KURT VILE & RVG Cracking double bill

We don’t know which we’re more excited about here, the return of Pennsylvania’s finest Kurt Vile & the Violators with a new album in tow, or a long awaited show from Melbourne post punks RVG.

Together they hit the Rosemount Hotel on Sunday, April 28, 2019 in a double bill for the ages.

It follows a big day of news for Vile, with his new album Bottle It In announced for a Friday, October 12 release. Today’s announcement is accompanied by the release of a nearly 10 minute new song titled Bassackwards, which follows previously released single Loading Zones, an ode to the parking challenges in Vile’s native Philadelphia.

The epic, loping Bassackwards is said to be the album’s beating heart. “I was on the ground circa Planet Earth, but out of sorts,” he sings over a gently psychedelic bed of backmasked guitars. “But I snapped back, baby, just in time to jot it down.”

RVG, meanwhile, released one of the best albums of 2017 with A Quality Of Mercy and we’ve been patiently waiting for a tour ever since. Check out the X-Press 9/10 review HERE.

Bottle It In is out Friday, October 12. Kurt Vile & the Violators and RVG play the Rosemount Hotel on Sunday, April 28, 2019. Tickets available from Oztix.
