We reflect on their recently completed Australian tour for their latest record Acid Rain and Sugar Cane (Out Now), what it's like being on the road for Henry as a new Dad... and much more!

Album Review: Wagons - Acid Rain and Sugar Cane (2014 LP)

I would make some quip about jumping on the bandwagon (pun intended) but that one has already been taken by every music review e-zine and magazine from Townsville to Bunbury. Wagons released their LP Acid Rain and Sugar Cane in May. If you like the sound of this you must absolutely keep your eyes peeled for their national tour around Australia over the rest of this month.

New Music Video: Wagons "Why Do You Always Cry" (2014)

Wagons are back at last with their new record Acid Rain and Sugar Cane. Single "Why Do You Always Cry" is perhaps their most powerful song yet, spiralling down an emotional drain that is equal parts Lee Hazlewood and Nick Cave. The video - which has frontman Henry Wagons filming the band himself - captures the seasick feeling of the song perfectly.

Wagons to tour new record "Acid Rain and Sugar Cane" with Jonny Fritz

Count the days until May 16th, for that is when the Wagons release their wildly anticipated new album entitled Acid Rain and Sugar Cane. The new CD will be embellished with electric licks and over the top brass and even some high pitched choirs. Expect a loud and proud new sound from the Wagons as they showboat their new CD around the country.

Live Review: Blood, Sweat & Beers - Annandale Hotel (04.02.12)

bs&b 6

This is the way summer should be. Sun out, cold Coopers in hand, waiting for some tunes in the sixth installment of The Annandale’s local punk festival, Blood, Sweat & Beers. With a big month lined up for the iconic live music venue, Blood, Sweat & Beers kicked things off out back with Tommy Optional from the band The Optionals playing a solo acoustic set. Playing in much the same vein as Frank Turner, his folk tunes were perfect for a sunny afternoon.
