The Third Estate is a five piece alternative rock group hailing from Albury NSW. They have played many tour supports for bands such as Mammal, Faker, Kisschasy, Trial Kennedy, Horsell Common, Grinspoon and many more. They have also played many high profile festivals such as “Groovin the Moo”, “The Boomtown Showdown”, “The Push-Over Festival”, “The Planet X Winter Games” & “Peaches N Cream”. More recently the guys have topped the Triple J Unearthed Overall Charts with their first single “far from the valiant tourist” which remained at number 1 overall for 4 weeks. This resulted in the production of the bands 1st music video, and the “far from the valiant tourist” clip can be seen on myspace & youtube.
According to Guitarist Josh Liston “Far From the Valiant Tourist” can be described as “an intensely catchy alt rock song, with some cool progressive arrangements, strong melodies and a unique composition; and it is indicative of our new musical direction”…
This year THE THIRD ESTATE are working tirelessly toward releasing their new four part concept album titled “The Chronicles of the Four Horsemen” which has been made possible after being signed to an international independent label BLUEPIE PRODUCTIONS. The release consists of four chapters Conquest, War, Pestilence & Famine, and Death. Each disc will consist of four songs and a music video and will be distributed to stores throughout Australia, USA and the UK.
“We’re all very excited to be able to finally unveil our new brand of rock music to the world, we feel we have evolved greatly over the last 12 months and we hope our fans and the greater public find the same power in our new music that we do” – vocalist/guitarist Rudy Gerard.
The band will be touring nationally throughout 09 to promote all four releases, so be sure to keep a lookout at a venue near you for tour dates.
