The Stems announce three Australian shows before Europe
The Stems, Perth's most popular and iconic 80s garage rock band, celebrated the 30th anniversary of the release of their classic debut album "At First Sight Violets are Blue" with a successful all Australian capital cities tour in November 2017. To coincide with the tour, "At First Sight Violets are Blue" was reissued as a limited edition tour CD.
The tour garnered enough interest in Europe for Spain’s Fuzzville Festival to make an offer for them to appear at the festival. More shows naturally followed and the band are now set to embark for a three week European tour over April/May which will cover Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Sweden and the UK.
The UK leg includes a show at London's historic 100 Club.
Original members Dom Mariani, Julian Matthews and Dave Shaw will be joined by You Am Is Davey Lane on guitar.
As a warm up for the tour the band will be doing three exclusive Australian shows this April, one each in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. Vinyl fans will be happy to know that "At First Sight Violets are Blue" will be reissued as a 12" LP by Citadel Records and will be available at the shows.
