Ball Park Music are ecstatic to announce national spring tour dates and reveal the title and release date of their brand new record.
It was a huge day for Ball Park Music. The much-loved Brisbane band had a trio of announcements guaranteed to excite their fans.
The band introduced their new album – ‘Every Night The Same Dream‘. The album was mostly an analogue affair, recorded to four-track tape at Sound Recordings in Castlemaine, Victoria with award winning producer and longtime collaborator Matt Redlich (Holy Holy, Emma Louise, Ainslie Wills).
‘Every Night The Same Dream’ will be released on Friday 19th August, 2016 via Stop Start/Inertia. The new record is the follow up to the band’s hugely successful and chart topping 2014 album ‘Puddinghead‘.
Ball Park Music will also be making a triumphant return to the national stage this September to celebrate the release of their new album. Supported by triple j, The ‘Every Night The Same Dream‘ tour will take in a swag of dates in cities right across Australia, visiting every single state from the east coast to the west, including the band’s first ever performance in Alice Springs. Special guests The Creases and Sahara Beck will be along for the ride too.

Front man Sam Cromack had this to share…
“It feels like a lifetime has passed since our last big Australian tour. We were lucky enough to devote a year to writing, relaxing, European touring, festivals spots and an unforgettable (well, actually, I can’t remember much of it) week in Austin, TX for SXSW.
Then we bunkered down to chip away at our new record, Every Night The Same Dream, which you’ll all get to hear soon enough. We’re stoked. Our hearts are going to burst. The response to Pariah and Nihilist Party Anthem has been mind-blowing.
We’re chomping at the bit to get back on the road and play a bunch of new material as well as all the old faves. Well, most of the old faves. A new record is great because it means you can take some of the old songs that you’re bored with to the back paddock and shoot them. Nah, just joking. Maybe. You never know. See you soon.”
Ball Park Music will also be part of this year’s annual Splendour In The Grass festivities in Byron Bay this July.
