The Gutter Twins

This July Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan, two fiercely individual and personal songwriters who have collaborated, toured and recorded together for years under many guises, are coming to Australia together for the first time as the Gutter Twins.

And the rumours are true, before heading north to SPLENDOUR IN THE GRASS, they will also play two very special side shows at the York Theatre in Sydney on Thursday 23rd and Athenaeum Theatre in Melbourne on Friday 24th.

These unmistakably iconic frontmen have experienced true indie hero worship before having spent the best part of twenty years between
them as members and collaborators of Screaming Trees, Afghan Whigs, The Twilight Singers and QOTSA before savouring the success of their latest project the GUTTER TWINS.

Released last year, Saturnalia is their long-in-the-works debut that Dulli has dubbed "the Satanic Everly Brothers." Pointedly the album
doesn’t rest on the sonic laurels of Lanegan and Dulli’s previous accomplishments and from its inception it was intended as a leap into the unknown. “When we actually decided to make a record, we agreed that it should be different from anything we’ve done before” Lanegan
explains. “If something sounded like anything we’d ever done, it was rejected,” Dulli continues. “That forced us into making a new sound.”
On stage, the GUTTER TWINS’ mutual chemistry is cemented by their intimately raw, haunting and confessional performances. With
transcendent voices, Lanegan sings like he's rising from the dead, Dulli like he's falling from grace. With talent as deep and far-reaching as Dulli and Lanegan, their live shows are equally electric when in full band mode or stripped down. If overseas tour dates are anything to go by, fans could expect a diverse set list of crowd pleasers with songs spanning the musical careers of the Gutter Twins, Twilight Singers, Mark Lanegan’s solo offerings, as well as unreleased material and covers.

Don’t miss Greg Dulli and Mark Lanegan, two incredible songsmiths coming together to perform their songs of sin, redemption, damnation and salvation this July. Bob Dylan once said that a good song is still good played just on an acoustic guitar – in the case of the GUTTER TWINS, we couldn’t agree more. Tickets to these two shows are limited and go on sale 9.00am Thursday 28th May.
