Dynamic shit-pop duo The Gooch Palms are celebrating the arrival of 2017 with the announcement of further dates for their recently commenced national tour. The outfit has added additional dates in Canberra and Ballarat to add to their mammoth live music venture, which touches down in major cities over January and February.

Sweetening the news is the release of a bareback cover of Silverchair’s ‘Tomorrow‘, recorded stateside during a studio rehearsal at LA’s Studio G.

“We were mucking around in rehearsal one day in LA and Leroy just started playing the beginning of ‘Tomorrow’ out of the blue. We were coming back to Australia for our album tour so we thought it could be cool to pay a “Goochies style” homage to the band that inspired both of us growing up as a couple of ratbags in Newcastle. We were both big fans of Silverchair and it was so crazy seeing three kids from our hometown get so big all over the world and definitely lit a fire inside both of us to give music a crack! So we played it live on that last Aussie tour and it went off so after we got back from Europe we decided to pop into the studio with our Euro tour buddy Unkle Funkle (who is not only a super talented singer and musician, but a killer producer/engineer) in Los Angeles and record it before we came back to play all our Aussie shows for the summer! So here it is! Hope y’all enjoy it!”
