In a cramped studio deep in Bushwick, New York City, Aussie veteran rockers You Am I hunkered down to make a start on their tenth studio album.

The forthcoming cheekily titled Porridge & Hotsauce is a head-rush of rocking tunes tempered by songs that stretch beyond mere rock ‘n’ roll tomfoolery, showing off every element of Tim Roger’s genius songsmithery.

The first taste from the album is ‘Good Advices’. A rollickin’ rock number, it’s pure grass roots Oz rock n’ roll with Rodger’s raucous vocals played out over thumping percussion and head-banging fret work.

As You Am I fans know, the band’s most natural setting is on the stage and no album release would be complete without a tour to accompany it. During October, November and December this year, You Am I will play shows across the country, hitting all states and performing in both Capital cities and regional areas – the tour dubbed, ‘The Bargain Bin Bon Vivants’.

The Delta Riggs bring their genre bending disco rock to Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide opening, with supports for all other shows to be announced soon.
