2013 saw the release of Clubfeet's sophomore album Heirs and Graces, with singles "Heartbreaker (ft. Chela)" and "Everything You Wanted", with new single "Cape Town."
The Cape Town tour is their biggest tour since since February's sold out tour.
Ballarat band Gold Fields are hyped to be the band to look out for in 2013. With critical acclaim overseas as well as the hype around first single ‘Dark Again’ from their upcoming debut album, Gold Fields played a free show for Sydney fans before they depart to the US of A.
