The supergroup will visit Sydney and Melbourne this June.

Louisiana swamp, country, blues and rock'n'roll supergroup the Lil' Band Of Gold will be touring Australia this June, in support of their new album Lil' Band O' Gold Play Fats - where they play their favourite Fats Domino tracks.

Last in Australia in 2010 (when they visited twice), they'll have two nights in Sydney and three in Melbourne this time around. Featuring the likes of Warren Storm, Steve Riley, Dickie Landry, Lucky Oceans (from Western Australia), David Egan, CC Adcock, Philippe Billeaudeaux and more - it's a who's who of Louisiana swamp and country with saxophones, pedal steel, accordion, piano and whatever else they can through into the mix.

Just as impressive as their live show is their latest release, Play Fats - which features vocals from the likes of Robert Plant, Lucinda Williams and Australian vocalists Jimmy Barnes and Tim Rogers. Australia will be the first place the record is available (Friday 8 June through Dust Devil Music/EMI).
