The Tea Party return toAustralia

The Tea Party will tour Australia in July, bringing their distinctive “Moroccan roll” sound Down Under for the first time since 2004.

The Canadian band has a long history with Australian fans; visiting us 12 times between 1994 and 2004 and had been scheduled to visit us again in 2005 but those dates were cancelled when the band split due to creative differences.

Lead singer Jeff Martin became an honorary Australian touring consistently as a solo performer and forming the groups Armada and 777. Bassist and keyboard player Stuart Chatwood kept busy composing video game soundtracks (including all eight titles in the The Prince of Persia series) while drummer Jeff Burrows has been playing with his band Crash Karma and working on radio.

Although the band could make a quick million dollars by selling their website domain name to Sarah Palin’s mates, the trio reformed in April last year and are planning to record a new album. As Jeff Martin states, “The seven years apart has done wonders for The Tea Party. With a renewed sense of purpose and vitality, the band is more powerful than ever with our collective eye firmly on the future.”

looks like they sacked the token bald guy and got in a hipster, i'm pretty sure they had a bald guy, every 1990's band did.

Nope - they can only fit one limping 90s rock act each year.
