MICK THOMAS’ ROVING COMMISSION ANNOUNCES NEW EP & CHRISTMAS 2018 DATES

MICK THOMAS’ ROVING COMMISSION – NEW VIDEO, EP & CHRISTMAS 2018 DATES

Treasured Australian alt-folk outlier Mick Thomas and his band The Roving Commission have just announced the new EP Boxing Day Drive, and his traditional string of pre-Christmas dates across the country. From the forthcoming EP, the single of the same name is out now.

Compiled from particularly fruitful and inspired album recording dates in Memphis, Tennessee, Boxing Day Drive offers long-time fans a tantalising glimpse into the sessions that will become the band’s forthcoming full-length album release Cold Water DFU – due for release in 2019 and destined to leave yet another high water mark on Thomas’ already storied career.

 

The journey back to Memphis was both a spiritual and musical pilgrimage for Thomas and his long-time collaborator Mark “Squeezebox Wally” Wallace, returning to the scene of the creation of Wedding Parties Anything 1989 masterpiece The Big Don’t Argue, though this time with Kevin Houston and Cody Dickson, rather than Cody’s late father and recording legend Jim Dickson at the helm (Kevin was Jim’s long time studio engineer).

As has been his tradition for many years, Mick has also announced a string of Christmas dates across the country, bringing his own brand of festive cheer, new material, and a grab bag of long-time favourites to the faithful.

Boxing Day Drive EP, released 16 November 2018, tracklist:
1. Boxing Day Drive
2. Hug My Back
3. House Of Ghosts
4. Aqua Profunda
5. A Tale They Won’t Believe
