Sneak Peek In To The Divinyls Tour Rehearsals

Ahead of their upcoming Australian tour, the rebooted Divinyls featuring founding member, guitarist and songwriter Mark McEntee has introduced the band’s cracking new vocalist Lauren Ruth Ward and all Australian rhythm section via a sneak peek performance clip taken at recent rehearsals in Perth, Western Australia.

The new combination featuring McEntee, Lauren Ruth Ward and Aussies J Cortez and Malcolm Clarke rip through a snippet of the classic Divinyls track Boys In Town breathing a new energy into the song, paying homage to the past but definitely dragging the material kicking and screaming into 2019.

“For true fans of Divinyls music, this is a chance to relive some of those great songs live again,” states McEntee. “It’s not about replacing anybody,” he continues, “this tour is about getting the chance to play and bloody celebrate these great songs again, live and loud, and hopefully people are interested in that.” On the addition of Lauren Ruth Ward McEntee adds, “I’d never seriously thought about getting Divinyls back on the road until I heard Lauren sing, there had been offers, but this girl is the real thing and I just had to jump on the opportunity.”

Lauren Ruth Ward is a force of nature. Having moved to Los Angeles in 2015, the Los Angeles-based artist quickly built a large and loyal local following with her 70s-tinged psych-blues swagger and voice of gold. As a young up and coming artist Lauren brings her own voice and message to Divinyls, while at the same time respecting the legacy and lyrics of the late great Chrissy Amphlett.

The reformed Divinyls hit the road in late February with only one thing to prove, how great these enduring anthems still are and how much they still mean to so many.
