Auckland – Smoking Martha (AUS) NZ Tour with Tablefox & She Loves You
December 2, 2017 @ 8:00 pm
Join us in Auckland Dec 2nd at the Thirsty Dog.
Following their commanding tracks “Say You’re Mine” and “What’s Her Name?” Smoking Martha step barefoot into the flames with a smoldering new single “Stranger Things”. Coming off their album debut album In Deep, “Stranger Things” the dynamic five piece stay true to their signature hooky riffs and alluring vocals.
Lead vocalist Tasha D describes the new single as a, “dynamic track with 2 songs in one with an explosive ending. It’s a song about our struggles our dreams and desires tying together the overall theme of the album “In deep”– how far we’ve come and how much further we have to go.”
The heavy hitters teamed up with Matthew Bartlem from?Loose Stone Studios (Matt Corby, Dead Letter Circus) to create their debut album “In deep” with “Strangers Things” being the final track to end with a bang.
Guitarist Mick Broome describes the recording experience as “…an intense but relaxed vibe. We worked really hard which brought out the best possible takes. We found with enough push we could actually play better than we thought we could. Matt was able to drag out performances that really captured the energy.”
To add to Queensland’s hard rockers success, they prove to be one of a kind scoring international and National supports with, Everclear (USA), Prophets Of Addiction (USA), Uriah Heep (UK), Seether (SA) and Cherie Currie (The Runaways). 2017 continues to look incredibly bright for Brisbane’s ambitious rockers.
Tablefox recently released “Nothing Ever Changes”, a rollicking arena ready single taken from their forthcoming album You And I Will Find A Way. After a member change and national tours they’ve just announced the release of their second album and an Australian tour in November!
You And I Will Find A Way was recorded at Tsunami studios with head engineer Dave Trail. Built in an abandoned hospital turned studio, Tsunami studios helped draw out deeper emotions throughout the recording as Matt Carson (Lead Guitar) elaborates,
Lyrically the songs came from singer Clint Bell’s life experiences. Dealing with life, loss and how we all cope with the range of human emotion. From songs dealing with themes of internet dating or ‘the one you can’t have’, the album isn’t so much a deep dive into Bell’s own personal life, but more so his reflection on the emotional journey we all find ourselves on.
Auckland’s 5 piece powerhouse have made a serious mark in the New Zealand music scene over the past few years gaining support from the two major NZ rock stations The Rock and Radio Hauraki and completing 3 successful national tours. Along the way, Tablefox have scored noteworthy reviews in support for their commanding debut album.
SHE LOVES YOU
The Alt Rock mind child spawned out of the loins that are 2am screamers, late night wine-o’s, drunken demos, Thai take out, and a deep appreciation for that questionable but lovable 2008 emo phase and you get the eclectic sound of these SLY babes
