Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird announce new UK tour dates

Exciting tour news: Cousin Tony’s Brand New Firebird, one of the hottest new exports to come out of Melbourne, Australia in recent years will hit the UK this coming May.

Their debut UK single ‘Love is Heartbreak’ is out now via Double Drummer /AWAL.  “Love is Heartbreak” is an ambitious, kaleidoscopic slice of alternative indie-pop that perfectly sets the scene for their forthcoming album’s thematic journey from heartbreak to recovery. The album will be released later this year.

CTBNF is led by the band’s enigmatic singer/songwriter Lachy Rose, who says of the single, “…Love is Heartbreak is the first thing I wrote after the collapse of a very long relationship. While the title is a fairly intense assessment of love – I wanted to articulate that heartbreak isn’t really this new feeling, it’s still your love and adoration for this person – just without someone receiving it on the other end. Suddenly it’s unrequited. That sensation is devastating, but it became an important mantra for me that it was really all just love. To me, that’s really the overarching theme of the entire new album”.   Lachy is supported in Cousin Tony by Francesca Gonzales, (vocals/keys) multi-instrumentalist Pete Simonsen, drummer Nick Reid and bassist Matt Hayes.

After securing fans across their native land with their epic live shows, the band is set to embark on their first UK and Ireland tour this May – Do not miss seeing them…
