Cog 2024 Australia Tour

Cog tour Australia March 2024.
Our eclectic team of writers from around Australia – and a couple beyond – with decades of combined experience and interest in all fields.

Stalwarts of the Australian prog-rock scene, Cog will treat their fans to inaugural vinyl pressings of two of their acclaimed records – 'The New Normal' (2005) and 'Sharing Space' (2008) – as well as a run of national dates in 2024.

After an extend contract dispute with their former label, earlier this year Cog regained control of their music allowing the decision to pursue vinyl records for the aforementioned titles (which were both nominated for a J Award) as well as an extremely rare first pressing of their 2008 compilation album 'Just Visiting'.

Recently owning the stage at Thrashville 2023 in the Hunter Valley, Cog will return to tour life next March headlining shows in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane, Newcastle, Canberra and Sydney.

"Earlier this year we reached a milestone of sorts," shares Cog's Flynn Gower. "In 2008 we delivered our album 'Sharing Space' to our label.

"Unfortunately, our relationship deteriorated during this period and for the next 15 years we've been locked into a contract and waiting for resolution.

"We can finally say that we now own the rights to all our music. In celebration of this and after many years of inquiries from our fans we can announce that both 'The New Normal' and 'Sharing Space' are available on vinyl and an east-coast tour is booked."

Available exclusively through Rare Records, these albums will be pressed on 3x 180g vinyl, housed in deluxe triple gatefold sleeves, with a range of variants on offer.

While the 'Just Visiting' first pressing is a rare promo-only copy that features the word 'RARE' written in gold paint, a 420g gatefold jacket and two transparent red and green (one of each) 190g virgin vinyl records.

Set to be released from late January, early February, you can pre-order here.

Tickets are on sale.
