Bonafide legends of the Australian music scene, Tex Perkins, Don Walker, and Charlie Owen are set to take back their collective crown once more with the announcement that their alt-country supergroup, Tex, Don, & Charlie returns with a brand new album You Don’t Know Lonely due Friday June 30th.
True masters of evocative, story-driven song writing, we last heard from the trio on 2005’s All Is Forgiven and their spectacular 1993 debut Sad But True, itself widely regarded as one of the great Australian albums.
You Don’t Know Lonely’s lead track, Tex’s A Man In Conflict With Nature, is darkly hilarious – sketching the kind of louche, uninhibited character your grandmother warned you against: the layabout who, after a winning tip at the dogs, celebrates with “three hookers and some sushi”.
The Hitcher is an older, wiser, more calibrated view of the world that’s on offer: “You don’t know lonely/Till you’ve looked back down the road/From one more town/Knowing she’s no longer there/And here’s as good as anywhere.”
The new album ushers in a long-awaited Tex, Don and Charlie national tour which will kick off at the end of August and run all through September. Covering a vast expanse, the tour takes in capital cities Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra, Adelaide, Brisbane, Perth and Darwin as well as regional towns Meeniyan, Bendigo, Newcastle, Bellingen, Bangalow, Cairns and Bunbury. Fans can expect the new songs in all their live glory, augmented by favourites from Sad But True and All Is Forgiven.
