Performing with a full band, Callinan – an occasional member of Jack Ladder and Lost Animal – will play shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in June.

– Globe-trotting Bad Seeds founder Hugo Race will release a new solo album in June ahead of a seven-date east-coast tour. No But It’s True – billed as his “debut” as a solo artist – is the follow-up to last year’s Fatalists, which we described as “an impulsive and introspective dispatch”. It’s reflective of his “love of primitive folk and blues songs from decades past”. Supports from Melbourne outfit Leek & The War Wick Tragedy, who are the first band to sign to Race’s new record label, Rough Velvet Records.
