Sunnyboys to celebrate 40 years anniversary with new music release plus tour

Australia's power pop band Sunnyboys are hitting the roads next year February in celebration of 40 years since their inception (though a mere 12 years of actual existence). The tour kicks off at Torquay Hotel, then will make its way to Melbourne's The Forum, Brisbane's The Tivoli Theatre and Sydney's Taronga Zoo. The group will also be playing at the Sunshine Coast's The Shed and the Gold Coast's Miami Marketta.

"We really didn't think we would ever play again as a band. But wow, we have and we sure are having a bloody great time doing it." - Peter Oxley

Special guests Painters & Dockers will join Sunnyboys for the shows in Victoria and Queensland. Garage rockers Rocket Science, on the other hand, will support the birthday boys in Sydney.

Ahead of the tour, the band will also be releasing 'Sunnyboys 40'—the first ever re-release of their much-loved 1980 eponymous debut—featuring the original version of the all-time classic 'Alone With You'—alongside four new recordings culled from the archives of chief songwriter Jeremy Oxley. The full length 8-track album will be available on November 29th via all formats including a limited edition vinyl release complete with hard cover 12-page 30cm x 30cm photo essay of the band as well as CD, cassette and all digital platforms.

"You can't keep a good band down. These new and revitalised songs take it back to the reason behind the band in the first instance. The 40 years in between is nicely depicted in the change in voice while the energy and craftsmanship is still there in the sound, albeit a little fuller and rounder. I guess, it's just like us too really…" - Jeremy Oxle
