The Living End August News - tour in two weeks!

Welcome to the August news TLE-fiends! 

What a behemoth month July was, and things keep on coming.  We don't know how we will fit all of the incredible things The Living End has been doing into one email, but here we go for August...

Yes, the long awaited and greatly anticipated new album The Ending is Just the Beginning Repeating hit stores last month in a big way, making a splash on the ARIA charts, landing at #3 on its debut. The record was behind only Adele and Lady Gaga on the charts, so we think it is a stellar effort from the lads. If you've not wrapped your ears around this stunning sixth album...what are you waiting for? It is at iTunes here, available on CD here, and even on wax here. Oh, and don't you North Americans forget that both The Ending is Just the Beginning Repeating AND White Noise are now available on iTunes in the US, Canada and Mexico. You can thank us next month once the new record has had some time to sink in.

Onwards and upwards with album-related news, and most excitingly, the album tour for The Ending is Just the Beginning Repeating is just two weeks away! Some shows have now SOLD OUT with second and final dates on sale now in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne. Don't forget that the Sydney and Adelaide shows are licensed all ages so the little tacker TLE-fans can come along for a taste of songs both new and old. A very enticing prospect. Remember also that rockin' supports Hunting Grounds and King Cannons will be taking turns being main support on all shows, so arrive early to discover what the line up will look like! Check out all of the tour dates for TLE below and pick up your tickets quick smart as they're all going fast as the tour is just around the corner.

In other shows, The Living End wowed a wild and very big crowd at Splendour in the Grass late last month. Their Saturday night set was epic, and triple j caught all of the action live on air so keep your ears out for a very cool Live at the Wireless in the not too distant future. Check out some TLE Splendour photos from the Fasterlouder backstage studio shoot
here.Last weekend had the guys visited Cairns for the annual TimeOUT Festival, another excellent show by all reports. You can suss some photos from that right one right here.

Now, we've noticed a distinct lack of video news in this news update, so we'll lay some on you now. Last Friday The Living End played some special tunes for Triple M Melbourne as a part of Friday Live at the Precinct Hotel in Richmond. Only 100 lucky fans won tickets to the live broadcast, but YOU can watch brand new single Song for the Lonely LIVE right here. If you need another hit of the killer cut that is Song for the Lonely, make sure you watch the official video clip for the song here. Song for the Lonely is available at iTunes now (click here) and with it you get the exclusive b-side Gasoline. Great deal!

In other video new items; remember the competition Take40 ran with the album launch where fans won the chance to ask the band a question? Well, all the winning questions were asked and answered and you can watch the video interview with the guys right
here. Some odd but revealing stuff in there. And speaking of competitions, Fasterlouder are currently running a killer tour comp right now where you can win tickets, a meet and greet and some very cool merch swag, click here to enter.

To leave you with something nice this month; Chris Cheney recently hopped on board to help out with WSPA's Dollars for Collars campaign, alongside a whole swag of local celebrities. It is a great cause and if you are a lover of dogs (or any animal really) then we suggest you check it all out at
Well, this time next month The Ending is Just the Beginning Tour will be in full swing and we'll be reporting to you from the road. Plenty of other tour dates to check out also, they are all below. Exciting stuff, so keep listening in the meantime.
