“GOOD” is the brand new full-length album from Melbourne’s Toehider. Led by singer and multi-instrumentalist Mike Mills, in collaboration with graphic artist Andrew Saltmarsh, it’s the third album by the genre-hopping Toehider and the eighteenth release overall in the past six years. Mills’ incredible versatility has seen Toehider easily claim the mantle of Australia’s most prolific progressive rock outfit, having issued 12 EPs in 12 months to kickstart the group’s career.
‘Good’ sees it’s release on Friday October 19th via Bird’s Robe Records.
The new album is heralded by lead track ‘This Conversation Is Over’ which premiered on triple j last week. The single is accompanied by a Peter Gabriel-inspired music video featuring the incredible original artwork of Andrew Saltmarsh and a rare music video appearance by Mike Mills himself.
The forthcoming album follows a number of milestones for the band. Toehider will perform at this year’s ProgPower Festival in Cologne, Germany, alongside fellow Australians Voyager and sleepmakeswaves, as well as UK heavyweights TesseracT. Mike Mills will also feature for the second time as a featured vocalist in a European theatre production of Dutch composer Ayeon’s prog-rock-opera material, as well as appearing on Ayreon’s ‘The Source’ record alongside James LaBrie (Dream Theater).
Toehider and Mills have seen their profile increase considerably since the release of 2011’s ‘To Hide Her’ and 2014’s ‘What Kind of Creature Am I?’. Earning triple j airplay, extensive touring around Australia, supports for Devin Townsend, The Beards, Twelve Foot Ninja & The Protomen. Mills also went viral with a jaw-dropping cover of Kate Bush’s ‘Wuthering Heights’ hitting over 600,000 views.
With Australian live dates to be announced soon, as well as an imminent return to Europe – it’s time to return to the fantastic world of Toehider once again.
