Last July we holed up in Samford and recorded our 8th album FIVE ROOMS.
It was recorded in lockdown at Airlock Studios with producer Anna Laverty (Courtney Barnett, Camp Cope). Mixing is by US engineers Beau Sorenson (Superchunk, Bob Mould) and Travis Harrison (Guided By Voices, Built To Spill).
We recorded it like we used to: 12 days, non stop, everything finished in the one session. There are 12 songs, with an even writing split between Tim & Kellie.
We’re so happy to be able to have recorded again.
Pre order the album here, and get tour tickets for our JUNE tour!
We’re super sorry to have to announce that we’re cancelling all our interstate tour dates in September and October. With borders closed between states, it’s just not possible to come and play for you.
We are so disappointed. It breaks our hearts to have to cancel a national tour for the second time.
Assuming we are allowed, we’ll still play the Zoo show in Brisbane. All other shows – please contact you ticket issuer for a refund (Oztix or Moshtix).
Thank you to all the bands who agreed to play with us, we’ll hit you up next time! Huge thanks to our management Alien Lane and booking agent Raida Artists, and to Jane and Scott from Sound As Ever for their support.
We’re still busy: our new album is being mixed – we’re thrilled with how it’s turned out. There’s a podcast, a book and a documentary in the works.
It’s no compensation for not seeing you.. it’s been too long, we’ll get there eventually. In the meantime – get vaccinated, look after yourselves and your friends and family, and know that are so grateful to everyone who bought a ticket, a T-shirt or a record. We’ll give it another try in 2022.
We were lucky enough to get chosen as Double J’s Artists in Residence for September. We got to play 8 hours of music.
Brisbane indie rock favourites Screamfeeder leap into Double J’s Artist In Residence chair this month, giving us an insight into their brilliant music knowledge and sharing tales from their long life as a band.
Tim Steward and Kellie Lloyd have delivered us infectious, powerful indie rock for almost 30 years now. This series of Artist In Residence shows will offer us an opportunity to hear the music that inspires and drives them.
Across the four weeks of September, the band will delve into their collections to play music they love. We’ll warn you, they are huge music fans who both worked at record stores in the 90s, so they’ll be going pretty deep.
If you want an idea as to what kinda stuff they’re into, consider this: they have named every episode after a different Hüsker Dü song…
Rest assured there’s plenty of other great stuff as well, as they play tracks from their favourite records from the 2000s, the albums they were obsessed with when they were young, and the music they missed the first time around but have since rediscovered.
They’ll also spin stories from their long and decorated career in indie rock, a career that has seen them travel the world, playing and befriending some of the most influential bands around.
Join them on Sunday afternoons for two hours of music, coming direct from Steward’s home studio.
We were lucky enough to be invited to Ian Haug’s studio Airlock in outer Brisbane, during the lockdown in May.
We performed 8 songs for the session: Ice Patrol, Sonic Souvenirs, Domino, Lost in the Snow, Stopless, The Space That’s Left, Sushi Bowl and Around a Pole. It was hard, but fun..! Cheers to Ian and the crew who filmed and recorded us, they did a kick-ass job!
