THEY mingled with the crowd, drank beers with fans and wanted to party last time they were in town.
The four boys from Melbourne band, British India, must have had such a good time in Rocky a few years ago, they are back again for a special one-off gig to showcase new material from the band's up-and-coming third album.
The Melbourne friends have been holed up writing and recording songs in a studio, but when they dropped their new single, I Can Make You Love Me, it received an outstanding reaction, and hinted that another great Aussie album was on its way.
The band is negotiating with record labels and publishers in Sydney and Melbourne for the release of the album in August.
Rockhampton will be the band's first stop for the year, and will be privy to a host of new songs when they perform on Saturday, February 18, at O'Dowd's Irish Pub.
The band has played to sold-out shows and festivals across Australia and have produced two top 10 ARIA albums.
With its catchy tunes, the band is ranked the sixth highest played on ABC radio station Triple j and have scored three songs in the hottest 100 countdown.
The four boys were schoolmates who decided to form a band in 2004, and in 2007, the debut album Guillotine, with its punk and indie influences, helped stamp the band's sound.
The boys have a loyal following and try to connect with fans during and after shows as well as through online media.
They have been called one of the most solid young rock bands in the country and are expected to once again tour and perform sold-out shows across the country.
