BALL PARK MUSIC NEW VIDEO + BOY & BEAR TOUR SUPPORT

By November 2, 2011

It’s been a non-stop tour regime for Ball Park Music since they dropped their debut album Happiness and Surrounding Suburbs. Having only just wrapped up their own headline tour, which saw shows selling out in Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne, the six-piece Brisbane pop makers begin an epic 20-date tour with Boy & Bear on The Moonfire Tour tonight.

There’s currently no stopping Ball Park Music – with an ARIA Top 40 album now under their belt, their fearless live show is being declared as one of the best in the country by many with frontman Sam Cromack leading the charge while being touted somewhat as a 2011 answer to Jarvis Cocker.

The album itself features five triple j high rotation singles in iFly, Sad Rude Future Dude, Rich People Are Stupid, It’s Nice To Be Alive and most recently All I Want Is You amongst the 11 songs in which everyone has a favourite.

To coincide with Ball Park Music’s next phase of touring, the group have shot a music video for their latest single All I Want Is You, a definite favourite amongst fans, radio and critics alike.

ALBUM REVIEWS:

“… closer examination reveals more depth to BPM than just a fun-filled one night stand.” – Noel Mengel, The Courier Mail

“Ball Park Music has delivered in spades with their debut album, swaggering between the quirky and quietly reflective, it delivers the radio hits and offers plenty of moments where you want to – and can – dig deeper.” –  Ross Pattison, The [AU] Review

“I cannot stop smiling while listening to this album. I hope Ball Park Music do keep jumping up and down, forever.” – JODY MACGREGOR, Rave Magazine (**** ½ Album of the Week)

“Each song seems to be infused with the band’s own quirky character and irrepressible spirit, to produce a varied yet compelling album.” – Faster Louder

“Ball Park Music ringleader Sam Cromack has more talent oozing out of his pores than anyone currently residing in the Top 40 … An incredibly persuasive argument for the continued power of the LP format” – Rohan Williams, Junior Magazine

LIVE REVEIWS:

“It is impossible to pick highlights from their set: there was not a dull moment and every song had people singing and dancing along.” – Chantelle Sievers, Life Music Media

“The party never seemed to end with them and once you’ve witnessed their performance, you’ll f**king love Ball Park Music too.” – Noomie Tiwutanond,  AAA Backstage

“When frontman Sam Cromack gives everyone a hearty, swearword-peppered welcome, the ensuing roar is deafening; there is a lot of love in the room …the combination of musical talent, Day-Glo radiance and boundless energy make them Brisbane’s current ‘it’ band. Watch this space for even more exciting things.” – Denis Semchenko, Bigsound Live Review
