Last month The Drones announced a national tour to celebrate the 10th year anniversary of their seminal record Wait Long By The River And The Bodies Of Your Enemies Float By.

Earlier this year, the band played a special one off show at the Sydney Opera House for Vivid Live, showcasing tracks from Wait Long, as well as a few new tunes thrown in for good measure.

Wait Long By The River And The Bodies Of Your Enemies Float By will be released on deluxe double 180g vinyl LP with a digital download and it’s own unreleased live album, and this is the first time the album has ever been released on vinyl!

Joining The Drones will be Melbourne doom punk Batpiss, whose recent film clip for ‘The Store’ will give you nightmares for days, and the Steve Miller Band (in Castlemaine and Melbourne only), who will just give you nightmares.

Throughout 2015, as well as releasing their brand new seventh studio album, The Drones will be reissuing their entire back catalog through their own label, TFS Records.
