The Southern River Band sign with Cooking Vinyl Australia & release new single ‘Vice City III’


Exploding into view all over the world at the end of 2023 after being featured on every music lover’s favourite YouTube series ‘Justin Hawkins Rides Again’, the rest of the world is starting to see what Australia has known for quite some time – The Southern River Band are the real deal.

Hailing from Thornlie in Western Australia (Where? Exactly), SRB has spent years on the road and in the air, taking their full-throttle live show to anywhere with a stage and a bar, leaving thousands of fans grinning from ear to ear, night after night. From sold out national tours, playing with Aussie legends such as Cold Chisel & Rose Tattoo, through to supporting modern day rock icons like The Darkness and Eagles Of Death Metal, SRB never fail to raise their own bar.

With the release of their 6-minute epic Stan Qualen in September of last year, the band kicked into a whole ‘nother gear, charting in 23 countries worldwide and announced their first ever International Tour that sees them play 38 shows in Australia, The UK and Europe, gracing the stages of festivals such as The Great Escape, Vestrock, Sweden Rock Festival, Rock Werchter and Down The Rabbit Hole to name a few.   See UK/European dates below.

After freshly signing a deal with Cooking Vinyl Australia, the band – Cal Kramer, Dan Carroll, Pat Smith & Tyler ‘The Hawk’ Michie – are gearing up for by far their biggest year yet, with the release of their new single ‘Vice City III’ (out today) and a record to follow later in the year.

Of the label signing, Cal says “We are absolutely fucking stoked to be joining the legends at CVA, good people doing good shit, ya can’t ask for nothin’ more. We can’t wait to conquer the world with them, one song at a time!”    A sentiment that is equally shared by CVA.

To put it in layman’s terms – The Southern River Band never fail to deliver.
