Today marks the release of The Smith Street Band’s latest album, ‘Unplugged in Wombat State Forest’. Ten tracks reworked and recorded live at the band’s Bush House Studio, released on the band’s Pool House Records.
This week the band showcase the album with full band, stripped back, semi acoustic, COVID safe, seated shows over three sold out nights at Melbourne’s iconic Forum Theatre before heading to Sydney to play at the Enmore Theatre next week.
The band have also recently announced two very special shows in Brisbane with the Brisbane Symphony Orchestra at The Fortitude Music Hall on May 21 and 22.
The new album follows on from a huge year of releases last year. In April they landed their first #1 on the ARIA Album chart with their fifth studio album ‘Don’t Waste Your Anger’. They also released two digital only live albums, ‘Live At The Triffid’ and ‘Viva La Rev’ which charted at #4 and #30 respectively. Frontman Wil Wagner also released ‘Spiralling’ – his first solo album in eight years and his first top 10 solo recording, charting at #8 on the ARIA Album charts.
