Australia’s Immigrant Union will embark on a cross-country tour of the United States this fall in support of their second full-length, Anyway, to be released on 9/23. With a psychedelic folk sound that frontman Brent DeBoer describes as “Spiritualized being baptised in a river of Creedence Clearwater,” In anticipation of the tour, the band is offering their new single, “The End Has Come,” as a free download, “The End Has Come” features Courtney Barnett, the track will be available to those who join Immigrant Union’s mailing list via the band’s official website.
It was the summer of 2004 when Brent DeBoer of The Dandy Warhols was killing some time in Australia and had a chance meeting with Melbourne’s Bob Harrow. This initial exchange led to a spontaneous trip to the country and an all-night session. The friendship grew.
DeBoer and Harrow soon recruited the talented vocalist and keyboardist, Peter Lubulwa, and the band quickly planted its roots in alt-country-folk, bound by a communal love for classic rock and roll. Part psychedelic folk, part traditional country rock, Immigrant Union have since built their name through stellar live performances at some of the Australia’s most iconic venues and boutique festivals.
