Super Best Friends, Pat Chow and more set to join The Peep Tempel's Australian tour next month!

The Peep Tempel are gearing up for one hell of a tour next month and just with their name alone on the bill, crowds know they're in for a kickass time. Things got a whole lot more exciting recently however, with the Melbourne band confirming just some of the special guests set to fill out the gig bill in each state. Showcasing some of the country's best up and coming rock acts, The Peep Tempel have made this 'Gettin' On By' tour one that is as much about celebrating some great music being made by local outfits, as it is about getting their latest out to more and more fans. Which on its own, is never a bad thing, of course. This news just makes for a great bonus.

The record will be released on vinyl and digital formats on June 6th through Sonic Masala - be sure to get your hands on a copy!

New Music Video: Tape/Off "Pedestal Fan" (2014)

Brisbane group Tape/Off - favourites of us here on the AU - have just released their new music video "Pedestal Fan", which sees the four piece performing the track in the back of their van as it drives erratically around the streets of Brisbane. It's probably not legal, but boy does it make a fun clip. And list out for a jazz trumpet freak-out from Pale Earth's Ben Thompson. Killer.
