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.

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
