One of Australia’s most well respected and hardworking entities, British India are not unaccustomed to the draw of the darkness. Having toured relentlessly since inception in over ten years ago, the band have loaded in via the darkest alleyways of the country’s dingiest pubs. They’ve slaved through the night to produce some of the most well-recognised Aussie rock hooks of the past decade, and they’ve endured chilly winters in their home town of Melbourne where the sun sets before the working day is done. They are the embodiment of the spirit of Coopers Dark Ale. Truly substantial with a legitimate claim to being totally independent. So it is with great pleasure that these four Melbourne school friends join forces with Coopers to present theCoopers After Dark tour.
Coopers and Premium Beverages National Marketing Director, Cam Pearce, said “Australian pubs are the lifeblood of the live music scene and it’s great to be able to throw Dark Ale’s support behind British India and give their fans a chance to see them live in a series of exclusive gigs.”
Six shows across six capital cities will provide music and beer fans alike with the chance to see the band deliver the kind of smashing live set that can draw you out of hibernation on even the most wintery of weekends. The band – who have nailed three ARIA Top 10 debuts, multiple ARIA and J Award nominations, five entries into the triple J Hottest 100 and the AIR Award for Best New Band over the course of their career- will perform across some of Australia’s most beloved and intimate venues throughout winter, for an exclusive group of tasteful beer connoisseur and live music lovers.
To attend, Coopers fans need only purchase a six pack, carton or glass of the bold Dark Ale brew at their participating pub or bottle shop for the chance to instantly win four VIP tickets and take three friends along for a riotous night out. Alternatively, fans should raid the pages of their local street press and favourite live music websites to find alternate means to win their way in.
Finally, a reason to look forward to the winter…
