For the third year in a row, Bluejuice are packing the tiniest shorts they can find, dusting off their surfmats, reacquainting their shoulder hair with natural sunlight, and heading for the coast. Having just released their third and favourite album, Company, and having abused the airwaves for months with their devotional ode Act Yr Age, the band are preparing the tour van with ripening nectarines and peaches and are ready to roll with their first tour in ages.

Sizzling 2012 will see Bluejuice and their house music pals The Aston Shuffle bring an unparalleled level of summer fruitiness and crotch sweating to the otherwise-respectable coastal towns of Australia. It’s going to be sticky.

For the urban, metropolitan, city dwelling fans of Bluejuice the band has just been announced as a national artist on the Big Day Out 2012.

Catch these crazy jive turkeys at the Coolangatta Hotel Sunday and at the Hotel Great Northern on Tuesday. Tickets available from www.oztix.com.au  and 1300 762 545 and the venue.
