It is with regret that Melbourne band Husky reschedule their Castlemaine, Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and Newcastle tour dates. The change of dates is due to a lengthy (and untimely) illness for lead singer, Husky Gawenda.
“Dear friends, I’ve come down with Glandular Fever (also called Infectious Mononucleosis or the Kissing Disease). I’ve been in bed for two weeks already and the doc’s orders are bed for another couple of weeks. I’ve got my guitar, a pile of books and a plethora of herbs to beat this thing and to help pass the time. I’m really sorry about the change of dates but I’m gonna make sure I get back to full strength pronto so I can see you guys really soon. I hope you excellent ticket holders can all make the rescheduled shows. I can’t wait to see you all there! Lots of love, HG.” – Husky Gawenda

Husky recently released their third studio album Punchbuzz, which debuted at #32 on the ARIA Albums Chart. Recorded in Melbourne with producer Matt Redlich, the captivating sound of Punchbuzz is of a band re-birthed, having drawn upon new inspirations to deliver their most exciting and experimental record yet. Punchbuzz follows on from 2011’s breakthrough debut Forever So (released internationally via SubPop) and 2014’s stellar sophomore Ruckers Hill.
Punchbuzz was last week’s feature album on Double J and already has won much praise:
✭✭✭✭ Tough indie-rock dashed with psychedelic synth shimmer, Punchbuzz is a surprise package full of new sonic detours – The Music
Everything Husky put their name against feels incredibly assured – CLASH
A wonderfully moody shift into atmospheric indie rock that serves as the perfect next step for the accomplished duo – Tone Deaf
Husky step away from their folk roots towards a propulsive rock sound without breaking stride – Music Feeds
Underneath the saturation of dreamy synths and keyboards, Husky’s songwriting skills are still highly discernible – 4ZZZ
Following their Australian tour dates, the duo will embark on their largest European tour to date in October, playing 26 shows in two months, visiting 11 countries.
