Australian music duo Busby Marou is set to perform at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre in August as part of the Blood Red album launch.
ARIA-winning Tom Busby and Jeremy Marou refer to the sound of Blood Red as their “bread and butter” and said they were excited to return to the Bundaberg Region to perform.
“We love Bundy,” Tom said.
“(We have) plenty of good memories playing footy, fishing, partying and playing gigs.
“It’s been years since Bundy has been on our tour schedule and we were not missing out this time.”
Tom said when visiting the Bundaberg Region there were a few things they liked to enjoy when time allowed.
“We don’t often have too much spare time on the road, but we love to sneak a trip to Bargara and always knock down a couple of rums,” he said.
With Busby Marou's fifth studio album Blood Red set for release on 21 July, the musos have announced a stacked national album tour with 15 dates across the country.
“We’re bringing the A-Team; a full band and awesome crew to step up the production from previous shows in Bundy,” Tom said.
“We’ll be belting out all the older hits, some new releases, and maybe even a few acoustic surprises.
“We just want to create a memorable experience and connect with everyone.”
Australian storytelling on show
Busby Marou have gained the reputation as one of Australia’s hardest working live bands, best known for their distinctly Australian storytelling and gifted musicianship.
On stage a key element is the intertwining of vocal interplay of two lifelong mates.
Thee Rockhampton duo have already earned staggering success, which includes three Top 5 albums, four APRA Awards and a swag of APRA and ARIA nominations.
The pair are determined to embrace both the experience they’ve gained over their career and the maturity they’ve found in their personal lives to create an album to reflect their true musical selves.
“We’ve gone from being green and not quite ready to knowing what we want we want and co-producing this album,” Jeremy said.
“The main reason we’re still here is because we’ve always stuck to our song writing method, which is just a couple of blokes with two guitars and melodies telling stories,” Tom added.
“We haven’t overthought it. This time in particular, we backed ourselves.”
Busby Marou's fifth album is gearing up to be their best release yet with singles Conversation, Crazy Like That, Where I Wanna Be and Everything is Beautiful being just a taste of the beautiful body of work to come.
Blood Red will be the Busby Marou’s first full-length project since 2019's highly successful The Great Divide.
Joining Busby Marou on the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre stage is rising star singer-songwriter Jem Cassar-Daley.
The Red Blood tour includes Gladstone, Bundaberg, Yamba, Gold Coast, Adelaide Melbourne, Brisbane, Coffs Harbour, Thirroul, Sydney, Newcastle, Rockhampton, Mackay, Cairns and Townsville.
