      Barrel House Announce Brand New Single No Hope & Accompanying National Tour

      Many young bands claim the ‘road warriors’ title but very few can hold such a claim up to the light the way Port Macquarie based blues / rock / roots 3 piece Barrel House can. Including support slots for the likes of Ani DiFranco, Blue King Brown, Jeff Lang, Mama Kin and Ash Grunwald, from east coast to west coast the last two years alone has seen the band play over 200 shows.

      The Barrel House story begins in late 2008. The band sent a self confessed “crappy demo” into triple J. Roots n All started spinning it and within weeks the band was handpicked by the station as their ‘unearthed’ act to open the main stage of Coffs Harbour’s Open Arms Festival ( w’Grinspoon, Gyroscope, Mammal, TZU and many more).

      Strong Triple J airplay around the unearthed win sent them to the top of the Triple J Unearthed ‘roots’ charts which, combined with a swift rising reputation on the North Coast live scene, led straight into a slots at Festival Of The Sun (Port Macquarie) and the East Coast Blues n Roots festival (Byron Bay). The ever increasing attention also saw the band sign with management company ‘Cross Section’, run by co directors Scott Mesiti (Festival Of The Sun) and Ted Gardiner (manager of ‘The Brian Jonestown Massacre’).

      Just surfaced from Recording Oasis Studio's on the Gold Coast, the band are now proud to present No Hope, the first single to be lifted from their forthcoming debut album “Species Vagabond”, which is due for release early 2011.

      Says front-man Dwayne Cameron:

      “Species Vagabond covers all of the usual topics; lost love, lust, hopelessness, travelling, sticking it to the man and not having enough money. ‘No Hope’ was actually the last song we wrote for the album and didn’t really finish it till we got to the studio. It’s about being in the music industry and the feeling of hopelessness you get when you think of how long and hard you have worked towards your goal, how many sacrifices you have made, and yet in the eyes of a lot of people you are still considered a bum for not having a “real Job”

      The truth is though, it's these people's comments that drive us harder. We actually have the best job in the world, travelling, festivals, meeting different people and not having any dreams in life because we're living them."
