Adelaide rock wunderkinds Bad//Dreems have finally announced the news we’ve all been waiting for. Debut album and national tour, “Hiding to Nothing.”
The lads have recently returned to home soil fresh from conquering the UK, touring extensively and appearing at popular festivals ‘Hand Made,’ ‘Live at Leeds’ and ‘The Great Escape.’ Since then they’ve played some shows throughout Australia whilst applying the finishing touches to the Mark Opitz (AC/DC, Cold Chisel, INXS) produced full length debut album.
Largely centred around their relationship to their native Adelaide, the album will contain their already-released hit singles 'Cuffed and Collared' and 'Dumb Ideas', along with the recently-released ‘Hiding to Nothing’.
The release is another notch on the belt of Bad//Dreems meteoric rise to the forefront of Australian music after chalking up support spots along the likes of The Preatures and Wavves, and appearing on the bills of popular festivals Laneway and Groovin the Moo.
The album is due to be released on 21st August 2015, before the tour kicks off at Fowler’s Live on 25th September. The band will then travel to Sydney, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne and Fremantle before finishing up at the Amplifier Bar in Perth on 31st October.
