Melbourne heavy blues stalwarts CHILD are heading back to Europe in October to play Rockpalast Crossroads with US chart toppers Blackberry Smoke and a string of festivals and club shows with legendary US band Acid King.
In the lead up to their 2018 European Tour, CHILD will play 4 Saturday afternoon matinees at Cherry Bar in September and a post-grand final evening farewell extravaganza. Afternoon shows are free entry and all ages are welcome with a guardian.
The Sinking Teeth started in a flat above a grubby pawn shop in the norther suburbs of Melbourne, built to soothe a common creative need between Julian Doan (Bass) and Nick Manuell (Guitar). It became something to focus on and something to take seriously. The blend of an abnormally wide range of influences shaped the sound of the band into a strange post punk mix of colour and crust.
The release of their debut EP White Water in late 2013 put them on the road throughout Australia and New Zealand with a slew of noteworthy acts including Jimmy Eat World, Violent Soho, Bodyjar and Luca Brasi. They felt the enormity of the stage at The Forum Melbourne, the intimacy of Ric's Bar in Brisbane, and the harrowing reality of sometimes playing to no one in the middle of nowhere surrounded by spinifex and cattle.
