The Stillsons announce national album tour for Earnest
Contemporary roots band The Stillsons have announced a national tour to launch their second album 'Earnest'.
'Earnest' has already been well received by respected music publications and radio stations. Nick Argyriou of RHYTHMS magazine made the comment, "Earnest manages to meld a dusty sonic chemistry with bold and imperishably robust rhythms during one of the most amiable releases you'll hear in 2011. And this is not hyperbole -- trust me."
Singer-song writing duo, Justin Bernasconi (guitar) and Cat Canteri (drums), remain at the core of the band's unique sound. Their rare male-female dynamic echoes the likes of Fleetwood Mac, Welch & Rawlins. Ben Franz (The Waifs) also joined the group in January 2010, adding his deft touch on pedal steel guitar, backing vocals and production.
The title song Earnest was inspired by tragic statistics, which state that more Australians die from suicide than car accidents or skin cancer, and males in regional areas account for a high percentage of these self-inflicted deaths.
The Stillsons' second album Earnest will be available through FUSE Group on Friday 9th September and is available in all Title record stores or online at iTunes.
