Tex Perkins & The Dark Horses Australian Tour Tix on Sale Now

“Think of it – six mighty men of rock who like to roll tobacco/snares/home, each taking a back seat when they need to, practically doing a Victorian-era “After you, my good man,” when only a slide guitar is needed, or a shimmering organ or a lightly-shaken tambourine.” Herald Sun

Tex Perkins has shown us many faces over the journey.

Front man for the evocative soundscapes of The Cruel Sea and the hard edged pub rock of The Beasts of Bourbon, collaborator on the Tex, Don and Charlie outings, and compadre to Tim Rogers on the TnT project.  More recently seen leading the Tennessee Four in a night of memorable music in his turn in the Johnny Cash musical The Man In Black, Tex is now back once again to the mysterious moody groove of Dark Horses, returning this October / November with a new LP, Everyone’s Alone and a select run of tour dates in support.

Everyone’s Alone is the follow up to 2011’s Tex Perkins and the Dark Horses self titled debut. Beginning life as primarily Perkos backing band The Dark Horses have developed a sound and style distinctly their own “this record has more of a band feel to it and less of a singer songwriter trip” says Perkins ” so it felt like the right time to present the Horses as one unified entity”.

The live set promises, as always, to be something special. Perkins’ world-weary growl will showcase songs from the new album, alongside gems from their Black Cattle Dog.

Join Tex Perkins and fellow Dark Horses – Charlie Owen, Joel Silbersher, James Cruickshank, Stephen Hadley and Gus Agars as they come together to snake their way along the East Coast, playing some of the finest tunes your ears will hear in 2012, joined by one of Melbourne’s most affable songsmiths Mike Noga (The Drones) to support.

Recorded and Mixed by Roger Bergodaz at Tender Trap Studio, mastered by Steve Smart at Studio 301
produced by Tex Perkins and the Dark Horses.
