Something For Kate Explode In All Three Dimensions

30/08/2001 01:14

Something rare is happening, you can feel it unfolding across airwaves and on stages across Australia: Something for Kate are evolving into one of the biggest and most important contemporary music acts we have.

Something rare is happening, you can feel it unfolding across airwaves and on stages across Australia: Something for Kate are evolving into one of the biggest and most important contemporary music acts we have.

There’s no trickery, no hype. In just two months their third album, ECHOLALIA, has become one of the highest-selling Australian albums of 2001. Existing fans and the many new converts have found a touchstone in guitarist/vocalist Paul Dempsey’s songs.

The sense of belonging is only heightened by the sell-out live performances Dempsey, bassist Stephanie Ashworth and drummer Clint Hyndman are inspiring. Their just completed “Echo-la-la-lia” national tour saw numerous full houses, including three Metro Theatre’s in Sydney and two nights at Melbourne’s Forum Theatre.

At the same time the album’s first two singles – ‘Monsters’ and the current top 40 hit ‘Three Dimensions’ – have been cutting across all barriers on radio, igniting on bandwidths from Triple J to major commercial stations right through to the full breadth of regional radio.

With ECHOLALIA still surging in the national top 20 after nine weeks, Something for Kate will be touring Australia for the their third time this year, joining good friends Powderfinger on their “New Suburban Fables” tour in October and November.

There will be further singles and touring as summer approaches, but they’re just elements in the equation. What’s happening is larger than this and the moment it took can vary. For some it was the first time they heard the uplifting chorus of “Monsters” coming out of the car radio, for others it was seeing the band live and feeling that shiver that comes with the live rendition of “You Only Hide”.

Whenever or wherever it happened, one thing is for sure: it is happening. Don’t miss out.

US indie rockers Crooked Fingers and Brisbane three-piece Gota Cola have been announced as the support acts to Something For Kate on the forthcoming Echo-la-la-lia Tour.

Crooked Fingers is the latest project from Eric Bachmann, who is best remembered for his recent work with the seminal indie-rock band Archers of
Loaf, and his solo sound scape outings as the neoclassical Barry Black.
Bachmann is an artist who’s constantly pushing the envelope of modern music and Crooked Fingers is no exception.

Crooked Fingers will play all shows on the Echo-la-la-lia Tour, except for Brisbane. Gota Cola will perform on all dates.

Under 18 fans now have the opportunity to catch the tour at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne, on Sunday, August 19. See the listing below for full details

Meanwhile, Something For Kate’s third album, ‘Echolalia’ has been certified gold, with sales in excess of 35 000 units. This is an outstanding effort, considering the album has been on sale for a mere two weeks. Its predecessor, ‘Beautiful Sharks,’ took a full year to reach gold.

‘Three Dimensions’ the second single from ‘Echolalia,’ has now been added to high rotation on Triple J and across the board on Sydney’s Nova 96.9, and will be available in stores from 6th August

Something For Kate’s Monster Debut

03/07/2001 01:16

Echolalia – number two on ARIA albums chart

Melbourne trio, Something For Kate have debuted their third album, “Echolalia” at number two on Australia’s national ARIA albums chart.

Propelled by the hit single “Monsters”, “Echolalia” beat all comers this week, apart from the film soundtrack, Moulin Rouge. So strong has the enthusiasm of fans been that even SFK’s first album, “Elsewhere For Eight Minutes”, returned to the charts.

On the ARIA Alternative chart it was a Something For Kate trifecta, with “Echolalia” at number one, “Elsewhere For Eight Minutes” at twelve and the band’s sophomore long-player, “Beautiful Sharks” at sixteen.

The next step for Something For Kate is the aptly titled Echo-la-la-lia Tour, which commences in August.

Following on from the sold-out Mythology tour that wound its way across Australia throughout May, The Echo-la-la-lia Tour will kick off in Canberra on August 8 and conclude in Brisbane on the 31st of the month. In between the tour will take in all mainland state capitals and a couple of key regional centres.

Tickets for The Echo-la-la-lia Tour will be on sale from July 2 and special guests for each date will soon be announced.
