The Dreggs 2024 Australia Tour

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

With their debut album due next month, indie-folk group The Dreggs will embark on a national tour in June.

The duo of Paddy Macrae and Zane Harris have teased the new album, 'Caught In A Reverie' (pre-order it), with the single 'Peeps With The Goods' that showcases the group's new sonic direction incorporating soul and gospel tones into their folk-laced soundscapes.

'Peeps With The Goods' was influenced heavily by Matt Corby, with the man himself playing a pivotal role. "Matt was a huge influence for this track," Paddy explains. "We were given the opportunity to write and record with Corby and this song is the result of that collaboration.

"The song is about the push and pull a lot of independent artists have to confront within the music industry. It's an anthem to those who have experienced equal parts joy and frustration with their career, but also a reminder that persevering is the only way to push through and find that 'happy place', whatever that might mean for them."

Set to host a series of sold-out album launch parties next month, in June The Dreggs will headline concerts in Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, before landing at Splendour. "It wouldn't be a Dreggs show without a sing-along and we've made sure there are plenty of magical moments throughout the set," Macrae reveals.

Building on the sturdy foundations set out by their 2018 debut EP 'Seas Embrace', 'Caught In A Reverie' is The Dreggs taking full, shimmering flight, with 12 songs set to delight, calm and charm. "We are so beyond stoked to finally be releasing our debut album," shares Macrae.

"It's been a long time coming and we are confident that people are going to take something from it. I would be lying if I said we weren't nervous, however, as this is an introduction into a slightly different scope of our songwriting and where it will eventually take us.

"Some of the tracks may surprise some of our listeners but, alas, this is a journey for us as much as it is for our fans and it wouldn't be much of an exciting one if we kept using the same equation.

"The album has a lot of themes of grief spread throughout. That of denial, anger, bargaining, depression and then eventually acceptance. This album is very much a personal diary, showcasing some extremely personal thoughts, feelings, and emotions with the goal to provide listeners with an individual and very raw perspective of grief without judgement.

"Hopefully people will listen to this album and understand a little more of how important it is that we all experience grief as individuals, and that in itself is a good thing."
