Much-loved Australian duo Busby Marou will be touring Australia in October and November in support of their upcoming fourth studio album 'The Great Divide', due out on the 27th of September (Warner Music).

This upcoming tour follows the momentum of a huge past year of summer performances and new songwriting material from Tom Busby (hailing from Queensland, Australia) and Jeremy Marou (from the beautiful Torres Strait Islands). The duo rounded off 2018 with their biggest ever headline show, playing to over 3,000 people at their own One Hot Night festival in Rockhampton, QLD. 2019 began with the recording of their fourth studio album The Great Divide with producer Oscar Dawson (Holy Holy), with whom they had an immediate and compelling connection. The album which was born as a result is a powerful chapter in the story of two men from two very different worlds, on the same journey and having reached a new level of maturity.

The duo said of the new album, "'The Great Divide' is not about division or adversaries. It's about recognising that we all have a different account of events in our own lives and celebrating how those differences combine to create a unique and colourful story. Without our great divide, there is no Busby Marou story."

Just this month, Busby Marou shared the first taste of their forthcoming album with the hit track 'Over Drinking Over You'. "'Over Drinking Over You' is a song about when fun habits stop being fun. The symptom is a broken heart and the medicine is the whiskey to endure it."

A mark of difference between Busby Marou and many other live bands is their ability to captivate a crowd in a country theatre or pub in regional Australia equally as much as in a slick inner-city venue. The duo make a point of sticking close to their roots by touring regional areas, and regardless of venue, their live performances fill the room with distinct Australian storytelling and heavenly vocal interplay.

Tom and Jeremy have come a long way since they met years ago, busting out tunes in the corner of Rockhampton's Oxford Hotel to anyone who might listen. A gift for storytelling, exquisite harmonies and a potent chemistry between the two mates make for a sound which is truly unique to Busby Marou. Their success over the past decade includes millions of global streams, top 20 airplay, three ARIA charting albums and twice winning the APRA Blues & Roots Work of the Year. Their debut self-titled album was certified ARIA Gold in Australia in 2014, while their follow up album Farewell Fitzroy debuted at #5 on the album chart. Their most recent album Postcards From The Shell House, released in 2017, is their first ARIA #1 album. Last year, they released their Aussie anthem, ‘Sound of Summer’ which currently has over 2.5 million global streams.

The duo will be accompanied nationally by Byron Bay musician Bobby Alu, in Cairns by Leanne Tennant and in Fremantle by Camarano. Multi-instrumentalist Bobby Alu has chilled out, ukulele-driven tunes that nod to a strong family lineage of Polynesian performance and bring a sense of Island-time serenity and gentle optimism to his live shows. Leanne Tennant will be joining Busby Marou in Cairns, with her alternative roots bringing an escape from the everyday, taking inspiration from nature and her own life experiences. Singer-songwriter-producer Camarano has mesmerised fans with his genre-bending sounds.
