GRAFTON girls and international stars The McClymonts are gearing up for a big day.

May 18 sees the release of new album Two Worlds Collide, as well as a huge concert at Grafton Racecourse - the girls are heading back to where it all started.

"We're away overseas so much these days we decided we wanted to celebrate the release of this album with everyone at home first," Brooke said.

The show in Grafton is the only show featuring the new album in Australia before The McClymonts head back to the USA for a 3-month summer tour.

"This is going to be so special for us - we're really excited and can't wait for everyone at home to hear the new songs first and tell us what they think," Mollie said.

"This show will be the biggest event we have ever put together for ourselves and to be doing it at home is awesome."

It's a special day for The McClymonts, and they've decided to share the love by showcasing some of Grafton's young musical talent.

"We remember when we were first starting off and Mum used to drive us around the entire east coast to perform at talent quests for years," Sam said.

"So we are going to ask all the high schools in Grafton to nominate their star performers to share the stage with us. We feel really good about keeping this show all about Grafton and hopefully help push some other dreams a little further along the track."

Tickets are available from Saraton Theatre and Grafton District Services Club. For more info check out www.themcclymonts.net.
