We may even have some "Pre-Release" albums in our hot little hooves before the end of this month, so keep your eyes peeled to our facebook page, head on out to 1 of our live shows and stay tuned for how you can get a copy before our official release date of January 8th, 2016!!!
Today is the official release of our new single. It's our own fast and furious version of the old time hunting tune, ‘Rabbit in a Log’ from our upcoming album ‘Down Foggy Mountain’.
Available on itunes today, it's a great way to hear what we've been working on with iconic producer Nash Chambers, (Jimmy Barnes, Kasey Chambers, Archie Roach, Paul Kelly), at his Foggy Mountain Studios in the NSW Hunter Valley.
The album is now set for release in January 2016, so jump on this "Rabbit" and be first to ride our new single home!!! Thanks for all your support!
Stay tuned to our Facebook page for exciting tour updates as we head on into Bowen for the Fishing classic this weekend, Winton through the week for the Outback Festival and then into Mackay for Bikes, Bulls, Buggies and Bands...
Here are our show dates for September :) We're still working hard on the album artwork and final stages of the new record & it's looking like we'll be set to release late October. Keep your eyes & ears peeled for a pre-release "single" in the upcoming weeks!!!
Over 4 days in the freezing Hunter Valley @ the Foggy Mountain Studio, we just laid down 12 tracks for our latest record! A mixture of bluesy, rootsy mountain tunes recorded and produced by the legendary Nash Chambers with special guests Jeb Cardwell on banjo and dobro, and Bill Chambers on acoustic, 12 string and other quirky instruments found hanging on the walls in the studio.
We're now back home in the hills of North Qld and are spending the next month working on the release of this album as well as planning some more tours around the nation. We can't wait to hear the finished product!!! All tracks were recorded "live" in the studio to capture the vibe we create together, and we sure did have a whole lot of fun! Especially Goat Boy with his "one take wonder"... What a magic team we had at Foggy Mountain... words can't express the magic, so here's to listening to it all once it's released!!! Yeeeeeeeeeeha!

Goats are heading back to the hills of Far North Qld after basing ourselves in the South East of sunny Qld for the last 5 months! We've managed to avoid the rain & cyclone season, played in a whole lot of towns that we'd never frequented before, performed at quite a few festivals, and we just took out Best Music Act in FNQ for the 3rd year running :) All in all the Year of the Goat's kicked off to a running start!!! Here are our April shows down south before we head home...
Thanks to everyone down south for your support and y'all nationwide for your votes in the Hit Awards... we'll be working on recording another album over the next few months before kicking off a whole lot more festival tours... stay tuned for more Goat News ...
