Messrs embarking on the 'Running Wild' tour from April 11.

Adelaide's Messrs rounded out 2012 in quite the massive way, their debut EP Welcome to Nowhere storming the iTunes Album Chart and a sold out national tour following soon after in November. Now, the band are ready to get back out on the road through April, May and June in support of their new single "Running Wild". The eight-date tour around Australia is set to be supported by some awesome local talent, making this a tour you won't want to miss.

Tully On Tully launching new single down the east coast through until June.

Tully On Tully's collaboration with the talented Hayden Calnin, "Stay", is a song written by lovers for the lovers. With a single launch tour continuing through until June, Tully On Tully will be sharing the stage with some of the country's best up and coming talent. From their beginnings in 2011, Tully On Tully have been solidly impressing crowds all over the place as well as the industry folk who've been lauding their sound.

Check them out at the following venues!

Live Review: Last Dinosaurs + Messrs, Adelaide Unibar (06.03.13)

O’Week at any university is the same, I imagine; if you’re a first year, you’ve got a few days to wander your new campus, load up on all the freebies because, God knows you’ve blown all your money on textbooks you won’t end up using and in most cases, venture to your uni’s bar for the first time. If you’re a well-learned uni student, O’Week generally spells out drunkenness, as you take full advantage of the O’Week BBQs and outdoor bars, free showbags and have a laugh from your usual seats in said Uni bar as you watch the starry-eyed freshers be put through their paces. All in all, it’s a good time. Adelaide Uni in particular, has been known for its raucous O’Week frivolities and their end of week concerts, which have in past years, played host to some of the country’s best touring bands.

New Music Video: Messrs - "Desert" (2013)

Adelaide band Messrs have a new clip out for their track, "Desert". Directed and produced as part of the Clip It! initiative, "Desert" was made by local Nima Nabili Rad.

Last Dinosaurs touring Australian universities with 'The First Degree' tour!

It's pretty cool to have live music on your university campus; it makes O'Weeks and nights spent drinking on even more worthwhile. Good news, students (and non-students), Last Dinosaurs will be coming to your campus or one pretty close by, on 'The First Degree' tour!

the AU [audio] interview at the Big Day Out: Craig Lock & Josh Moore of Messrs (Adelaide)

Local boys Messrs are one of the great bunch of local artists scheduled to take to the Adelaide Big Day Out Red Stage over the course of today. Before they performed in the afternoon and once Josh Moore made his way through the throng of girls clamouring for a photo, I managed to get the band's frontman and bassist Craig Lock*, in the media lounge for a chat.

Live Review: Messrs - Grace Darling Hotel (08.12.12)

Strategic ankle boots for extra height. Check. Tall friend to take photos if strategic ankle boots fail. Check. Best friend’s birthday card for Josh Moore to sign. Check. Fair to say I was in game mode on Saturday night as my friend and I made our way to the Grace Darling Hotel to catch Adelaide outfit Messrs, for the launch of their new EP Welcome to Nowhere.
