New Hoodoo Gurus Single & Tour

Since forming in 1981, Hoodoo Gurus boast 9 ARIA Top 20 albums, 9 ARIA Top 40 singles and a host of multi-platinum albums – they’re mainstays on the live scene, and influential to a new generation of artists that have arrived after them.

Never a band to rest on their laurels, Hoodoo Gurus have today released a new single, ‘Answered Prayers’, written by the band’s lead singer, Dave Faulkner, and mixed by their longtime producer/mixer, Ed Stasium(Ramones, Talking Heads).

Faulkner said, “’Answered Prayers’ came together very quickly, both in the writing and the recording. In September, I came up with the main riff when I was driving home from rehearsal. I started putting together the arrangement at our next rehearsal and when I listened back to it the following morning, the complete lyrics came tumbling out very quickly. It was quite a strange experience because, as a songwriter, I was almost a spectator in that process. I didn’t change a single word afterwards. That was also what led to the song having several spoken word sections – the lyrics demanded to be heard that way. As a result, ‘Answered Prayers’ has quite an unorthodox song structure”

Hoodoo Gurus are confirmed to appear at Driftwood Winery Estate in WA’s Margaret River on 29 December, Cold Chisel’s Blood Moon Tour at Sydney’s Bankwest Stadium on 24 January and three Queensland shows in January and details are below.

Answered Prayers is released today on the band’s own label through Universal Music.
