The Drones > Autumn Tour 2009 > "Vocalist Gareth Liddiard is a songwriter of extraordinary power"... Time Out - 5/6 >  > "What 'Havilah' does is jump up and down on the rotting carcasses of The Vines and Jet stabbing them again and again with a flag that says ‘Miles. Better. Than. You. Ever. Were."... NME >  > "Speaker-bleeding blues"... Mojo 4/5 >  > "An awesome proposition. Dirty and primal, tight and need this band in your life."... Stool Pigeon 4/5 >  > The Drones return to the UK this Autumn for a ten dates following on from their recent sold out show at London’s Luminere and stint on the continent. These intense shows will be their attestation to their recent album Havilah, out now on ATP Records. >  >  ‘Havilah’ is brimful of the innovation and artistic integrity that has made The Drones one of Australian rock's most critically acclaimed acts. ‘Havilah,’ like everything The Drones have done, is an album of contradictions, where bombast meets beauty, melancholy wrestles with violent guitars and singer Liddiard's incendiary voice lights up his angular poetry, this time on the nature of, in no particular order, the moon (Penumbra), divorce (The Drifting Housewife) and the acquisition of godlike power and the cult of John Frum (I Am the Supercargo). >  > NOVEMBER:   >   Mon 2nd - Brighton, Prince Albert - £6.50 admission - Doors 7pm - >             Tue 3rd  - London, Cargo -  £8.50 admission - Doors 7pm - >     Wed 4th - Bristol, The Cooler - £7 admission - Doors 7.30pm - >     Fri 6th – Ireland, Cork, Cyprus Avenue - €12.50 admission - Doors 7pm - >             Sat 7th – Ireland, Galway, Roisin Dubh - free admission - Doors 7pm - >             Sun 8th - Ireland, Dublin, Whelans - €11.50 admission - Doors 7pm - >             Wed 11th - Birmingham, Hare & Hounds - £7 admission -  Doors 7pm - >             Thu 12th  - Manchester, Night & Day- £7 admission - Doors 7.30pm - >             Fri 13th - Glasgow, Nice n Sleazy- £7 admission -  Doors 7.30pm- >             Sat 14th - Edinburgh, Sneaky Pete's- £7 admission - Doors 7pm- >  > The Drones are: > Gareth Liddiard – Guitar/Vocals, Mike Noga – Drums/Percussion/Backing Vocals > Fiona Kitschin – Bass/Backing Vocals, Dan Luscombe -Guitar/Piano/Melodica/Backing Vocals >
