Continuing on their epic European tour with 65daysofstatic, Sydney's sleepmakeswaves bring us Part Four of their tour diary series. Alex tells us what it's been like going through Budapest, Croatia, Germany and the like, and how being on the road has begun to affect them.
We’ve just returned home to Melbourne after finishing of our Euro tour with Canadians Half Moon Run. The trip covered Germany, the Netherlands, and Switzerland with all shows, bar one, selling out! After 33 hours in transit we’re pretty exhausted but will expend our remaining energy on one final diary entry.
Our good friends in Melbourne's goodbyemotel are continuing their tour around America. Enjoy part three of their adventures around the country in this very special tour diary feature video!
Hello, my name is Kid and I'm one of the guitarists in sleepmakeswaves. If you read the previous tour diary entries you would know they were done by our bass player, Alex. Apologies in advance if my narrative skills aren't quite on par with Alex's, I spent most of my tertiary years playing guitar, computer games and thinking about girls instead of studying important stuff like English and the skills necessary to write tour diaries. But here it goes...
Since leaving Berlin we've spent the last three nights playing consecutive shows in Hamburg, Amsterdam and Koln supporting Half Moon Run.
I had the opportunity to catch up with The Delta Riggs a few times on their journey around the USA. They started in LA (see part one of the gallery for more from LA), before heading to CMJ and New York City, which part two of this special gallery covers - alongside some more of their adventures in Los Angeles! Friend and photographer of the Riggs, James Adams, documented their journey, and brings us this VERY special gallery of a band on the road in a new country.
We (Lowlakes) arrived in Berlin two days ago; we're here for a handful of shows with Canadian band Half Moon Run. The first is in Hamburg tomorrow, so we've had a bit of time to kick around the city.
I had the opportunity to catch up with The Delta Riggs a few times on their journey around the USA. They started in LA, with a special show at the Bootleg Bar - accompanied by a slew of fantastic talent from Australia, including Tigertown, Oh Mercy and Bored Nothings. It felt like every Australian in town had made it to the show - even Angus Stone, who's reportedly recording new music in the area. Friend and photographer of the Riggs, James Adams, documented their journey, and brings us this VERY special gallery of a band on the road in a new country. Part one takes us their adventures in Los Angeles.
Bringing us up to date on their latest shenanigans on the road through Europe with 65daysofstatic is Alex from Sydney's sleepmakeswaves. From Belgium through to Germany, catch up on the tour in Part Two of their epic tour diary series below!

The fabulous Okenyo recently supported Jinja Safari on their recent national tour and documented the run of dates for us! Check out the tour diary below.
Hello. We are sleepmakeswaves. We make instrumental rock music. Some people call it ‘post-rock’, we prefer to call it ‘love songs about delay pedals’. We are embarking on a tour of Europe with a band called 65daysofstatic. They sound kinda like us, but are slightly older, probably a little better and British. It will be the biggest, and hopefully the best, tour we have ever done to date.
Our good friends in Melbourne's goodbyemotel are touring around America and trying to break the market. Enjoy the first part of their adventures around the country in this very special tour diary feature video!
Good friends of the AU review, Melbourne's Metals, recently packed their bags and headed to the UK to perform at the legendary Glastonbury festival. They compiled a tour diarty exclusively for the AU review, which you can enjoy here...
