“Think of it – six mighty men of rock who like to roll tobacco/snares/home, each taking a back seat when they need to, practically doing a Victorian-era “After you, my good man,” when only a slide guitar is needed, or a shimmering organ or a lightly-shaken tambourine.” Herald Sun
Tex Perkins has shown us many faces over the journey.
Front man for the evocative soundscapes of The Cruel Sea and the hard edged pub rock of The Beasts of Bourbon, collaborator on the Tex, Don and Charlie outings, and compadre to Tim Rogers on the TnT project and more recently fronting the rock band The Ape, Tex is now back once again to the mysterious moody groove of The Dark Horses, returning this October / November with a select run of tour dates in support.
Beginning life as primarily Perkos backing band The Dark Horses have developed a sound and style distinctly their own.
The live set promises, as always, to be something special. Perkins’ world-weary growl will showcase songs from the new album, alongside gems from their Black Cattle Dog.
Join Tex Perkins and fellow Dark Horses – Charlie Owen, Joel Silbersher, Murray Paterson, Stephen Hadley and Gus Agars as they come together, playing some of the finest tunes your ears will hear in 2014.
