Final show for a while aways...

I Heart Hiroshima final shows for some while aways...

2010 kicks off with a greatly appreciated sojourn for I Heart Hiroshima for rest, travel and song writing. After releasing their second album The Rip amid numerous tours including in late November some dates in Vietnam and Cambodia (see the Mess+Noise tour diary here), they capped off the year with much praised single Shakeytown scoring #1 spot in the 4ZZZ Top 100 (4zzzfm.org.au/events/..hot100) and their version of The Chills Pink Frost coming in at  #4. As Susie departs for some overseas travel, and some eventual tour dates around the 2010 European release of The Rip they play two final shows here in home waters... the Gold Coast Big Day Out and favoured venue the Brisbane Powerhouse.

Words from our sponsor...

2009 has been a big year...actually the last four years have been incredibly busy for us.

We've played over 260 shows in 13 countries.....

Recorded and released 2 albums and 3 EP's.....

Played some amazing festivals and seen some phenomenal show and been lucky enough to play shows/tour with Ratatat, Peaches, Cat Power, The Rakes, Maximo Park, Conor Oberst and The Mystic Valley Band, Stereo Total, The Streets, Tricky, Rogers Sisters, Deerhoof, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah,The Grates and more that I can't remember...

All while maintaining a good inter-band friendship, drinking too much coffee (our hearts now pump caffeine not blood), living in Brisbane and working at our regular jobs.

E.P.I.C. Well, not really on the grand scheme of things, but the point is that we've accomplished a lot and we are really proud of the things we have achieved and we want to show you who are right now, from start to finish. So we are going to play all of our released material in order, kind of like a retrospective i guess!

Also, this will be the last show we will play for ?months? as Susie is headed overseas to travel the US then relocate to Berlin. The boys will join her in Germany at some stage to tour around Europe again.

So yes, if you like our band in any way shape or form this is it.......for the time being. A celebration and a goodbye all in one.

Playing the show also is Dick Diver from Melbourne - the super talented drummer/artist/celeb Steph Hughes also did the poster - and Brisbane's own Bigstrongbrute.

Hope to see you all there for a Sunday afternoon by the river. Ahh summer bliss

More UK and Euopean fare to come soon as.
