Sly Withers - Gravis EP Tour
Riding high off releasing back-to-back big singles, Perth indie punk outfit Sly Withers are pleased to announce the Gravis EP Tour, in support of their much-anticipated debut EP. The new record is set for a September 13 release via Dew Process and Universal Music Australia and can be pre-ordered from https://SlyWithers.lnk.to/Gravis
Alongside ‘Lately’ (featuring fellow West Australian star on the rise Carla Geneve) and ‘Sad Guy,’ Gravis features four more tracks that stand as the sum of years of hard work gigging around Perth, touring the country, and writing song after song after song that has maneuvered them into this exciting chapter of their career.
“We’ve been working real hard on this sh*t for six years,” says guitarist and singer Sam Blitvich. “We’ve learned to write together, we learned to play together, and we learned to play live shows together and be a band. We’ve done everything for such a long time and we’ve put the work in over the years and it’s really nice to get the pay-off for all that hard work.”
Those hard yards have recently paid off by earning the band regular triple j play, widespread media praise, and extremely some juicy support slots. They’ve just finished blowing the doors open for melodic hard rockers Slowly Slowly on their sell-out Australian tour. And it was recently announced that chart-topper and not-so-low-key pop punk fan Amy Shark is taking the boys on the road for a regional Australia tour. Tickets for those shows are on sale now at amyshark.com
Consisting of members Jono Mata (guitar / vox), Blitvich (guitar / vox), Joel Neubecker (drums) and Shea Moriarty (bass), Sly Withers have steadily built a fan and critical following thanks to songs like ‘Lately’ and ‘Sad Guy,’ as well as the independently released singles ‘Closer,’ ‘Pleb,’ and ‘Google Maps,’ which has earned them props from national tastemakers like triple j Unearthed, The Music, Pilerats, Life Without Andy and Hhhhappy.
