Epic indie quartet Cameras will tour the East Coast of Australia during July 2012 in support of their debut LP In Your Room out now on Speak N Spell through Inertia.

Following the success of their first single ‘Defeatist’ (Rage Indie Clip Of The Week) and their critically acclaimed album In Your Room (#3 on MTV Iggy’s Best Debut Albums of 2011, US) Cameras are hitting the road with dates taking in Melbourne, Brisbane, Byron Bay and Sydney.

Cameras are comprised of Eleanor Dunlop (vox/keys), Fraser Harvey (vox/guitar/bass), Ben Mason (drums) and have recently been joined by full time guitarist Mike Morgan. Mike has been an integral part of the Cameras team for the last 12 months, contributing guitar, additional percussion and keys to live performances as well as co-producing, engineering and mixing all tracks on In Your Room.

Forming in 2008, Cameras began writing and recording with a DIY ethic fueled by vast quantities of red wine. Early demos were received with fervour and led the band to begin work on their first full length album ‘In Your Room’. The tracks gained spins from Triple J, FBi, RRR, and 4ZZZ domestically, followed by key international exposure across tastemaker stations BBC6 Music (UK), KRCW (US) and even The Sex Pistol's own Steve Jones’ show on KROQ (US).

Last year Cameras were invited to tour Australia, opening for art rock legends Roxy Music on their national tour as well as making key appearances at The Big Day Out, Southbound, One Movement, Playground Weekender, Creative Sydney (VIVID) and Peats Ridge Festival.

Their tracks have been received both locally and internationally, with the demo version of ‘Defeatist’ being picked up and added to the soundtrack of US MTV show ‘The City’. The track was also synced to the worldwide trailer for Magnolia Pictures’ 2011 movie ‘I Melt With You’, starring Jeremy Piven and Rob Lowe. The use of “Defeatist” in the trailer also scored Cameras a nomination for ‘Best Score/Song In A Movie Trailer’ at the Hollywood Music and Media Awards in LA alongside Peter Gabriel, The White Stripes and Lady Gaga.

This international recognition further cemented Cameras on the global stage and led to the band being invited to showcase at CMJ Festival in New York City where they were selected as one of Virgin Music’s ‘Bands to Watch’ and also to perform at Filter Magazine’s Culture Collide Festival in LA.

In Your Room garners the sounds of The National and Arcade Fire alike, honing into a thrilling alt-rock edge that enters, transcends and brings you back down to earth.

Moody, mysterious and epic, yet buzzing with the quartet’s ever-present knack for an irresistible pop hook, be sure to catch Cameras performing tracks from ‘In Your Room’ as they tour the east coast in July 2012.
