After enjoying some time making music with his housemates as part of Good Oak, Tom Busby is back to the duo that made him famous. Busby Marou will tour the country next month to celebrate the release of their second album Farewell Fitzroy, due out on October 4.
Personally I’m thankful for the release just because it gives my parents something new to play. I’m pretty sure Busby Marou’s stellar debut has found its way onto their stereo on every family get together in the last two years. Not just one spin either. I love that album as much as the rest of my clan, but it’s going to be awesome to hear something fresh!
We should expect a bigger sound this time around, as Busby Marou were joined in a Nashville studio by their touring buddies Damon DJ Syme, Vincenso Russo, and Vaughan Jones.
Busby Marou are so proud of their new songs that they’re wasting no time taking them to the people. They’ll kick off a national tour in Byron Bay on the same day as Farewell Fitzroy’s release.
