Teal announce east coast tour supporting The Butterfly Effect

Sydney rock band Teal has a huge end of 2013 planned after announcing today they will open for The Butterfly Effect on their east coast tour dates in October.

The band have just completed a successful headline tour (including a sold-out show at Sydney’s Spectrum) and the news follows the release of the band’s debut EP ‘Hearth’ which has so far seen airplay for lead single ‘Solitaires’ on triple j, FBi, 4zzz and community radio nationally. ‘Hearth’ was produced by Lucius Borich, best known for being the drummer of Cog, Floating Me and currently The Nerve. The 5 track EP is Lucius’s first official foray into producing after opening Keysound Studios in 2012.

The upcoming dates are an opportunity for the young alternative/progressive rockers to cap off an amazing 18 months. After signing with manager Hamish Smith at Blue Shift Entertainment, they have been occupied touring the east coast and playing shows with sleepmakeswaves, Dead Letter Circus, Closure in Moscow, The Red Paintings & Twelve Foot Ninja.

Mid-2013 saw the band signing with Sydney-based Bird’s Robe Records, joining an impressive roster of Australian and international art rock and progressive acts, including 65daysofstatic, sleepmakeswaves, The Red Paintings and The Crooked Fiddle Band.
