Australian 90s legends Tumbleweed have announced a SuperGalactaphonic tour of all tours, kicking off in August taking them nationally playing tracks from their classic 1995 release Galactaphonic.
Back in 1992 Tumbleweed released their debut album of the same title, off the back of its success the band skipped off to the US, Europe and the UK, and then infamously supported Nirvana on their 1992 Australian tour and criss-cross Australia playing countless dates.
1995 saw Tumbleweed release the epic Galactaphonic album on Polygram. The album debuted at #6 on the ARIA chart and saw the band appear in the lounge rooms of the mainstream via TV performances on Hey Hey It’s Saturday and Denton. Propelled by four and five gigs a week and a subsequent single ‘Armchair Ride’ alongside fan favourites TV Genocide, Nothing To Do With The Weather, the album enjoyed a six-week stay in the ARIA top 50 and now enjoys sales of over 30,000 copies, cementing Tumbleweed as one of the hardest-working and most-loved bands of the era.
Fast forward to 2015 – Galactaphonic has become ‘SuperGalactaphonic’ with a reissue this August 7th, accompanied by the Galactaphonic 20 tour. The reissue collects the original 13 track album and expands to a 34 track celebration.
“Out of a tumultuous storm in the craziest of times Galactaphonic was like trying to bottle a wasp nest. But we had it, and in comparison to the first record I thought this one was vibrant and electric, dangerous and sweet. Every waking hour was about the band, we soaked up everything around us, mixed it up in our whirlpool and channelled it into the album” – Singer Richie Lewis remembers.
Galactaphonic – the original album will also be released on vinyl for the very time too, so grab your pre-order now!
