King Stingray

KING STINGRAY weren’t joking when they told the whole nation to “get me out of the city” on their debut album. Everyone’s favourite Yolngu surf rock band have just announced a regional run of gigs this July/August, taking in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland, the ACT and the NT. After dominating Australian airwaves ever since they busted out of Arnhem Land with hits like Milkumana, KING STINGRAY have been busy writing album number two. This tour is the perfect chance for them to road test some new material, including their most recent single Through The Trees. “Let’s not waste anymore time” indeed!

The tour starts in regional Victoria, with gigs in Castlemaine, Frankston and then hopefully someone can lend the boys a few wetties and boards before the show in Torquay. NSW fans get Byron, Coffs, Newy and Wollongong gigs and there’s even a visit to the nation’s capital, which asks the big question – will self-professed super fan Albo come and catch the set?? Albo, your name’s on the door, don’t be shy!

Queenslanders get a couple of shows in the Gold Coast and Maroochydore, and tour ends up right back where it all started, with KING STINGRAY playing a FREE hometown show headlining Arnhem Land’s most awesome music festival, East Arnhem Live.

Tickets for the tour go on sale at from 10am AEST Wed 22 May, 2024. Grab em quick as the these smaller regional venues are the perfect place to see, hear and feel the power of KING STINGRAY’S one/two double punch – timeless Yolngu manikay mixed with pumping indie surf rock.
