Australian pop rock band Thirsty Merc will bring renowned hits such as 20 Good Reasons and In the Summertime to the York on Lilydale this spring.

The band will celebrate its first-ever live album release, Thirsty Merc Live!, with a string of Australian shows.

The album’s release on 4 October will be immediately followed by the first show for the tour on 5 October.

The band will then travel through Victoria and NSW before hitting Mount Evelyn in mid-October.

Thirsty Merc singer Rai Thistlewayte said the new album is a great reflection of the band’s live shows.

“We reckon this album uncompromisingly showcases the rawness of our live gigs, with a sonic presentation that easily stands up to any of our studio releases,” he said.

“Needless to say, we’re pumped to be hitting the road again in October!”

Since first forming 17 years ago, Thirsty Merc has released four critically acclaimed albums, had over 250,000 album sales, been a finalist in the APRA song of the year and had five ARIA Award nominations.

The band will be playing at the York on Lilydale, Mount Evelyn on 18 October. For more information visit thirstymerc.com/page/tour.
