Scene News: The Dandy Warhols Announce: Distortland Tour Australia

In 1994 a groovy little band outta Portland, Oregon burst into life they were calledTHE DANDY WARHOLS. There were a group of friends who needed music to drink to. For the last two decades, THE DANDY WARHOLS have solidified themselves as a veteran rock act that combine a detached garage rock cool with effervescent pop melodies, creating a sound that has been described as Portland’s answer to Brit-Pop.

’one of the best shows of the year, or at least one of the most freakin’ e-p-i-c” – The Dwarf

THE DANDY WARHOLS return to Australia thanks to & in support of their latest album, DistortlandDistortland was first recorded in frontman, Courtney Taylors basement on an 80s cassette recorder with the band putting on the finishing touches in a studio. Jim Lowe – best known for his work with Taylor Swift and Beyonce – mixed the album.  Courtney notes that the end result is an album that is organized like a pop record but still has the sonic garbage still in there. This will be Australias first chance to hear new material live and in living colour. Speaking to Mixdown Magazine, frontman Courtney Taylor spoke about the upcoming Australian tour, We love Australia! Its part of our family, its part of our body.”
