The Wolfe Brothers announce their Country Heart National Tour

Celebrating their fourth studio album Country Heart


With their fourth studio album debuting on the ARIA Charts at #9, The Wolfe Brothers are having a huge year! Now, celebrating the release of Country Heart, the country rockers are heading out on the road for an aptly named Country Heart Australian Tour 2018. Already 2018 has involved a smashing show at Tamworth Country Music Festival and returning to the road with mate Lee Kernaghan on his 25th Anniversary Tour Boys From The Bush. The first show announced for the tour, the official album launch at the band’s hometown venue The Longley has already sold-out. Audiences are certainly in for a treat with this run of tour dates.

Country Heart’s debut at #9 is the band’s highest ARIA chart entry position to date beating their last album, This Crazy Life, which came in at #10 on release in June 2016. This is a great effort when you consider Ed Sheehan held three of the eight spots before them.

For the band, the charting position is all due to their fans. “We are all stoked and really proud of this ARIA Top 10 debut,” says lead singer Nick Wolfe. “We have our fans to thank for going out and buying the album and giving us our highest ARIA all genre chart position to date.”

All four of The Wolfe Brothers albums have entered the ARIA chart in the Top 20. The last two albums, Nothin’ But Trouble and This Crazy Life, and this new release Country Heart, have all debuted on the ARIA Country Chart at #2. The band penned the album on a songwriting trip to Nashville last year where they collaborated with a number of different writers, with the objective to create a different sound and deliver songs that would hopefully take the band to the next level.

After three highly successful albums, the band felt ready to take a big step with number four. “We really wanted to do something different, something that would reach a wider audience and something to show that we have grown and matured as a band and as songwriters,” says bassist Tom Wolfe. “We are very proud of this album and we feel that we achieved what we set out to do and to see it debut at #9 is very satisfying and a great start to the next chapter for the band.”

The Wolfe Brothers enlisted award-winning producer Matt Fell to produce their fourth studio album in his Sydney studio. “Matt was amazing to work with,” says lead guitarist Brodie Rainbird. “He is also a great musician and he really understood our need to do something different with this album. In the past we have always been a guitar driven band. This time we never picked up a guitar until we were two weeks into the recording. We took the time to work on the parts of every song. It is not a massive departure from the past Wolfe Brothers records, it is just different, and the response from those who have heard the album has been incredibly encouraging for us.”
