Beaten Down But Better Than Ever

More Tim Barry More Tim Barry

"If this record is uplifting compared to my old ones it's because I feel stronger from all the beat-downs and shit I've taken in the past," so says Richmond, Virginia singer-songwriter Tim Barry about his new record 40 Miler. The record, which has just been released, is a little more positive than his previous work but it hasn't lost the grit and attitude that has made everything he's been involved with so awesome in the past.

After a couple of very successful recent jaunts to Australia, both by himself and as a part of the Revival Tour shows, Barry is wasting no time in getting back down under in support of the record, once again playing intimate venues that promise to ensure some pretty magical experiences when he gives us tunes from the aforementioned latest record as well as songs from throughout his solo career and from when he was out the front of punk rock masters Avail.

Catch him at the following shows:

Friday 3 August – Sun Distortion, Brisbane (all ages)
Saturday 4 August – Sandringham, Sydney
Sunday 5 August – The Side Bar – Cambridge Hotel, Newcastle
Wednesday 8 August – The Den, Perth 
Thursday 9 August – Grace Emily, Adelaide
Friday 10 August – Gasometer, Melbourne
