The legendary Sunnyboys hit the road in February 2020 to celebrate the release of ‘Sunnyboys40’, a brand new 8-track album that comprises the first ever re-release of the band’s iconic 1980 debut 7” including the original version of ‘Alone With You’, plus four new recordings culled from the archives of chief songwriter Jeremy Oxley.
The release of ‘Sunnyboys40’ will coincide with a tour to celebrate this collection of classic tunes, some of which have only been heard on their live albums. Fans will be stoked to see the band playing the Gold Coast again, with the Sunnyboys holding records for attendance at many GC venues.
Lead singer and songwriter Jeremy Oxley is excited for the tour and release of the album.
“You can’t keep a good band down. These new and revitalised songs take it back to the reason behind the band in the first instance. The 40 years in between is nicely depicted in the change in voice while the energy and craftsmanship is still there in the sound, albeit a little fuller and rounder. I guess, it’s just like us too really…”
The Sunnyboys will hit the east coast this February with a Gold Coast show at Miami Marketta. Special guests Painters & Dockers will join Sunnyboys for the Queensland shows. It will be a flashback to those huge nights at the Playroom, and almost like a reunion of sorts for the fans.
Pre-sale tickets for all shows on sale Tuesday 29 October. I wouldn’t muck around getting my ticket, they will sell out fast.
