GREAT GABLE ANNOUNCE
HEADLINE TOUR FOR
THIS OCTOBER – NOVEMBER
Following a whirlwind national tour supporting Matt Corby last month, West Australian favourites Great Gable have today announced a headline Australian tour for this October – November. The five-date run will see them kicking off in Fremantle, before hitting up Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide. Tickets are on sale now HERE.
“Our new EP “Read The Room” is out now, and to celebrate we thought we’d revisit some of our favourite venues across Australia. Some of our funnest shows have been in these intimate pubs and we can’t wait for a trip down memory lane.” Says the band.
The tour comes in support of the release of their new EP “Read The Room” which sees the Perth four-piece collaborating with Matt Corby and Alex Henriksson, and features five dreamy, jangly indie rock anthems that is a return to the carefree sound of their early years. Listen HERE.
With a pared back sonic palette, “Read The Room” bottles the lightning of what makes Great Gable such an electric musical presence. On the bouncing and wry “Pumpernickel”, they channel early 2000s Brit rock. While “So Cool” gives a hat-tip to The Strokes, and “Til The Sun Comes Up” offers a moment of pause sonically and lyrically.
ABOUT GREAT GABLE
It’s been a steady and relentless rise for the Great Gable – made up of Alex Whiteman (vocals), Matt Preen (guitar), Callum Guy (drums) and Christopher Bye (bass) – who began jamming together after meeting at university in Perth. Alex and Matt were childhood friends, drawn together with a mutual love of artists like Jack Johnson, Bon Iver, Noah And The Whale, and The Kooks. It didn’t take the four of them long to gain attention: early EPs like 2016’s Gg, 2017’s Modern Interactions, and 2019’s Lazy Bones Tapes brilliantly collided early 2000s NYC rock and UK indie, with a fair whack of Australian summer thrown in there for good measure. It was a gripping combination, and the band quickly earned a devoted fan base, who would pack out venues as the band crossed the country and New Zealand on numerous tours.
By the time their debut album Tracing Faces arrived in 2020, Great Gable had already amassed millions of streams. They went on to grace the stages of festivals like Groovin The Moo and Falls Festival, and notch up a stack of enviable support slots with the likes of The Jungle Giants, Thelma Plum, and Ocean Alley. 2022’s On The Wall In The Morning Light was written and created during the suspended animation of COVID lockdowns. Spearheaded by hugely successful singles such as ‘Hazy’ and the exhilarating ‘Dancing Shoes’, On The Wall… launched the band into another level..
