From their inception in 1992 to 2002, The Waifs traversed Australia playing every small town with a local paper, a local radio station, a pub or hall that would host live music, and someone willing to listen, of which there were many! Constant touring laid a broad foundation, musical chemistry, and an approachable relatability through their lyrics solidified a lifelong, dedicated fan base.

Up All Night debuted at #3 on the ARIA charts and won four ARIA Awards for Best Blues and Roots Album, Best Independent Album, Engineer of The Year, and Producer of the Year for Chris Thompson. The album features some of the band’s most beloved tracks, including London Still, which was voted in at number three on the triple J Hottest 100.

The Waifs continue to forge a proudly independent path 30 years on and show no sign of slowing down.

Tickets go on sale 9 am Thursday, August 10 from here.
