With the highest-selling Australian single for 2014 so far, and clocking up seven weeks at #1 on the Australian radio airplay charts, indie pop superstars Sheppard have returned to the airwaves today with a stunning new single 'Something’s Missing', lifted from their debut album ‘Bombs Away’.
The Brisbane hit-makers have also announced all-ages album launches in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane with special guests New Empire to celebrate their success with fans.
"This year has been such a whirlwind and it was important to us that we take the time to get out there on the road and celebrate our album with the fans," said George Sheppard. "The release of a first album is an important milestone for any band and we’re just so happy that we can celebrate it with the people who have made it all happen for us.
Earlier this year, their smash hit ‘Geronimo’ spent three weeks at #1 on the ARIA charts, breaking the record for a run at #1 from an independently distributed Australian artist, with their success resulting in their signing to Decca Records for the world outside of Australia and a special invitation to join Keith Urban on his Light the Fuse" tour where the band will play to over 70,000 people throughout June.
The album 'Bombs Away' will deliver eleven slices of the band’s trademark sound including the near triple platinum 'Geronimo', last year’s double platinum breakthrough ARIA nominated hit 'Let Me Down Easy' as well as the new single 'Something’s Missing'.
Sheppard emerged from Brisbane in 2012 and features siblings George, Amy and Emma Sheppard along with friends Jay Bovino, Michael Butler and Dean Gordon.
With chart success, support from Keith Urban, Justin Bieber's manager
, a new single and a tour, it seems like nothing's missing.
