22 NEWS MILDURA WEEKLY FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2015 By VINNIE RODI ENERGETIC homegrown rockers Jackson Firebird are gearing up for a bumper 2015, with members Dale Hudak and Brendan Harvey to kick-start the new year with a road trip around Australia. Taking to the road as part of their ‘Bang The Mohican Tour,’ Jackson Firebird will visit Melbourne, Manly, Syd- ney, Adelaide, Byron Bay and Brisbane as part of the two- month tour, which caps off a busy time for the pair, who have spent much of the past year touring overseas while also working on their second full-length album. Jackson Firebird guitarist and lead singer, Brendan Har- vey, said the duo was excited to once again head out on the road. “The past three years have been hectic,” he said. “Af- ter we released our 2012 al- bum ‘Cock Rockin’ it’s been one tour after the next. “The majority of our time has been spent overseas, so it’s nice to tour Australia again after a little time away. “We’ve gone on to play in Europe and Brazil in that time, with Germany in par- ticular a highlight. “The crowds love their rock over there, and the ven- ues always looked after us. “Again it’s surreal look- ing back to where we started, playing gigs at The Sandbar in Mildura. “Never did I think we would get to this point in our careers, as Dale and I origi- nally started Jackson Firebird for a bit of fun. “It’s turned out to be a helluva ride, and even when you think it might be wind- ing down something like this tour, and the prospect of a new album, pops up.” Since 2012, Jackson Fire- bird have spent the major- ity of their time playing club shows and festivals in Aus- tralia and overseas, while also spending time in Austin, where they recorded their sec- ond album with renowned producer Chris ‘Frenchie’ Smith. “We’ve just finished re- cording the new album, which will be out in May this year,” Brendan said. “At the moment we don’t have a name for it, but we’ve had a lot of fun working on it. “We were very lucky enough to have the chance to spend three-and-a -half weeks recording in Austin with ‘Frenchie’ – who is a great producer. “Frenchie has a really cool vibe, and expressed a real in- terest in working with us. “We actually stayed at his place for the three weeks we were there, and while that became hard at time because you’re literally around these people all the time, it was great to spend three weeks fo- cussed on music.” • Continued Page 24 Jackson Firebird ready to rock on national stage Deakin Avenue, Mildura | Phone 5023 0531 www.milduraworkers.com.au Available at participating stores only.
