Today Melbourne folk-pop duo Pierce Brothers have released their latest single Back End Roads, the first
taste of new music that will be featured on their upcoming full-length debut album, Atlas Shoulders. The
album is set for release on October 26 and is now available for pre-order HERE. Fans who pre-order the
album will receive a special limited edition 7” vinyl single featuring Back End Roads as well as album track
Featuring drums reminiscent of Fleetwood Mac’s Dreams and a chorus embedded in the Australian folk
realm, Back End Roads is destined to be an instant live set fan favourite. Talking about the single the
brothers reminisced, “We wrote it about our favorite place on earth, Wilson’s Prom, and how it was when
we grew up there. It’s a summer vibe tune plain and simple. About getting away from the grind and a
throwback to the more mellow summer anthems that dominated our youth.”
Over the last year whilst touring Australia, Europe, South Africa and America, the brothers created what
would become their first full length album, Atlas Shoulders. The album brings together the stories of
experiences and influences they’ve had on the road, while also dealing with prevalent social issues such as
anxiety and depression.
Having established themselves as a figurehead of the folk, blues & roots community here in Australian and abroad, the band have toured relentlessly – honing their craft and gaining fans across the globe as they go.
The band’s music has grown with them over the years and has seen them release two Top 10 ARIA EPs
(The Records Were Ours and Into The Dirt), receive over 7 million global streams (1.7 million in Australia
since Jan 2015), as well as over half a million YouTube views.
Currently on tour in the UK and Europe supporting Tash Sultana, as well as performing their own near sold out headline shows, the boys will return home to Australia for the album release and their East Coast tour
dates in November, before again heading out on the road with Rodriquez, after being handpicked to
support his 2019 Day On The Green tour.
