2017 marks 25 years of The Waifs! To celebrate and commemorate, the band will be hitting the road for a mammoth national tour, and are releasing their fourteen track studio album, ‘Ironbark’, along with 11 bonus tracks making a rousing collection of 25 songs, to celebrate 25 years. Recorded in true Waifs style in a make shift studio in the unfinished kitchen of Josh Cunningham’s rural retreat on the NSW South Coast across two weeks.
‘Ironbark’ is a double album made for their incredibly loyal and loving fan base, for those who have been there from the start, and for those who have become fans of the band along the way.
From this Tuesday January 10, The Waifs will be giving away free download bonus songs each week until the official album release on March 3rd. ‘Ironbark’ will be available for pre-order at a very discounted price from their website from Thurs February 12 and from various retail outlets for the first 25 days of release as a gesture of thanks to fans. There will also be amazing ticket and album bundles for all headline concerts available so head to thewaifs.com for details.
