Guantanamo Baywatch (USA)

Portlandian surf rockers Guantanamo Baywatch return to our shores this September and October with a new album in hand, an extra guitarist and an enormous sense of excitement for touring their second home once again.

Last year when Guantanamo Baywatch made their debut visit to Australia, they really solidified their reputation for loose and wild shows. Their renegade energy and “don’t give a shit” ‘tude left a trail of followers, broken hearts and a mountain of empty beer bottles in their wake. Their newfound love affair with Australia continues to flourish as they ready themselves to tour once again, their second time ‘round sees them play Sounds of The Suburbs, and Chopped Festival along with a run of club shows along Australia’s East Coast.

Since their last Australian tour, Guantanamo Baywatch have had a busy 12 months. They released their sophomore album, “Darling… It’s Too Late” to cult-rock accolades; Pitchfork noted “this is a record with teeth,” whilst the success of the album amongst fans had the band touring back and forth across America, including a co-headline jaunt with much loved Aussies, The Gooch Palms, before marking their debut tour of Europe.

With a knack for serving up legit surf, while fucking with various sub-genres, from dusty Western twangs, to the straight-outta-Sun Studios rockers, the trio of guitarist Jason Powell, bassist Chevelle Wiseman and the happiest drummer we’ve ever seen live, Chris Scott, will unleash their newly inducted second guitarist, Jordan Owens on their Australian fans to make this even more wild than you initially thought possible.

If you haven’t listened to the new album yet, check it out below, and take a deep breath because spring will soon be here, and so will they!
