Road trip ahead for Stereo Addicts

WE LOVE to hear stories of locals doing awesome stuff elsewhere. Sharing the Coffs Coast love is new indie band Stereo Addicts.

The local lads are set to headline at Sydney's famed Metro Theatre on August 9, and the Hi-Fi in Brisbane on August 23, - both sweaty rock venues with long histories of big tunes.

This gig comes after a warm-up at the Plantation Hotel supporting Triple J Unearthed Winners Hunting Grounds on August 8.

Stereo Addicts is made up of names you'll definitely know, with singer and guitarist Benny Francis, drummer Alexie Pigot and bassist Mitch Hart saying they're ready to deliver an awesome live show to their fans in Sydney, Brisbane and on the Coast.

"We know of heaps of local fans who are already buying their tickets and planning to make the trip down to Sydney," the band said.

Currently recording their debut EP, their sound stems from long hours on the road listening to Birds of Tokyo, Calling All Cars and Children Collide.

Supporting them at their Sydney gig is local rock chick Sunday, who's gaining a name for her edgy live performances.

In support at The Hi-Fi are The Moniters, with more acts to be announced soon.
