Today in the ramshackle’s of travelling rock’n’roll, The Snowdroppers are quick to kick up the dust and announce themselves as Gluttons For Punishment. Hallmarked by their quick-witted attitude and shit-hot live performances courtesy of a good ol’ booty shaking, the band have clocked in at almost a decade of making music together; leaving behind many empty bottles, unbalanced recollections and a loyal fanbase stapled in positivity.
After being on the road for a solid three months in 2015, their critically acclaimed record Business struck new and old listeners alike; met with sold out shows across the country including spots at BIGSOUND, Queenscliff Music Festival, and two headline performances in Sydney including Rolling Stone’s Live Lodge (that sold out months in advance). Off the hump of 2015, Gluttons Of Punishment Tour will see a brand new live and visual show, alongside killer tagalongs from The Hard Aches, The Strums and Twin Fires. With a little curiosity, we hit up The Snowdroppers for an imaginary dating introduction; a glimmer into the band’s thoughts on ~love~ and their relationships with one another making noise.
