street Band's label.
Be ready to crack a cold one, The Bennies are soundtracking your summer, performing tracks from Natural Born Chillers on an epic thirteen date national tour this November and December, hitting capital and regional cities across Australia. Enlisting The Sugarcanes and The Cutaways on support, join The Bennies live, at a city near you, and 'Get High Like An Angel.'
In the meantime...CORRUPTION!!!
