Gyroscope May News

Welcome to the Gyroscope May News.

Well, things have certainly been stepped up a notch in Gyroscope land during the past month. We here at Gyroscope HQ are super excited by everything that has gone down and is set to go down. All things Gyroscope are now moving forward at a thrilling pace. So here goes...

Gyroscope's fourth album Cohesion has now finally been released far and wide. To celebrate it's release (you might have got wind) the band will be hitting the road on their huge Cohesion Tour. Taking in some very beautiful venues this June, Gyroscope will be taking along Melbourne upstarts The Vasco Era in addition to Sydney stalwarts After the Fall. In a special treat for home-state audiences, local heroes Break Even will take over support duties for WA. The band are ready to bring their famous killer live show to audiences from Bunbury to Canberra. We hear they will be pulling out tracks from Cohesion for the first time alongside well-worn crowd favourites. Tickets are on sale now! All dates are below for your excitement, and tickets can be scooped up via Ticketek: - 132 849.

Now that Cohesion is stocked up in stores all over the country we trust that you are enjoying it as much as we are! The great news is that Cohesion debuted at a huge #3 on the ARIA charts! It's second week out it held fast at a fairly awesome #10.

April 9th also saw the band play a special acoustic in-store at 78 Record's in Perth. which everybody was very happy with. We have been sent some great photos by fans, and it seems like a good time was had by all. Fasterlouder were kind enough to send along a snapper to capture all the action for those who couldn't be there. All the photos can be found here.

Not only can you now score Cohesion on CD or via iTunes, you can have it in vinyl format - and trust us, it looks beautiful! If you don't believe us, check it out

Vinyl not your thing? Perhaps television is...Gyroscope will be appearing on this weeks' episode of the newly returned Hey Hey It's Saturday! The band will be joining the show to play the first single from Cohesion Some of the Places I Know. Keep your eyes on the Hey Hey website later on this week as the band will also be playing a second track just for the live audience. Hey Hey It's Saturday goes live to air this Wednesday at 7.30pm on Channel 9.

Way back in March, as we are sure you all know Gyroscope rocked Alice Springs on the very massive Triple J One Night Stand. Check out this backstage video of the guys that we dug up on the Triple J website over here.

It was announced a couple of weeks back that the second single to be lifted from Cohesion will be Baby, I'm Gettin' Better The lifting rock track should be hitting your radios real soon, so keep your ears out for it. Even better, filming of the video has wrapped up and we should have it ready for you in the next week or two. If you have yet to feast your eyes upon the stunning video for Some of the Places I Know - have a look at the Gyroscope Youtube!

For now, if you're really diggin' the sounds of Some of the Places I Know, then vote for it on the Hot 30! Here is a whole swag of links to vote for it wherever you might be in Australia.

We'll be keeping the exciting news coming your way in the next issue of the Gyroscope news, so stay tuned for more.
