On the verge of releasing their long-awaited debut full-length album Americana Doom Fuzz, due to hit stores on Friday, 13 April, The Lockhearts are amped to announce their Australian tour dates, plus they’ll be joining label mates and ex-pat Aussies, The Lazys, as they launch their album, Tropical Hazards, worldwide on 4 May, with a run of dates across Germany with shows also planned for Amsterdam and London.
Fronted by Tim Meaco (Vocals/guitar), with Jameel Majam (Bass), Samuel Sheumack (Guitar) and Steve “Woodie” Woodward (Drums), The Lockhearts formed in Sydney’s inner west over a shared love of Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty and hot sauce. They began crafting their signature bell-bottom swagger and delivering explosive performances over an 18-month residency, which began at Sydney’s Brighton Up Bar.
Between recording drums in the stairwell, blowing up vintage amplifiers and selective live tracking to capture the band’s onstage energy, their debut full length album, Americana Doom Fuzz harks back to a golden fertile era when studio exploration/experimentation was young, and embodies The Lockhearts “keep it loose, keep it tight” approach to moody, guitar-driven songwriting.
As they hit the ground running along Australia’s East Coast, then joining The Lazys on the tour bus for an 8 day run from Stuttgart to London, The Lockhearts are about to really hit their straps and rein in a whole new bunch of fans.
