Adelaide’s West Thebarton recently released their debut album, ‘Different Beings Being Different‘ via Domestic La La, and now comes the tour dates to launch it.

Joining them will be Sydney’s Pist Idiots. The first leg this week has them in Wollongong, Sydney, Newcastle and Melbourne. Full dates below.

In 2016, the band forged themselves into our consciousness with their self titled EP, support slots with the likes of Bad//Dreems, Cloud Nothings and more, plus appearances at BIGSOUND and Groovin’ The Moo.

Reluctant to take their foot off the gas, the band tore right into 2017 adding new drummer Caitlin Thomas to the fray, and releasing their single ‘Moving Out‘. An ensuing industry scuffle landed them a management deal with Fidelity Corp (Karnivool, Thelma Plum), and shortly after, self proclaimed super-fan James Tidswell of Violent Soho signed them to his new label, Domestic La La.

Backing things up with the release of ‘Bible Camp‘, the band capped off their bumper year with a neat run alongside Polish Club, and sets at the Falls Festivals.

Committed to tape over just one week, between day jobs, West Thebarton’s debut album was recorded with Dylan Adams; tracked at Twin Earth Studios in Adelaide’s southwest, and mixed at Adams’ own studio in Coogee, NSW. Greg Calbi then mastered the record at Sterling Sound Studios in New York City.

Frontman Reverend Ray describes the the new LP as;

real Aussie straight-from-the-gut rock. I wanted the record to be fucking grandiose, like INXS or Midnight Oil, but not try and be a pub rock cliche.

Listen to the album now below.


These will be their only headline shows before skipping across the pond to play Reading & Leeds.
