Aussie legends Eskimo Joe have shared another new track, unveiling their new single 99 Ways. The trio have also announced a string of live shows across the country taking place this March and April.
Written during isolation, the brazen love song that navigates feelings of loneliness and heartbreak. The track brings all of that Eskimo Joe goodness, with frontman Kav Temperley's commanding vocals capturing your attention from start to finish. On the release, the rock icons are better than ever, showcasing their incredible musician twenty years on from their formation.
Speaking of the track, Temperley shares: “99 Ways is an isolation love song. I started writing this song in the first week of isolation when I was stuck in my bedroom with a bad fever, we didn't know what it was and as I'd just returned from the states, we thought it best to isolate me from the rest of the family - luckily i had a piano in my room! Isolation is something the whole world has had to go through, and it's been tough but sometimes you can only understand what someone else is going through if you have been through it yourself.”
After a seven year hiatus, Eskimo Joe are jumping right back into the grove of things, with the band set to hit the road next month! The tour is set to visit Perth, Adelaide, Hobart, Melbourne, Thirroul, Sydney, and Brisbane on what is dubbed the Black Fingernails Red Wine In The City Tour. The trio will be performing their records Black Fingernails, Red Wine and A Song Is A City back to back at the shows.
“Some of these songs have never been played live before, but every song on each of these albums means so much to us and signifies such an important time in our lives and our career as a band. We can’t wait to relive them all with you" the band share.
99 Ways is out now! Listen to the song below. Tickets for the Black Fingernails Red Wine In The City Tour go on sale next Friday, 19th February. Check out all the tour dates and information below.
