The Grates touring Australia this December

2005 saw The Grates go from recording demos in John's dad's shed to recording their debut album with their favourite producer, Brian Deck, in Chicago. 2005 saw The Grates go from touring in the back of John's mum's car to touring the USA with The Go! Team. 2005 also saw The Grates get a last minute invite to SXSW and pull off a performance that prompted Interscope's Martin Kierszenbaum to join Dew Process in releasing their debut album.


To celebrate this year, The Grates are playing a few intimate shows just in time for Christmas at their favourite venues around the country. Up-and-comers Expatriate will be joining them for the party.


It will be the last time Australia will get to see The Grates on a small stage before they hit the summer festival circuit, taking in Meredith, Falls Festival, Southbound, and the Big Day Out tour.
