The Medics Take ‘Foundations’ On The Road, Announce Tour Dates

Music is at its best when it’s unpredictable. When it comes packed with surprises, the unexpected. Truly great music has always been about challenging convention, the ‘didn’t see that coming moment’. It’s a tradition that’s at the heart of The Medics – as both people and as artists.

The Brisbane rock group have developed a unique sound that is all over their album Foundations, a record we rated as a “soaring, emotional, and polished debut.” Triple J featured it as their album of the week upon its May 18 release, along with its singles “Griffin”, “Joseph” and “Beggars”

The band’s story however, begins in Carins, far north Queensland and has seen their emergence as one of Australia’s most genuinely exciting new bands. Claiming accolades at the 2010 Deadly Awards, winning ‘Band of the Year’, as well as a Triple J Unearthed competition that put them on the line-up for Groovin’ The Moo in Townsville.

They were also the subject of a Foxtel documentary broadcast during NAIDOC week entitled Who We Are, and have since gone on to play at major national festivals including Splendour In The Grass, Big Day Out, Laneway, Woodford and The Dreaming.

Now the lads are taking their debut back out on the road, with a honed live show full of musical surprises as well as their own polished performance, on an epic, extended national tour spanning from July through to October.
