Waifs 25th Anniversary Tour!


To celebrate and commemorate the group’s 25th anniversary, The Waifs will be hitting the road for a mammoth national tour, and are releasing their fourteen track studio album, Ironbark, a double album, along with 11 bonus tracks making a rousing collection of 25 songs, to celebrate 25 years. Recorded in true Waifs style in a make shift studio in the unfinished kitchen of Josh Cunningham’s rural retreat on the NSW South Coast across two weeks.

From today, Tuesday January 10, The Waifs will be giving away free download bonus songs each week until the official album release on March 3rd.

Ironbark will be available for pre-order at a very discounted price from their website from Thursday February 12 and from various retail outlets for the first 25 days of release as a gesture of thanks to fans. There will also be ticket and album bundles for all headline concerts available (visit thewaifs.com for details).
