Lyrically driven by the same muse that nearly killed Ulysses, the Re-Mains fearless country rock and roll crusade is a banjo-edged blur of boot-stompin' grandeur and epic adventure. With the blessing of Barry Tashian, of the original Boston Remains that toured with the Beatles, the Australian Re-Mains have endured countless line-up changes and become Australia's hardest working country rock and rollers, touring relentlessly for the last seven years.

From major festivals (Splendor in the Grass, East Coast Blues and Roots, Tamworth Country Music etc.) to every outback roadhouse and inner city dive, The Re-Mains have made their mark. 3 albums and 2 EPs in, 4 stars from Rolling Stone and a 'best country rock band in Australia' tag from the Melbourne Age under their belts, last year the Re-Mains took the show to Canada. In 4 months they played 64 shows from Vancouver to Toronto and back again, taking in NXNE and playing to 15,000 at the Big Valley Jamboree on the way.

They've been shot at, hunted by crocs in the Northern Territory, maimed by a rogue steer outside Tennant Creek, lost on the prairie in Manitoba, and found again in Nimbin. With new album 'Inland Sea' now released, they return to Canada for another marathon. Watch for them on tour from June to August with Dr Joey Only, The Secretaries, Mayor Matt Allen and whatever bears they pick up along the way.
