The Band Of Frequencies have been making waves in America and are back in Australia to launch their EP All I’ve Found, playing Currumbin SoundLounge tonight.

Also playing tonight will be Kooli and Step It Up.

Band Of Frequencies recently joined the non-profit organisation Surfers for Cetaceans in USA on an ocean awareness campaign called Transparentsea Voyage travelling from Santa Barbara to San Diego in ocean kayaks to raise awareness about dozens of local coastal environmental issues on the Californian Coast. The Voyage and music was a huge success. Band Of Frequencies were the backbone of a new concept in music publishing by creating the song a day idea and releasing 23 new songs in 23 days with dozens of music collaborations with such artists as Angus Stone, Will Conner and Catherine Clark. Those songs were recorded each night and inspired by the environmental issues of the local area they were in, or the events surrounding that day at sea. Those songs and the album can be heard at: http://transparentseavoyage.bandcamp.com.

After a brief visit to New York City to meet up with co-producers and musicians as well as take part in and see firsthand the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) protests the bands final stop was Hawaii. Performing several surfing-related events as part of the International World Tour of surfing that meets at the famous Hawaiian Islands every December.

Surfing and the Band Of Frequencies is a familiar connection. They have recorded music for several surfing films and had their work published by American label Ubiquity Records for their contribution to the award- winning film Under The Sun (Cyrus Sutton) and most recently the title track to the award-winning documentary Minds In The Water (Justin Krumb). Their roots in surfing have also recently extended way back to the 1960s and a film clip made by world-renowned cameraman George Greenough (worked with Pink Floyd in the 1970s) for the title track to their new EP All I’ve Found which is being released in November by Vitamin Records.

Band Of Frequencies return to Australia with wind in their sails for a summer that sees them launch the EP from their anticipated second album with tonight’s local show at the Soundlounge Currumbin with support acts Kooii (Reggae) and Step It Up (Funk) before four shows at The Woodford Fold Festival, with former Wolfmother drummer Dave Atkins. The Band Of Frequencies then have a much needed month off before touring again in Australia in Febuary/March, including the Bleach Surfing Festival at Currumbin.
