Joe’s got your needs fully charged

Eskimo Joe will be playing live at the Ferntree Gully Hotel. 107730

ESKIMO Joe is coming to town with a fully electric and fully eclectic show premiering songs from a new album.
To coincide with the premiere of the band’s new video accompanying its new single Got What You Need, Eskimo Joe is proud to announce a string of dates for the Wastelands national tour.
Fully electric and fully eclectic, the shows will premiere songs from the new album and feature some of the well-known and much loved hits.
This is the band’s sixth studio album of the same title, Wastelands, and will be released through Dirt Diamonds Productions /Inertia on Friday 20 September. Early August, the band released a taste of some new music from Wastelands, streaming the beautiful Running Out of Needs across the band’s social networking sites and in conjunction with selected media partners.
Running Out of Needs is a song that maps the familiar and loved Eskimo Joe sound of the last few albums to the new synth laden sound of the first official single Got What You Need.
While undeniably Eskimo Joe, from the opening key lines and stunning falsetto, it is clear the band has turned a corner and ventured into new aural territory with this new release.
To coincide with the album release, Eskimo Joe is delighted to announce that it will be joined on its forthcoming tour by indie-pop maestro Pluto Jonze, aka Lachlan Nicolson.
Pluto delivered the riff driven Plastic Bag in a Hurricane achieving high rotation airplay across Triple J and community radio.
Eskimo Joe will be playing the Ferntree Gully Hotel on Friday 18 October.
Tickets available through the venue, call 9758 6544.
