With summer(time) just around the corner, Thirsty Merc are picking up the keys and getting ready to hit the road again, starting with headlining the 20th anniversary of the iconic Deni Ute Muster on Friday, 28 September through to New Year’s Eve in Far North Queensland.

Following a well-earned break off the back of their 60 Take Me Back anniversary tour shows, the “Merc” will be playing a mix of festivals – Caloundra Music Festival, Get Your Groove On, Park Custom Bike & Tattoo Show and co-headline shows at the Palms at Crown Melbourne and Chelsea Heights Hotel with the one and only Daryl Braithwaite.

Thirsty Merc formed in Sydney in 2002 releasing their debut EP, First Work, in September 2003, before being signed to Warner Music. The band’s big break came in 2004 with the release of their debut, self-titled, album which included the hits, Someday Someday and In The Summertime (the theme for Bondi Rescue since 2006).

Three more studio albums followed – Slideshows in 2007 (#4 ARIA Album) and Mousetrap Heart in 2010 (#14 on the ARIA Album chart) which included radio staples, 20 Good Reasons, Mousetrap Heart and Tommy and Krista. Their latest release, Shifting Gears, their first wholly independent and first new material in five years, was released in 2015.

“We’re excited to be returning to the stage to help kick off Summer, this time with a fantastic mix of Merc club shows, festival dates and double-headline gigs” Rai Thistlethwayte said today. “Please come along and help celebrate the best time of the year with us!”

Join the lads on tour this summer
