The Bennies Return!


Has there been a Bennies shaped hole in your life lately? Never fear, The Bennies are coming back.

After being almost everywhere earlier this year and travelling the globe with an endurance and enthusiasm ordinarily exclusive to a college freshman on Ritalin. After being dubbed a ‘must-see’ on 2015 Soundwave Festival, The Bennies nailed triple j’s Like A Version which backed on to Golden Plains which lead into their Party Whirlwind tour which left an indelible mark on everyone’s hearts and livers.

The Melbourne four-piece have emerged from a brief break to bring their Australian fans a tour just in time for summer. The tour will include appearances at Psyfari, then playing the biggest event on the Melbourne punk rock calendar Poison CityWeekender, the band will join Less Than Jake and Reel Big Fish on their East Coast Australian Tour in early October.

To finish up they’ll be heading to the USA to visit old friends and fans at Florida’s Fest. Then they’ll commence a headlining tour of Australia with mates in The Hard Aches and Wet Pensioner. This is no metro city run. Hobart, Bunbury, Ballarat, Cairns and Darwin are all invited to this veritable puff-puff-give of good music and loose times.
