Press release:

Having traversed more of Australia than most over the past 18 months, with an extensive touring schedule, South Summit are today releasing their new EP ‘Tales Of The Yeti’; an expansive, probing & multi-faceted 6-track that reflects the journey they have all been on. From late night jams, to writing on the road, South Summit wanted to explore every aspect & realm of their influences, as they worked them all into ‘Tales Of The Yeti’. Featuring previous singles ‘Just Like You’, ‘I Feel It’, ‘Tuned In’ & ‘Sidelines’, the band also added new tracks ‘Dreaming’ & ‘Fallen Friend’ to round out the release.

Recorded back in their hometown of Perth, the band joined up again with longtime collaborator & producer Dave Parkin (Spacey Jane, Tired Lion, Bob Evans) of Blackbird Sound Studio. His guidance helped to take the formative South Summit jam sessions & mold their ideas into fully formed arrangements. This gave the band the freedom to experiment with styles, genres & themes, not being held down by preconceived notions & truly allowing them to discover what makes the South Summit sound.

In celebration of the release of ‘Tales Of The Yeti’, South Summit will be heading out on their largest & broadest headline tour to date. Taking their songs internationally for the first time, the band will be headed over to New Zealand, to coincide with six Australian headline dates. South Summit are moving from rising-stars, to headliners within their own rights. Whilst the band have been playing ‘Tales Of The Yeti’ live for a while now, this tour will also mark the first chance for fans to sing along with the tracks, with the release of the EP.
