BOB EVANS BACK WITH ‘DON’T WANNA GROW UP ANYMORE’ NEW SINGLE OUT NOW; ‘THE DOUBLE LIFE’ EP RELEASED NOVEMBER 9 AND TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT

| 20 October 2012 | Reply

Bob Evans – the charming alter-ego and solo project of Australian recording artist Kevin Mitchell, who also fronts alternative rock band Jebediah, today releases his first new material in close to four years.  Titled ‘Don’t Wanna Grow Up Anymore’, the rather delicious and upbeat slice of Spring pop is now at Australian radio and available digitally from today.

With a sound that breaks away from the overarching acoustic and somewhat alt-country style of previous records, ‘Don’t Wanna Grow Up Anymore’ will be featured on the forthcoming new four track EP titled, ‘The Double Life’, to be released Friday November 9.

‘The Double Life’ EP sees Bob bring in the acclaimed Dean Reid (Marina And The Diamonds and Mystery Jets) for production duties with all tracks recorded at Sing Sing Studios in Melbourne. The new music showcases a progressive pop sound and an artist brimming with newfound inspiration.

‘The Double Life’ EP tracklisting:
‘Don’t Wanna Grow Up Anymore’
‘Sitting In The Waiting Room’
‘Antibiotics’
‘Wrecking Ball’

In support of the new single and EP releases, Bob Evans announces a very unique and intimate ‘Double Life’ run of tour dates.  Kicking off in Brisbane on Friday November 9, the tour will see Bob Evans play in solo acoustic mode, showcasing brand new material as well as some well loved classic Bob tunes.  The tour then heads to Adelaide, Perth, Sydney and winds up in Melbourne Friday November 23.  Full list of shows are below with tickets on sale now from www.bobevans.com.au

Each ticket purchased will automatically include a copy of ‘The Double Life’ EP which fans will receive on the night of their chosen show at the door.  Joining Bob Evans as the main support on this tour is the folk influenced rising star, Queensland’s Thelma Plum.

In their true Double Life style, Kevin Mitchell has interviewed his alter-ego Bob Evans about recording again.

KEV – “It’s been an unusual few years since we made “Goodnight, Bull Creek!” hasn’t it? During that time I was in Perth making records with Jebediah and Basement Birds simultaneously and both those records came out one after the other and I toured them both and before we knew it three years had gone by!”

BOB – “It was a good chance for me to catch my breath. You needed to see other people and I needed to be alone for a while. It sounds dysfunctional but it was actually the best medicine for us both. It gave me a chance to map a new course for us creatively.”

The forthcoming full-length Bob Evans album is set for release in early-2013, marking the fourth studio release and a new chapter in the Bob Evans story. It follows on from the beloved ‘suburban’ trilogy; ‘Suburban Kid’, ‘Suburban Songbook’ and most recently, ‘Goodnight, Bull Creek!’ which earned the artist dual 2009 ARIA Award nominations for Best Male Artist and Best Adult Contemporary Album.

A talented singer/songwriter, Bob Evans achieved the award for Best Male Artist in Rolling Stone Australia’s 2007 annual reader poll, was a finalist for 2007’s Australian Music Prize, and a strong contender for the lauded J Award in 2006.  Bob Evans’ second studio release, ‘Suburban Songbook’, picked up the 2006 ARIA Award for Best Adult Contemporary Album, chalking up Gold accreditation in the process.
