The Smith Street Band
It’s been just over five year since The Smith Street Band released their debut full length, No One Gets Lost Anymore. In that time, the four Melbourne locals have done things their own way and at their own pace: full steam ahead.
Released in 2014 to critical acclaim, The Smith Street Band's last offering Throw Me In The River landed triple j Album of the Week and debuted in the ARIA top 20 album chart. It scored the band a nomination for ‘Best Independent Hard Rock, Heavy or Punk Album’ at the 2015 AIR Awards, ‘Live Act of the Year’ at the Rolling Stone Awards and took out the gong for ‘Best Live Band’ at The Age Music Victoria Awards. Lead single Surrender came in at #69 in triple j’s Hottest 100.
The band have now clocked up over fifteen international tours, selling out shows everywhere from London to New York and appearing on some of the world’s top notch festivals, including Reading & Leeds in the UK, Belgium’s Groezrock, and Splendour in the Grass. Be sure to catch them back on their home turf in Melbourne at St Kilda Festival.
