As The Audreys prepare to spend June and July traversing the country, playing their acclaimed new album ‘Til My Tears Roll Away’ live, the Adelaide based duo of Taasha Coates and Tristan Goodall have also unveiled plans for their live set, guaranteeing they’ll play the blues-rock-folk tinged ‘’Til My Tears Roll Away’ album in full, followed by audience requests from their first three albums! They are asking fans to leave a message on their Facebook page, specifying exactly which of the older material they’d like to hear live.
The ‘’Til My Tears Roll Away’ national tour represents the first time in more than three years that Taasha and Tristan have played live with a full band, on such an extensive level. The 2014 line up includes Shane O’Mara, axe man extraordinaire and producer of all four The Audreys albums. Truth be told they’ve been asking him to tour with them for years and this is the first time he’s said yes! Rick Plant, ex-Nashville player and former Buddy Miller band member will be on bass, with longtime drummer Ben Wiesner joining them again.
They will also make a limited edition ‘Monsters EP’ available exclusively for the shows. Compiling all four versions of their track ‘Monster’, including the previously unreleased ‘Monster Part IV’, the package also features a stunning hand pressed, hand drawn cover from multi-award winning illustrator Luke Jurevicious.
Known for graceful, impassioned live performances and ramshackle impromptu covers, as well as their playful banter and disarming charm, The Audreys have earned a considerable reputation as one of Australia’s finest live acts.
