Clarity Records is excited to announce the release of WEST THEBARTON BROTHEL PARTY’s upcoming double a-side 7″ single “Red Or White / Dolewave”.

Coming off the back of a run of shows earlier this year (including Groovin’ The Moo, the JD Future Legends ‘Next On Tour’ showcase, and Adelaide’s ‘A Day Of Clarity’ Festival), Adelaide’s West Thebarton Brothel Party are back with a new single, a national tour (including BIGSOUND 2016), and the announcement of their signing to one of Australia’s premier booking agencies, 123 Agency. The band has also been named as ‘15 Artists to Watch’ by The AU Review in 2015, and triple j Unearthed also tipping their hat in their ‘Ones to Watch in 2016’ list.

The last six months have seen the Adelaide 7-piece release their single ‘Red Or White’ to critical praise and significant national and community radio play, with the track being added to triple j after premiering on Home and Hosed, and receiving a follow up feature play on Richard Kingsmill’s ‘2016’ program in the same week. Shortly after, the Thebbos were chosen to open Groovin’ The Moo in Oakbank, were triple j Unearthed’s ‘Feature Artist’, and co-headlined Adelaide’s ‘A Day Of Clarity’ Festival along with The Hard-Ons.

Nominated as ‘Best Live Act’ at the South Australian Music Awards in 2015, the band has also performed alongside international acts Wavves (USA) and Cloud Nothings (USA) as well as Australian artists – Courtney Barnett, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, British India, Northeast Party House, Philadelphia Grand Jury and Velociraptor.

West Thebarton Brothel Party will follow up the release of ‘Red or White’ with ‘Dolewave’, the second single from its forthcoming double a-side 7” vinyl out through Clarity Records on Friday, 2 September 2016.
Pre-Orders for the new 7″ single commence next week, more details soon.
