Busby Marou release their highly anticipated fifth studio album Blood Red, teaming up with Tom Eggert, Nat Dunn, Chris Collins, Ned Houston, Robby De Sa and George Sheppard amongst others.
Tom Busby and Jeremy join us here on Big Brekky around 8.30am this morning.
Blood Red is their fifth studio album and their most ambitious yet. An album of hope, optimist and friendship – while sonically keeping a positive theme from start to finish.
"We poured our hearts and souls into Blood Red, our most ambitious album yet.
In a world that can often feel dark and uncertain, these songs are a reminder to keep moving forward with hope and optimism, even when it's hard. We can't wait for everyone to hear it and feel the same sense of inspiration and strength that we do."
Released with an incredibly special music video directed by Richard Hambling, ‘Crying’ is a powerful tribute to the resilience of our communities in the face of adversity. It explores the mental health effects that our farmers face in silence after enduring droughts, floods, and fires.
“It’s an important message that hits close to home for many of us. The lyrics are raw and emotional, capturing the pain and struggle that farmers experience as they try to cope with the aftermath of these disasters. But despite the heavy subject matter, we hope this song also offers hope and support, reminding us that it’s ok to cry and reach out for help when we need it.”
They have toured with likes of Midnight Oil, Cold Chisel, Elton John, Dolly Parton, James Blunt and Guy Sebastian.
They have just wrapped their Tiny Towns Tour – where they take their live show to regional Queensland Towns – nearly completely sold out and playing in front of 3-4k per night!
Busby Marou will embark on their Australian headline Blood Red tour from August. Ticket info and details at www.busbymarou.com
