News: Big Scary are 'Leaving Home' again, announce Vacation tour

AMR's favourite babes, Big Scary, have already announced their first international visit, hitting up the prestigious SXSW festival later this year; but today sees the announcement of their biggest national headline tour to date. The Vacation tour sees the Melbourne duo playing dates across the country throughout April, with support from the excellently eighties stylings of Geoffrey O'Connor and some, as yet unconfirmed, special guests.

Big Scary are nothing if not a thrilling live act (in fact, last year's best according to this blog) and having released their excellent debut album on their own independent label, Pieater, they're taking it back on the road - the very place that inspired it's reflective set of intropsective, genre-defying gems.

Tom Iansek, he of the road-tested beard and dynamic vocal range, notes "we've been practising hard and we're looking forward to taking the Vacation songs, and a smattering of newer material on the road." With the recently announced single, Leaving Home, the band are shifting their focus "more on the slower material," according to drummer Jo Syme, she of the cute-bob-cut-hair and fierce rhythmic abilities, "we're excited to be releasing it as a single. We've often just relied on the party songs to get us through a set in the past."

If you're reading this blog and you haven't checked out Big Scary yet (is that even possible?) then make sure you grab their free five-song sampler below. It's their gift to you before they embark for the road.
