Wagons have announced their first full band Australian national tour in over three years to celebrate the upcoming release of their new album Acid Rain and Sugar Cane, out May 16.
As well as their home state of Victoria, this tour also incorporates visits to Tasmania, Western Australia, South Australia, ACT, New South Wales and Queensland and the Northern Territory spanning May and June.
Acid Rain and Sugar Cane follows Henry Wagons’ 2013 release Expecting Company that featured duets with Alison Mosshart, Robert Forster and more. The new full band effort is claimed to be Wagons’ ‘most ambitious and broad-reaching album to date.’ It is co-produced by Mick Harvey.
Joining the tour ( for NSW, ACT and VIC shows only) is Tennessee’s own ‘singing cowboy’ Jonny Fritz, exclusively invited by Wagons.
