Tiny Ruins Album Preview show announced for April 14th

We are very excited to be having a double pre-launch concert! It’s our own, before the official launch of The Melbourne Folk Club on April 23rd (already SOLD OUT!!) and it’s also the pre-launch for Tiny Ruins new album Brightly Painted One, out on May 2nd through Spunk Records.

Tiny Ruins has been one of our favourites ever since they released their stunning debut album Some Were Meant For Sea in 2011. Originally from New Zealand, Tiny Ruins have been touring around UK and Europe for the past two years, and recently toured with Calexico in Australia. This record will be out on Bella Union in the UK, and with all the buzz building, we get the feeling this year is going to be huge for them.

Click on BUY TICKETS to grab them before they sell out – very limited amount for her only Australian preview show. Support from The Tiger and Me.
