THIRSTY MERC announce Summertime Shifting Gears Tour!

THIRSTY MERC ANNOUNCE

SUMMERTIME ‘SHIFTING GEARS’  SHOWS!

In the past 12 months Thirsty Merc have been one of the busiest bands in the country crisscrossed the nation at least 5 times, done over 90 shows and ran up over 100,000 Frequent Flier miles between them. 
 
With the temperature rising, and Spring and Summer calling, Rai Thistlethwayte, Phil Stack and Matt Smith, with Mick Skelton on select shows, will work their way around Australia once more from now until Autumn, 2017 on the Shifting Gears Tour.
 
Kicking off with a crowdfunding campaign in mid 2015, Thirsty Merc released their new, original album, Shifting Gears, last September and the band immediately hit the road on The Good Life Tour. Several weeks into the tour, the band were rocked by the tragic death of their friend, Shane Cooper and the critical injuries suffered by drummer, Mick Skelton, in a terrible car accident putting a halt to everything.
 
Lead singer, Rai Thistlethwayte, said: “Our hugest thanks to the Aussie Music Industry, the general Music Community, and above all - our Fans - for the support over the last year. Thank you ALL for sticking by us. Life can be so overwhelming and debilitatingly challenging, but it’s through those times that you often experience the most human growth. We’ve got the spirit. And we’re gonna rock these upcoming shows like never before to bring this album home!”
 
Kicking off on 3 October at the Caloundra Music Festival, the Shifting Gears Tour will take the band to Broken Hill and Mildura as well as Swan Hill for the first time, and back down to Tasmania after a long absence.
 
Tickets for the Shifting Gears Tour are on sale now.  For further information on all shows, go to www.thirstymerc.com.
 
Shifting Gears is out now through MGM Distribution
