Celebrating the release of their latest track, "Teddy" (Chugg Music/MGM) Teenage Dads are heading out on another headline tour through September and October with shows in many regional towns including Byron Bay, Gold Coast, Maroochydore, Ulladulla, Wollongong, Castlemaine, Ballarat and Scarborough in WA as well as shows in Brisbane, Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne.

Teenage Dads reputation as one of the most exciting new bands to see live keeps growing with every show. Having already performed to some of their biggest audiences ever as special guest on good mates Lime Cordiale’s tour earlier this year, the band’s own ‘Exit Sign’ tour saw packed rooms across Australia.

‘Teddy’ follows Teenage Dad’s April release ‘Exit Sign’ and 2021’s lauded ‘Club Echo’ EP. The band are preparing more songs for a wider release soon.

“if you know Teenage Dads then you know and if you don’t then you will soon enough” Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J

“a band that’s heating up the mosh like spitting oil in a frying pan. Their performance was infectious, and I would dare say addictive.” - The AU Review


There‘s major movements in the undercurrents for Boorloo‘s next psych-rock project, Sprinter. This fresh Perth 4-piece decided to burn the rulebook and begin their journey into playing the fuzziest high-energy psychedelic this side of the desert.

Sprinter is Jon Stapleton, Madi Hanley and Gus McKenzie. Prior to coming together as Sprinter, they each made their mark on the Perth music scene, featuring in acts including Dulcie, Wooly Mammoth and STAPLETON.

They burst onto the Perth scene in June with their debut single “Wasteland' a raucous, riff-filled fuzz jam reminiscent of acts like Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, King Gizzard and Post Animal,

Their next single, ADHD Baby, recorded by Perth‘s own Andy Lawson (Eskimo Joe, Noah Dillon, Death By Denim) is another confident step down this path,

Catch them as they launch the track at The Bird on October 22, their first show in what‘s shaping up to be a huge summer for Sprinter.
