Country rockers The Wolfe Brothers are hitting the road in 2015 for their Nothin’ But Trouble tour and are kicking the tour off in January with a very special guest, Aussie rock legend and Rose Tattoo front man Angry Anderson. After an impromptu performance together at a charity event earlier in 2014, Angry and the boys resolved to join forces again. The Wolfe Brothers January tour dates, including their show at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, proved to be the perfect opportunity for that wish to come to fruition.
In recent months, Nashville heavyweights have been collaborating with their rock n roll counterparts to create an incredible partnership of country-roots-rock. One recent example is former Nirvana drummer and now head Foo Fighter Dave Grohl teaming up with the Zac Brown Band for several memorable performances. Modern country and rock genres seem to effortlessly combine, giving a new vibe to some classic hits. It was only a matter of time before this unique collaboration of rock and country made its way to Australian shores. With The Wolfe Brothers live shows well reputed for their high energy performances, these shows with a bona fide rock legend are guaranteed to be high voltage and unforgettable.
“It’s no secret that we like to rock our country and we’re very excited to have the original bad boy and Aussie rock legend joining us on this one,” says Nick Wolfe. “I think it’ll push some boundaries and challenge some traditional ideals, but hey, that’s just what we do”. With their new album Nothin’ But Trouble riding high in the charts, fans can expect a new re-energised show. “We’ll aim to push our usual 110% energy levels to 120% and make this special event with Angry a night to remember – for us and the audience.”
The Wolfe Brothers experienced an incredible year in 2014. The release of their second long-player Nothin’ But Trouble has seen their music searing up the charts and winning them the hearts of a whole new legion of fans. The album burst onto the ARIA Country Chart at #2 and entered the ARIA mainstream chart at #16. The first single from the new release – That Kinda Night – smashed into #1 position on both country radio and the CMC video charts. It’s no surprise that their latest album was so warmly received by Australian audiences, after all, their debut It’s On rocketed through the charts, firmly cementing the band as one to watch.
The band are the first to point out that they couldn’t have achieved so much if not for the backing of the Australian public. “This past year has been a dream,” says Nick. “From recording and releasing the new album to the countless shows right across the country, we’ve been blessed with the support of our very loyal and dedicated fans. To see our new music being embraced the way it has is astounding, and it only makes us want to work harder and be better at what we do.”
Already 2015 is looking like a massive year for Tasmania’s favourite sons. With two nominations at the 2015 Golden Guitar awards; Group or Duo of the Year and Single of the Year, and tour dates kicking off at the start in January, the band will be looking forward to a rockin’ Tamworth Country Music Festival. As for the rest of the year, it looks huge! “We’re gonna play as many places as we can, write the best music we can and keep being ourselves cos that’s what has got us this far,” says Nick.
