City Calm Down Reveal New Dates & Album Details

Aussie's finest Kraut-rock exponents City Calm Down have released the first details of their second album "Echoes In Blue" including new single ‘Joan, I’m Disappearing’ and confirmed 3 brand new headline shows in the UK...

Today Melbourne’s City Calm Down announced details of their sophomore album “Echoes In Blue” which is set for release via I Oh You records on the 6th of April. While we are currently attempting to survive yet another British cold snap,  CCD are playing to festival crowds in the heat of the Australian summer but the signs are good that the new record could be a classic ode to winter. Listen to the new single  ‘Joan, I’m Disappearing’ from the forthcoming LP.

We caught up with singer Jack Bourke for a touch of insight on the album. “Echoes In Blue is not concerned with answering questions as much as it is with asking them. It is interested in the reality of being spread too thin, of being unable to shut out the noise, where we’re told to buy a house, with a mountain of debt, and do what we love, to be passionate and driven, whilst also making enough time for our wife or husband, boyfriend or girlfriend, for our children, parents and friends. Has life ever been more exciting or more artificial? Why are we so connected yet feel so alone? Perhaps, in all this excitement, we forget to be bored and examine ourselves a little more closely. Or maybe we should just embrace the rage.”

Our ears are still ringing from  the band’s headline performance on the TicketWeb stage at The Great Escape’s First Fifty Festival but the news of 3 extra UK dates is more than welcome. Check out the band’s full UK & European schedule below…
