Waifs celebrate quarter-century with tour

Jessica CuthbertAlbany Advertiser

To celebrate 25 years, Albany’s the Waifs will hit the road for a national tour including a show in Denmark on Sunday, March 5.

The band are also releasing their 14-track studio album, Ironbark, along with 11 bonus tracks, making a rousing collection of 25 songs, to celebrate 25 years.

These fresh tunes will be recorded in true Waifs style in a make-shift studio in the unfinished kitchen of Josh Cunningham’s rural retreat on the NSW South Coast over two weeks.

Ironbark is a double album made for the loyal fan base, for those who have been there from the start, and for those who have become fans of the band along the way.

The band are giving away free download bonus songs each week until the official album release on March 3, and the album will be available for pre-order at a discounted price from their website today and from various retail outlets for the first 25 days of release as a gesture of thanks to the Waifs’ fans.

There will also be amazing ticket and album bundles available for all headline concerts so head to the waifs.comfor details.
