There’s a new Drewcast out!:
I filmed this a while ago, but looking back, maybe it’s part of the reason that we chose to cover “sabotage”… ha ha. enjoy!

Melbourne, you are truly amazing- we can’t wait to play songs for you. ps. this australian tour is flying by way too fast.

Now I had to skip a few posts because Jon, William Fitzsimmons (LOVE HIM!) and Brooke Fraser are starting an “imaginary band” and you have to follow ALL their tweets to get a gist of the conversation! Check it out:
From William Fitzsimmons:
RT @torriegray I’ve decided @jonathanforeman, @brookefraser & @wfitzsimmons need to start a band & make an album together

From Jon:
@brookefraser & @wfitzsimmons So does this mean we just started a band!? More importantly, what are we calling ourselves?

From William Fitzsimmons:
“Kiwisurfbeard” RT @jonathanforeman @brookefraser & @wfitzsimmons does this mean we just started a band!? …what are we calling ourselves?

From Brooke Fraser:
@wfitzsimmons @jonathanforeman We should get one of those machines to combine all our faces and make one face and that should be the cover

From Jon:
RT @brookefraser “We should combine all our faces and make one face and that should be the cover.” absofreakinlutely

Footage of the show!:

Because of the time change, the Melbourne show already happened, and we hear it rocked. Anthony reports: Just got back from the Melbourne show. Man it was packed, I was right up the front and it was sweeeeeet! The Meet and Greet was great too!

They did all of Hello Hurricane and then Stars, Oh Gravity, 24, Meant to Live, This Is Your Life and Dare You To Move.
