Ben Salter is releasing his third solo album, Back Yourself, through ABC Music on 1st September. Recorded in Salter’s new home of Tasmania over the past twelve months, it is another eclectic collection of songs ranging from acoustic ballads to prog-metal work outs. An artistic tour de force, It is sure to fail to win him the widespread commercial success he has half-heartedly aspired to for the past twenty years. Armed with a freshly minted band, Salter will be hitting the road in October and November attempting to sell his nebulous message, and hopefully some physical copies of his new album, to the people of Australia. Watch the clip for debut single “Isolationism” HERE 

Joining Salter on this epic journey of discovery (well most of it anyway) will be Adelaide’s very own answer to Pete Townsend, David Blumberg. Blumberg is well known to Adelaide audiences for his work in bands such as The Cowboys of Love and Men With Chips. However this year saw the release of his magnum opus - Gertrude, a concept album about a bored princess and the brailway gauges of South Australia. He’ll be bringing his Maraby Band along to a bunch of the shows to help him realise this truly unique vision. Have a listen HERE <https://drongotracks.bandcamp.com/releases>
