The Melbourne rockers have seen it all – and they’ve poured those experiences into their boldest and most ambitious release to date. Today the band announce that they’ll take their fourth album, 'More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me' on the road taking with them explosive Californian pop-punks Joyce Manor, Melbourne mates Ceres and indie-pop sensation (and USA SideOneDummy label mate) Allison Weiss.
“For this tour we’re playing the venues that we have always dreamed of playing, we chose big beautiful theatres because we want these to be big beautiful shows! We've also expanded our show in order to fully bring these songs to life, this tour is our most ambitious, exciting one yet,” said lead vocals, Wil Wagner.
The band said 'More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me', the new record from The Smith Street Band is at times dark, ferocious and heavy, while also being joyful, cheeky and full of the underdog spirit that made the band who they are. This record embodies the cohesion and growth shown by the band both musically and lyrically. Known for their breathless touring schedule the album was pieced together in the stolen downtime between their famously frenetic live shows.
On top of Wil’s growth and development as a songwriter the band are in powerful form after years of consistent touring. They have expanded their unique sound to fit in choirs, string sections, even synthesisers and electronic drum kits.
