Much loved Australian duo Busby Marou will perform at Venue 114 on Saturday 26 October.
The concert is in support of their upcoming fourth studio album The Great Divide, due for release on the 27th of September.
The APRA award-winning duo have had a huge past year of summer performances and new material from Queensland born Tom Busby, and Jeremy Marou from the beautiful Torres Strait Islands.
The duo rounded off 2018 with their biggest ever headline show, playing to more than 3000 people at their own One Hot Night festival in Rockhampton.
The duo started 2019 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 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 the new album, The Great Divide was 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,” they said.
Just this month, Busby Marou shared the first taste of their forthcoming album with the hit track Over Drinking Over You.
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.
Joining Busby Marou on tour is Gold Coast born-and-bred singer and multi-instrumentalist Bobby Alu.
