It will take place at St Kilda’s Epsy Hotel on Friday 28th May, and feature support from First Nations artist KIAH.
“This show is about big riffs and Reconciliation,” says Thunghutti man and Chasing Ghosts frontman Jimmy Kyle, “We’re super excited to be sharing the stage with Scott and his band and keen to bring together First Nations Peoples, our allies, and those who share our love of big riffs to come out and celebrate Reconciliation Week!”.
Darlow also commented on the show, adding, “…with this year’s theme being ‘more than a word’ I’m really excited to be putting on a show that creates an opportunity for people of all backgrounds to come and stand with us, celebrate our stories, culture and music in an iconic Melbourne music venue … I’m so stoked to be playing a show with two other deadly First Nations bands during National Reconciliation Week!”
It’s been a big 2021 for Chasing Ghosts, who dropped two bangers earlier this year, Bummer and Busted Lung. They will feature on their forthcoming EP, HOMELANDS, set to drop on June 4th.
The band will also appear at First Sounds Showcase this Friday. The event, taking place in Lismore, will feature a stacked bill of First Nations artists. You can catch all details below.
