They wowed crowds with their acoustic shows in May, and now Eskimo Joe are preparing to plug in for a run of gigs in September and October. The lads will be out to celebrate the release of their fifth studio album Ghosts of the Past, which hits stores on August 12.
“We’re really looking forward to taking the intimate moments from our shows in May and presenting them on a larger stage,” said the band’s frontman Kav Temperley.
If you’re intending on taking in one of the shows it’s probably worth heading to the Eskimo Joe website. For a limited time fans can order their tour ticket, a ticket and album pre-order pack, or a VIP ticket which includes a show ticket with priority venue entry, a copy of the album, and attendance at an acoustic performance and meet and greet.
Eskimo Joe will warm up at Splendour in the Grass before heading to Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, and Western Australia. Never fear Tasmanians and South Australians; they’ll announce dates near you in the coming weeks.
