Boom Crash Opera Tour 2014

Re-born Aussie music legends, Boom Crash Opera have announced the release of a new greatest hits album, The Best Things featuring two brand new songs, as well as a four album box set, Rattle It Out, containing the band’s first three albums digitally re-mastered and a bonus 14 track rarities disc of never-before-released material from the 80s and 90s. They’ll be celebrating these catalogue additions with a national tour kicking off at The Northcote Social Club in their hometown of Melbourne on March 8 and heading through Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and finishing off in Perth in early May. With over five years between releases (acoustic album, Dancing In The Storm hit stores in May 2009), The Best Things includes all the Boom Crash Opera classics including Onion Skin, Hands Up In The Air, Her Charity plus two brand new songs, I Am and You Can’t Stop The Sun. Excited and reignited with passion, lead guitarist and chief songwriter Peter Farnan explains, “I love the idea that our successful songs scattered through the years, might have been a little part of peoples’ lives at different moments; a school memory, a hot summer at the beach, a huge gig. Hopefully by gathering the songs together into a body of work we are activating peoples’ memories of where they were, what they shared with others and what they felt at various times in their lives… And listening to the songs together has reinforced in my mind the idea that there really is a consistent band identity and sound running through all this material. And it is there in the new songs as well.” With an energetic and engaging live show, Boom Crash Opera are looking forward to performing songs from across the entire history of the band, including smashes from the early Countdown days spanning through to their well-loved tunes from the mid 90s. “We always play the hits but on this run we will also dip into songs that we've either never performed or haven't performed for 20 years or so,” explains Farnan. The Best Things and Rattle It Out are out now through Liberation Music and tickets to the national tour are available online and in stores now.
