Adelaide power duo Filthy Lucre are back with a definite harder edge, a new single and a national tour announce.
‘Prescription’ is the band’s first release since 2016, and is a new heavier direction for the band, previously known for their blues rock style.
Filthy Lucre will be taking the new single and a show on the road sharing their famous on-stage energy at venues across the country in April.
In the band’s first road jaunt for over a year, the Adelaide riff-makers intend to reaffirm their position in the national and international hard rock scene over the next twelve months.
Drummer Ed Noble is thrilled to have the new single out in the world ready for the big tour.
“Prescription is everything Filthy Lucre but distilled and condensed into a faster paced, harder hitting, and more aggressive piece than the band has put out previously. Big riffs, barbaric drums, and captivating vocals make this single a standout call-to-attention in the world of stoner/desert rock,” he says.
The tour sees the band line up at annual Blues/Rock/Psych event Mojo Burning in Brisbane alongside the likes of Tumbleweed and The Vasco Era as well as joining forces with Greek heavy lords 1000Mods in their home town of Adelaide amongst regular headline dates through NSW, VIC, ACT, SA and QLD.
With previous success in landing supports for such epic bands as Truckfighters, Radio Moscow and ex-QOTSA legend Nick Oliveri where the band played a full Kyuss set, Filthy Lucre are no stranger to hard work and underground success, hitting Australia hard on top of trips to Europe where the band smashed out sets at Lake on Fire Festival (Austria), Free tree festival (Austria) and Sound Violence Festival (Portugal) along with recording albums with Sylvia Massy (Tool/RHCP).
Catch Adelaide power houses Filthy Lucre as they return to the drivers seat to punch out new heavy single ‘Prescription’ with a run of dates around the country.
