Late last year The Holy Sea returned to the spotlight with the release of the double-A side singles ‘Bad Luck / King of Palm Island’ and national tour. They received unanimously high praise for both the songs and their live shows right across the country.

The release of the band’s new album ‘Ghosts of The Horizon’ was delayed by a few months earlier this year, but now, almost 12 months later, the band are happy to announce the album will be in stores in the last week of September, with a national tour from October 2nd.

The new album is a stunning work that has the hallmarks of a landmark Australian album. It’s an album as grand and sweeping and complex as its muse, this promised, yet conflicted land of Australia. The stories it holds are rich and evocative, delving deeply into the national psyche.

Haunting and expansive, it’s a brilliant foray into the rich Australian folk-rock tradition that brings to mind the band’s influences such as The Triffids, The Go-Betweens, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Paul Kelly and The Drones – but these are inspirations that have been imbibed and transformed into a sound that is uniquely and beautifully, The Holy Sea.

The Holy Sea play The Evelyn on Saturday 9th October. Tickets available at
