West Thebarton

8PM Saturday, 15th June 2019

Tonight sees West Thebarton in Rosemount Hotel's main room, with support from Supernaked, and A Swayze and The Ghosts.

Reading, Leeds, Pukkelpop, national Living End tour, triple j's Like A Version, ARIAs, India, Falls, Big Pineapple..... Yeah, West Thebarton are feelin' pretty wrecked right now. It's unsurprising then that their brand new single 'Tops' is a plea for respite centring on that very phrase.

'Tops' details a malignant mental exhaustion, too. As the good Reverend Ray explains, "This song is about those times in your life when you know you should feel so fucking good about yourself, but all you can focus on is negative." Been there, done that, Rev.

'Tops' is a real rock anthem. And yes, people use the term 'anthem' liberally. But West Theb sure know how to pen a slow building ditty that rips into an explosive singalong.

You can bet your bottom dollar there'll be some shouty moments on the 'Tops' tour, too. The band have announced they'll run the gauntlet from Adelaide to the Gold Coast this winter in support of the new single. They might even throw in a rendition of their Florence and the Machine 'You've Got The Love' cover, which conveniently features on Side B of the limited edition Tops 7" (available to pre-order now).

Tasmania's incredible A Swayze & The Ghosts will join them on the seven date jaunt. Dunno how they all fit in the van but you best believe that after this long on the road, the band is real good at tetris.
