After months of relentless gigging across Victoria, Melbourne’s Dover Island return with a new single, dubbed ‘Bad Advice Club’ – and it’s safe to say, don’t take any of the advice in this one.
Amid a whirlwind 2019, playing sold out shows with rock acts from across Australia, Dover Island have become an in demand heartbreak-party rock act. Their first ever release, a debut EP called Participation Award, and its accompanying single ‘Casey’ took them to new heights, and was met with rave reviews, left, right and centre.
triple j’s Declan Byrne called it “punk-tinged goodness”, while the youth broadcaster’s very own Claire Mooney said the track ’17’ was “Rough, punchy and made to be played LOUD.”
With a new member, Holly Ditchfield [lead guitar, backing vocals] in tow, the band have spent the last year perfecting their raucous live show. Now, the rockers make their return with the brand new track ‘Bad Advice Club’ – a relatable, emotional and sad party-inspired anthem.
Kicking celebrations off are some of Dover Island’s favourite homegrown local acts – Forever Renter, Sprung Bad and Barely Conscious – in what’s set to be an all-ages party to remember at Melbourne’s all-ages hub – Wrangler Studios.
Tickets are on-sale Monday 14 September from 6:00pm, and are extremely limited.
