You Am I tenth studio album, Porridge & Hotsauce, was recently recorded in Bushwick, New York City, and will be released on the band’s own label on November 6.
The first taste from the album is ‘Good Advices’, a song that lead singer/songwriter Tim Rogers says was inspired by reflecting on their previous work.
‘A few years ago when we were given the opportunity to look back at some records we had done a while back,’ says Rogers. ‘Whilst it was a blast, havin’ a peak behind us only compelled us to leap foolishly into the future. ‘Good Advices’ is about throwing away the script and clinging to your imagination as the only guide. We’ve trusted our wits so far, and if it got us here, this hopped up and rarin’ to go, our wits done good.’
As You Am I fans know, the band’s most natural setting is on the stage and no album release
During October, November and December 2015, You Am I will play shows across the country in support of their new album ‘Porridge & Hotsauce’, hitting all states, and performing in both Capital cities and regional areas. The Delta Riggs will be the support in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, with supports for all other shows to be announced soon.
