Australia's most successful beard band, The Beards, is back after a month in the studio recording their third beard-related album. Now, they are about to embark on a nation-wide tour to hammer home their steadfast message. The band will be premiering their latest anthem, 'You Should Consider Having Sex With a Bearded Man'.
Since setting out to make the world a hairier place, The Beards have gained a loyal legion of bearded disciples around the country, but they are still not happy about society's general lack of beards. The 100 Beards Tour will see the band attempt to convince one hundred beardless people (or 'clean chins'), to grow and keep a beard.
“More and more people are realising they really would be better off with a bear,” says lead singer Johann Beardraven. “Soon the voice of the bearded will ring out in the streets.”
The mission's progress will be logged online at the The 100 Beards Tour Facebook page. Devotees can sign up with a picture of their brand new beard and join the beard revolution.
