Announcing: Gangers, Chancers & the Craic – Our NEW ALBUM released July 6, 2018!

Screen Shot 2018-07-04 at 11.20.51 AM

It’s been more than a year since The Dram and the Fray came out and on July 6th, our long-awaited fifth album will be released! This one is a little more special than the others, however, as it was recorded, mixed and mastered here in Victoria by the acclaimed producer and sound engineer, Joby Baker! We had a great time recording it live off the floor with some incredible vintage equipment and managed to lay down a total of 18 tracks in two days, with a third day for final mixing and mastering! It includes some old favourites, as well as some new ones we think you’ll enjoy!

One of the songs we’re most excited about is our recording of the traditional Australian tune, Lachlan Tigers, which features the great Mick Slocum of the Australian band The Bushwackers on vocals (recorded in his own studio in Australia, sent over to Joby and then mixed with our track). Be sure to check it out!
