It’s felt like an age since The Middle East started talking about their debut album, but finally a relese date of 8 April has been set. I Want That You Are Always Happy will be their first release since 2008 and tracks like Jesus Came To My Birthday Party are already all over Triple J.
They’ve also annouced an Australian tour, which includes a Melbourne show on my birthday so you all should come.
