Press release:

Back by popular demand and intrigue, from the land of grass without mirrors... come The Babe Rainbow.

Sun-kissed pop stars from Australia cross the pond to New Zealand after their last sold out tour demanded their return. With 3 headline shows, and 3 festival performances including a headline slot at the inaugural sold out Tora Bombora festival, Soundsplash and Nest Fest (alongside Connan Mockasin and the Family Band).

After a furious and frantic 2016 and 2017 weaving through various parts of the globe, 2018 has seen the band weaving rainbow charming audiences at the touring Laneway Festival through Australia, alongside (Anderson Paak and War on Drugs), and no sooner had the tour ended and the band quickly retreated with producer Wayne Connolly to the homey hills of Byron Bay, to record their second album Double Rainbow.

Thanks to the open heart of Music Farm studio, the new album has been laid to the tape machine. Double Rainbow is the sophomore album by the Babe Rainbow and it is instore and online now.
