Bernard Fanning will be giving 200 fans an exclusive glimpse into “Civil Dusk”, his breathtaking third solo album.
August 2nd, three days before the album’s official release, Bernard and his band will take over the stunning Giant Dwarf Theatre in Sydney, to play “Civil Dusk” in it’s entirety. Giving fans a one-off opportunity to hear the new music in a intimate setting, showcasing the warmth, earthiness and complexed simplicity of Bernard‘s new material.
As an artist in continuous motion, Bernard Fanning has accumulated one of the most celebrated and distinct songbooks on the Australian rock spectrum; charting a course from creation to an interactive live experience like no other. With his solo career now spanning 10-plus years, Fanning has firmly cemented his position as one of Australia’s finest songwriters and lyricists. From the country folk-tinged charm of his multi-platinum debut solo album “Tea and Sympathy” (#1 ARIA Debut) to the rock grooves and horn breaks of its follow up “Departures” (#1 ARIA Debut).
Join Bernard and his band and discover, “Civil Dusk” – a collection of songs by an artist who is not satisfied with settling, but rather using his life’s own rear-view mirror to question his choices and to deal with the consequences. Whatever they may be.
“Civil Dusk” is part one of a series of two albums. The second instalment “Brutal Dawn” will follow in early 2017.
