Sydney rockers Interim announce Escapism Australia tour



Sydney rockers Interim have announced the release date for their upcoming debut album Escapism, along with a string of dates around the country to celebrate its release.

Escapism, recorded at Airlock Studios in Brisbane over an intensive fortnight around Christmas 2016, has been slowly revealed via a series of well-received singles released monthly since January, and will now get its full release on the 8th of September, 2017. To celebrate the release the 5-piece are hitting the road for a series of shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Toowoomba, Newcastle and Hervey Bay.

Escapism marks a major milestone for a band that first met way back at high school in Toowoomba. It’s been a long 8 year journey with the band living together, moving to Brisbane 5 years ago, then Sydney two years ago. During this time members Alec Snow – Vocals, James Basnett – Guitar, Jock Houston – Bass, Vocals, Matt Hollonds – Drums, Vocals and Lachlan Becke – Guitar, have been working hard on distilling a sound that is uniquely their own, this album is the culmination of that journey. From scuzzy grunge, through to stomping blues throwdowns and soul strip-mined emotive ballads, Interim have delivered an album containing varied shades and hue.
