The Dead Leaves with Gus Rigby and Jon-Lee Farrel

Tickets $12 + BF from Oztix / $15 on door

After an hiatus spent reassessing what it means to be a working band in an ever-changing musical landscape – and nearly two years on from their last release – The Dead Leaves acquired a studio space in the heart of Melbourne and began work on their second album. They return to play their first show back at The Gasometer Hotel on Thursday 23 October (with support from Gus Rigby and special guests) and bring with them an album’s worth of new material to complement the lush textures of their debut ‘Cities On The Sea’. Their sound still blends the sonic diversity of Joy Division and the Smiths through to the bittersweet laments of Johnny Cash but their new material exhibits a freedom that comes only from reflections of a road well-travelled.
