Busby Marou and M Jack Bee to support Pete Murray on national tour.

As Pete Murray prepares for the release of his brand new album “Blue Sky Blue” and his first Australian tour in over two years, we are happy to announce the addition of Busby Marou and M Jack Bee as support on The Free Tour nationally throughout October & November, 2011.

"The Free Tour" will feature Pete’s hits, some new songs, a new band and sees him returning to the venues where many of his loyal fans experienced his early dynamic live shows. Tickets for all shows will go on sale at 9am on Friday, September 2nd – the same day Pete’s new album lands in stores across the country.

Hailing from Rockhampton, Busby Marou have been having a huge 2011 so far, with the release of their self titled debut on Warner Music’s indie imprint Footstomp Music in June, the album has already sold just shy of 10, 000 copies. They’ve had national radio airplay with the single ‘Biding My Time’, a sold out national album launch tour and now being added to the bill of Pete’s national tour - things couldn’t get much better for the QLD duo.

Byron Bay local, M Jack Bee is an exciting up and coming talent, whose live show melds bittersweet love songs, which climax to melodic walls of noise using only his voice, guitar and loop pedals. His 2010 release ‘Loops’ received rave reviews and sold out after the first print, garnering praise for its intimacy and boldness. M. Jack Bee’s next single 'Sound Of Love/She Said' will be released independently in October just in time for The Free Tour.

"The Free Tour" takes its name from the new single that landed this week - "Free", a song about breaking loose from the shackles and a perfect title for a tour that comes after such a long break from Australian gigging.

"I'm really looking forward to finally getting back out on the road and playing these shows", explains Pete. "The new album took longer to write and record than anything I've done since "Feeler" so I'm really looking forward to playing some of these songs to people. Plus it's time to continue my quest to try to find the perfect truck stop burger!"

"Blue Sky Blue" is Pete Murray's fourth studio album; his three previous releases having sold over a million copies in Australia and the listeners of Triple J recently voted his classic “Feeler” in the top 100 Aussie albums of all time.
