From enormous festivals to stageless squats and dive bars all around the world, The Smith Street Band have seen it all and they’ve poured those experiences into their boldest and most ambitious release to date. Today the band announce that they’ll take their fourth album, More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me on the road around Australia from May, and they’re bringing explosive Californian pop-punks Joyce Manor, Melbourne mates Ceres and indie-pop sensation (and USA SideOneDummy label mate) Allison Weiss with them.

For this tour we’re playing the venues that we have always dreamed of playing, we chose big beautiful theatres because we want these to be big beautiful shows! We've also expanded our show in order to fully bring these songs to life, this tour is our most ambitious, exciting one yet!” –Wil Wagner

More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me, the new record from The Smith Street Band is at times dark, ferocious and heavy, while also being joyful, cheeky and full of the underdog spirit that made the band who they are. This record embodies the cohesion and growth shown by the band both musically and lyrically. Known for their breathless touring schedule the album was pieced together in the stolen downtime between their famously frenetic live shows.

The album’s twelve tracks follow lead singer Wil Wagner, more relatable and vulnerable than ever, as he tells the story of a relationship. While their past albums have had stories scattered through the songs, More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me follows a powerful narrative that is defined by Wagner’s heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics and frantic delivery of the words that mean so much to him.

On top of Wil’s growth and development as a songwriter the band are in powerful form after years of consistent touring. They have expanded their unique sound to fit in choirs, string sections, even synthesisers and electronic drum kits. This is The Smith Street Band at their passionate, heartbreaking, hope-tinged best and now is your chance to see it live.
