Great Gable have announced a 13-date national tour in support of their upcoming second album, “On The Wall In The Morning Light”.
The race will begin in Adelaide on October 7, when indie rockers from Perth take the stage at the Lion Arts Factory. They will then travel to Hobart, before taking out a trio of Victorian shows (in Melbourne, Ballarat and Geelong) and four NSW dates (in Coffs Harbour, Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong) throughout the month.
During the first weekend of November, Great Gable will perform in Brisbane, Byron Bay and Maroochydore. They will end with a local show the following Friday (November 11), performing at the Astor Theater in Perth.
The race will be supported by Dice, another indie rocker from Perth, as well as Melbourne soul artist Velvet Bloom. The two openers will have a date – Dice will not appear in Hobart and Bloom will be absent for the Ballarat show. Tickets for all tour dates are on sale now – find them here.
“On The Wall In The Morning Light” is set to arrive July 8 via Matt Corby’s Rainbow Valley Records. So far, Great Gable has released four singles from the album: ‘Hazy’, ‘Another Day’, ‘Our Love’ and ‘Dancing Shoes’. They performed the last triple j song in early June, alongside their Like a version cover of “Fireflies” by Owl City.
Great Gable released their debut album ‘Tracing Faces’ in August 2020. It was featured in NME’s roundup of Australia’s top album picks for that month, with Alex Gallagher writing: “There’s a earnest in what Great Gable does that makes them hard not to find charming, with singer Alex Whiteman’s musings on love, loss and mental health feeling like an authentic snapshot of a period in the life of the band.
