20 years on from the release of one of their greatest records.
Renowned homebrew Magic Dirt have announced a special anniversary edition on their third album, What Are Rock Stars Doing Today.
Released in October of 2000, the album spawned singles such as “Pace It” and triple j favourite “Dirty Jeans’, following on from critically-acclaimed classics such as Friends in Danger and Young & Full of the Devil. The album only charted at #34 in Australia, but it did score an ARIA nomination for Best Adult Alternative Album which is pretty damn good for this 90’s/early 2000’s staple group.
Following vinyl pressings of their early EPs in recent years, the group are continuing their series of reissues, announcing a special vinyl re-release of the album in celebration of its massive anniversary.
Revealed via Instagram, the group will release a special white vinyl version of the album on November 13th, with pre-orders for the record, shirts, and a special combination bundle available now. Magic Dirt have also announced that $5 from every t-shirt sale is set to go to Support Act, “a much needed Australian music industry charity that supports artists, roadies and music workers in crisis”. The release of the record and the shirts coincide with the upcoming Ausmusic T-Shirt Day event, which takes place on November 20th.
