With legendary muso Warren Ellis announcing on stage at Sugar Mountain last month that Dirty Three would be putting the band "to bed for a while after tonight", during a recent interview with The Music, the band's Jim White confirmed the Melbourne band's time off wouldn't be that long after all.

"We’re playing in Finland in June or July, and have a couple of shows coming up mid-year," White confirmed of their gig plans.

He confirmed the band's desire to work on some new music around then too, but seemed unsure about the logistics of it all.

"We’d love to get together, around then, to work on new music, but it’ll all just be a matter of if we have the time. Beyond that, I really don’t know. That’s about it. I can’t really say anymore."
