With the arrival of our newest Lurker  – Griffin Cubby born May 2011 – we’ve been quiet for a few months.

But we’re coming out of hibernation, with a new album on the way, and a tour in July with Melbourne bands Ducks in the Mud and A Commoners Revolt.  The Eat The Rich tour will take us to the SOS conference in Albury, the Phoenix Bar in Canberra, followed by shows at Jura Books and Dirty Shirlows in Sydney.
