2013: The Year of The Beard.

group row

To all of our bearded fans, and far less importantly, our beardless fans who appreciate beards, we thought we’d give you an update on what to expect from us during the first half of 2013 – The Year of The Beard!

Shows in Australia (January / February)

The start of the year will see us playing selected shows around Australia including performances in Adelaide, Ballarat, Launceston, Melbourne, the Gold Coast, the Ballarat Beer Festival and the Tamworth Country Music Festival. We are proud of what we have achieved in Australia over the last four years – there are now more beards per capita than there have been since the 1970s, and attitudes towards beards and their owners are starting to change. Having said that, bearded Australians still face injustice every day, and we will never give up on our goal to turn this land we call home into the world’s first entirely-bearded nation.

Mini-World Tour: USA, Canada, Australia, UK & Europe (March – May)

After years of fighting beard discrimination on the home front, we are now ready to set our sights on the shaving epidemic that has gripped the entirety of western civilisation for over 100 years. In March we will play a handful of shows across the USA and Canada. Then we will be briefly heading home to perform at Byron Bay’s Bluesfest. In May we will finally get a chance to spread our bearded message to the people of the UK and Europe. Most of the dates for this tour are yet to be announced, so stay tuned for more information.

Australian Tour (June)

In June we will be back home for a full Australian tour that is sure to convince the few remaining doubters that growing and keeping a beard really is the single greatest and most meaningful experience a human being is capable of undertaking.

    Don’t see my response, so one more time. Tampa Florida is in serious need of a visit from missionaries to preach the Gospel of the Beard.

    Saw you at Ballart Beer Festival, great show. You should record and release a live album.

    I can’t get my kids to leave the house under most circumstances. They are willing, however, to travel from Melbourne to Canada to see a Beards show. Hope to learn of tour dates soon :)
