The Hillbilly Killers Lead 2nd Gum Ball Announcement

Aussie supergroup The Hillbilly Killers have been added to the Gum Ball Festival bill for 2013.

The second round of lineup announcements has been released, with stoner rock faves Tumbleweed, current BDO tourists The Medics and Melbourne outfit Money For Rope also on the list. They join the likes of Turin Brakes, Mia Dyson and The Beards at the boutique event.

We recently gave you guys an exclusive listen to the first track by The Hillbilly Killers, which consists of Tim Rogers, Catherine Britt and Bill Chambers.

Tumbleweed have been around since the grunge years of the nineties, famously supporting Nirvana on their 1992 tour of Oz. They've continued to record and tour consistently, even headling the recent CherryFest in Melbourne.

The Medics are on BDO duties at the moment, capping off a big twelve months for the group. They released their debut album Foundations back in May, which peaked on the ARIA chart at #29.

The three day music and arts event will take place at Belford in the Hunter Valley NSW, from Thursday 25 to Saturday 27 April. Tickets are still available through the Gum Ball website.
