Crtive MGMT & Select Music presents Sly Withers and special guests Columbus and SEMANTICS, on tour nationally in May 2021 (note that all tickets purchased for the 2020 tour are still valid).

To follow up on the release of ‘Explode Into View’, the first single from their forthcoming new album, Sly Withers have announced they’ll be embarking on a national tour this year, working their way around capital cities and regional centres across the country. 

On their breakout 2019 EP, Gravis, and particularly its killer single ‘Lately’ ft. Carla Geneve, Sly Withers showed that they had tremendous potential to perhaps break free of the confines of the Australian punk and indie rock scene they were raised on, and make a name for themselves as their own unique entity. ‘Explode Into View’ is the fulfilment of that and then some. 

Nothing between then and now has changed in the band’s make-up. Same four members—Mata (guitar + vocals), Sam Blitvich (guitar + vocals), Joel Neubecker (drums) and Shea Moriarty (bass)—using the same producer as Gravis (Matthew Templeman at his studio in Mount Hawthorn), but now they possess another hard year on the road with several shows under their belts (including major sets at Falls Festival and supporting the likes of Amy Shark and Slowly Slowly), and a self-belief that can only be built on the back of hard work and a camaraderie forged across sticky floors and tour vans. The result is a towering sound that is much, much greater than the sum of its parts, yet reflects the depth of the emotional core of the band and the love they share for the music they make together.
