The rising Aussie indie-rockers Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have just released ‘Time In Common’ from their Hope Downs album, as well as announcing their biggest headline tour to date. The Hope Downs World Tour will see the Melbourne outfit traverse the globe across four months including a date at Concorde 2, 23rd October.
Earlier this year they hit the sweet spot with one of the most talked about performances at The Great Escape. The album title, taken from the name of a vast open cut mine in the middle of Australia, refers to the feeling of, “Standing at the edge of the void of the big unknown, and finding something to hold on to.”
Tom Russo, one of the band’s songwriters says about the album, “We were feeling like we were in a moment where the sands were shifting and the world was getting a lot weirder. There was a general sense that things were coming apart at the seams and people around us were too. The songs on this album are like a collection of postcards about wider things that were going on through the lens of these small characters.”
