After taking a large part of 2015 off and almost calling it quits, The Bon Scotts’ love of performing and writing has thankfully been renewed. Which will be music to the ears for the many friends and fans they’ve made since forming back in 2010.
That energy and re commitment to the cause has seen the band inspired to return to the studio, where they remain bunkered down – writing a new record, due for release in March 2017.
But you won’t have to wait until then to hear something new from the Melbourne 6-piece new folk outfit.
‘Main Street’ is the 1st single from The Bon Scott’s upcoming new album When I’m Lonely I Still Think Of You, and will be launched with a free home-town show at The Spotted Mallard on July 16.
The video for ‘Main Street’, shot by the band, was made from footage taken at the Coburg Race Rally on Saturday 28th May 2016. The song looks at the anger and violence from both sides of the fence, examining the need for conversation and empathy instead of name calling and ignorance. Main Street asks the question – “Can either side be part of the solution when they often seem to be the root cause of the problem?”
Recorded at lead singer/guitarist Damien Sutton’s own Cubcave Studios, ‘Main Street’captures the band’s frenetic live energy, with sweet mandolin, dancing drums, gritty and driving bass, and comes complete with The Bon Scott’s trade-mark raucously infectious sing along vocals.
Come catch The Bon Scotts in all their live glory at the launch of Main Street!
Saturday July 16 @ The Spotted Mallard – 314 Sydney Rd, Brunswick.
With special guests Matt Glass & James Maloney
Doors open at 8pm, and entry is free!
The track is available from Bandcamp, iTunes and Spotify.
