The tour comes in support of their 4th album and the 2nd for ABC Music The Sisypheans.
“Once again, Xylouris White create a new musical world” – PBS-FM feature album
“In revisiting the traditional directly, and investing it with such a disciplined application of freedom, Xylouris White’s The Sisypheans is their most compelling record to date.” – AllMusic
The dynamic duo will tackle Perth, Sydney, Castlemaine and will also feature at this years Brunswick Music Festival. Bandidas, a brand new trio featuring George’s daughter Apollonia, will also appear in Melbourne as support.
“What we’re doing drives us, takes us, to what we’re looking for,” explains Xylouris. “You find things. You learn things. And that’s the treasure.”
