Set Sail Announce EP & Tour

22 May 2012 | 4:49 pm | Staff Writer

Time to Set Sail across the country with their new EP.

Indie-pop outfit Set Sail have announced a national tour to coincide with the release of their new EP Hey. The six track offering is a collection of quirky and heartfelt songs to give fans just enough to be satisfied since their 2011 release The Riley Moore.

It's been less than smooth sailing for the band this year, with lead singer Brandon Hoogenboom being deported by Australian authorities for breaching his visa conditions. Thankfully for Brendon, the band and their fans, he was allowed back in the country (with a bit of help from some 8,500 defiant Facebook petitioners) to continue to make music.

Hey will be released Friday 15 June.
