It seems that Ball Park Music might be performing a secret show at The Zoo this Thursday night in Brisbane.

The band's label, Prawn Records, are hosting their inaugural Prawn Cocktail event at the Fortitude Valley venue which is conveniently timed, given they just released their new album Weirder & Weirder.

Publicly confirmed to perform are The Pizzas who have been described as the world's cheesiest band with support by the amazing Asha Jefferies.

The label has teased a celebration of the release of the record, with the event bio on The Zoo's website stating, "Coincidentally and through pure serendipity with no strings attached, label mates (and our biggest fish at Prawn Records) Ball Park Music also have a brand new record Weirder & Weirder that dropped on May 27 so we'll be celebrating that in a huge way.

"We guarantee this will truly be a night to remember."

Asha Jefferies also posted, giving away an even bigger hint, stating, "Definitely NOT supporting @ballparkmusic this Thursday at @thezoo.bne for a secret celebration of their new album, no no no no no no no, why would you think that? (Buy tickets quick)."

Ball Park Music gave fans a special surprise when they brought forward the release of their new record. Originally slated to arrive on June 3, the band’s seventh studio album released via streaming services, CD and digital download on May 27, one week before its supporting tour kicks off.

The “unforeseen glitch” emerged due to ongoing supply issues relating to the war in Ukraine, with quality vinyl pressings often coming from Europe.

“We spent more than a year pouring our heart and soul into this record and we are beyond excited for everyone to hear it,” frontman Sam Cromack said.

“After more than two years of our industry suffering non-stop setbacks, we’ve decided to give this situation the middle finger and run in the other direction. To honour all our beautiful listeners, we have made the decision to pull the release of Weirder & Weirder forward. 

“Our highest priority is getting this new record to our fans and hitting the road in June to celebrate the only thing that has ever mattered - the music.”
