Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit

^^

When: Sunday 25th March
Where: Enmore Theatre

With Special Guests: Deer Tick

Love Police are delighted to announce the return of two key players from the fertile US Americana scene, with Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit and Deer Tick returning to Australia for a joint tour next March! In just ten action-packed years the career of Jason Isbell has transformed from being third-string singer-songwriter in legendary Southern rockers Drive-By Truckers to one of the most revered voices on the American circuit. Influenced by the soul music so intrinsically tied to his homeland of Northern Alabama as well as the more traditional country and folk staples, the songwriting of Jason Isbell is rich and powerful and disarmingly expressive. American Songwriter Magazine recently espoused, “There’s no better songwriter on the planet at the moment, no one operating with the same depth, eloquence or feeling”. Backed by his road-hardened band The 400 Unit, Isbell is one of the most potent acts on the road today, performing some of the finest songs penned in the last decade. His recent sixth solo album The Nashville Sound debuted at #4 on the US Billboard 200 chart, also topping the US Country, US Folk and US Rock charts (as did its 2015 predecessor Something More Than Free). Something More Than Free also scored Isbell twin Grammys for Best Americana Album and Best American Roots Song (for single 24 Frames), as well as taking home Album Of The Year at the prestigious Americana Music Honors and Awards ceremony.

Jake Bugg

^^

When: Thursday 19th April
Where: Factory Theatre

Winding his way back to Australian shores with brand new fourth album Hearts That Strain tucked under his arm, Nottingham native Jake Bugg has definitely learned a thing or two from five years of constant recording and touring. To call him a veteran at the tender age of 23 might be a bit of a stretch, but a catalogue of tunes as diverse as they are thrilling speaks volumes for this prodigiously talented troubadour. Hitting Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane for three huge solo acoustic shows, Bugg is well known to audiences down under for his boundless energy and shopworn tenderness, with his visits always attracting fevered excitement from both locals and ex-pats alike. Recorded in Nashville with Black Keys frontman (and super producer) Dan Auerbach, Hearts That Strain shows a side of Jake Bugg rarely revealed on his previous three studio albums. It could be the secrets of the road or maybe just one too many drives through the American South, but there is a distinctive country feel running throughout songs like How Soon The Dawn and Waiting. The latter even features a duet with Noah Cyrus - of that Cyrus family. Yep, Billie Ray’s other daughter does her Daddy proud on a heartbreaking piano ballad that shows just how far Bugg has come from his early days hurtling through breakneck numbers like Lightning Bolt and Trouble Town. Not that he doesn’t enjoy levelling the odd audience with these early gems. In fact, it’s his ability to mix countrified crooning with rawkus romping that makes Bugg such an undeniable presence on stage. These effortless twists and turns have seen Jake Bugg cultivate an adoring fanbase across the world and especially here in Australia. All four of his records have hit the Top 10 in his native UK and he will surely be welcomed to Australia with open arms for this latest run of shows.
