We are really excited and happy to announce that we've been included on this years lineup for 'OUT ON THE WEEKEND 2018' thanks to BT and the folks from the Love Police on the 13th Oct. An absolutely fantastic lineup once again by the team that have been putting this event together and hosting it over the last five years. Held at the spectacular Seaworks down in Williamstown, Victoria. Check out our Events page for more or go to the Out On The Weekend website for full details and ticket info.
Hey ho folks. Yep, we're in one of our quiet modes lately, kicking back and dealing with life you know how it goes but we've been busily working away in the background on a bunch of projects for the months to come and later this year. Firstly, we're super excited to be performing live again 'tonight' actually back in Bendigo thanks to the warm return invitation by Dani Fry and the team from the 'House of Music', this time in the new digs of the Miners Tavern kicking off from 8pm (see our event page for tickets or grab them at the door).
Next we'll be announcing a short term residency happening again..... in April and yep, you guessed it, back at one of our favourite venues in town, The Gem. We can't wait. Full details to be included on the site shortly.
Then...... (drum roll please)...... we'll be officially announcing the completed European Tour lineup for late July into August for 2018. Just awaiting some final confirmation and details of a few more shows then we'll be letting you all know where and when you can catch us overseas, so spread the word to your friends in the UK, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Denmark and the Nederlands (possibly France too!). Stay tooned for more exciting updates to come.
'LYING LIPS / HAVE YOU SEEN MY BABY TONIGHT' are the next single releases in the series.
The band is buzzed once again to keep rolling out these new singles they've recorded at Los Bomberos studio with the help of David M. Turner esq. at the helm adding creative input with production and twiddling the knobs (or keys). The next two tracks are coming out again on a Double A Sided 7 inch vinyl that will include an insert sleeve containing the lyrics of boths songs.
The Rechords have drawn on many influences from the Americana genre with particular roots in the golden tones of the 1940’s, 50’s & 60’s. The stripped back line-up of acoustic and electric guitars with an upright bass allows their rich three-part harmonies to shine through while ensuring the rhythm is still upfront and strong.
“Lying Lips” sees the Rechords tap back into their vintage country roots to lament the dangerous temptation of alluring beauty everywhere. 'Those lips are only lying to you...' the high harmonies cry '...they won't only break your heart, they'll ruin your mind'!
“Have You Seen My Baby Tonight” is a teen-rebel anthem of being restless and pining for that special someone. Lush 3 part harmonies paired with a desperate rock'n'roll tone accompany dramatic lead vocals from both Leo & Felix.
These are songs written and delivered with authenticity from a group taking their music in an exciting new direction. In coming months, on top of local release parties for each subsequent Double A side record the trio are also in the middle of scheduling their next European Tour for late July-Mid August 2018 to promote their new music overseas.
In addition to each limited release 7" record, digital downloads will be available through the SHOP page on this website.
'Lying Lips/Have You Seen My Baby Tonight' launching at ‘Heartaches & Hangovers’ at the Thornbury Theatre on Saturday 11th November. Click here for full show details
