In a statement, frontman Iva Davies spoke about how ‘Great Southern Land’ came about, saying: “I had a classic Australian outdoor childhood, racing through the endless grass paddocks behind our house, building billycarts to race down Willans Hill, swimming in the river, and picnicking high up on the Rock, where the countryside stretched away for miles on all sides.

“That landscape became part of me, emerging often in my music and lyrics, most especially in ‘Great Southern Land’.”

Tickets will be released at different times and dates for each show, spanning from Monday October 25 to Friday October 29. Check the band’s official website for sale dates on each show.
