15 years ago, Thirsty Merc bounded onto the music scene with their Summertime sounds, making their mark on radio and TV over the ensuing years and to celebrate this milestone, the band are heading back out on the road on their Take Me Back Tour kicking off in Brisbane on 2 November.

Thirsty Merc formed in Sydney in 2002 releasing their debut EP, First Work, in September, 2003, before being signed to Warner Music.  The band’s big break came in 2004 with the release of their debut, self titled, album which included the hits, Someday Someday and In The Summertime (the theme for Bondi Rescue since 2006).

Two more studio albums followed – Slideshows in 2007 (#4 ARIA Album) and Mousetrap Heart in 2010 (#14 on the ARIA Album chart) which included radio staples, 20 Good Reasons, Mousetrap Heart and Tommy and Krista

Fast forward to 2015 – Thirsty Merc released Shifting Gears, their first wholly independent and first new material in five years and spent the next few months crossing the country; running up thousands of Frequent Flyer points and sold out shows.

Besides the hits, the Take Me Back Tour is a celebration of all the music along the way and fans can expect to hear songs they’ve never heard the band perform live before.

Lead singer, Rai Thistlethwayte, said today: “It’s thanks to the fans that we’re still here, loving life and music, 15 years later and this tour is a big “thank you” to everyone who’s sung along with us over the years, as well as a great opportunity to dust off some songs we’ve never included in our shows”.

Tickets for Thirsty Merc’s Take Me Back Tour shows are on sale at 12.00pm local times today.

Shifting Gears is out now through MGM Distribution
