Matt Corby announced a national tour to support his new “bundle” Resolution this afternoon and the blogs went wild. This tour, taking place throughout October, will see Corby play some of the biggest headline venues of his career including Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion and Melbourne’s Festival Hall as well as his first headline shows ever in Canberra and Tasmania.

But that’s not why we’re excited. Like the folk nerds we are we’re super psyched because Matt Corby has announced London’s Bear’s Den as the support act. As constant readers would know we’ve been fans of Bear’s Den since their first incarnation as Cherbourg (which shared at least half of the current Bear’s Den members), through Andrew Davie’s brief solo career and into their current success with the EP Agape. These guys are going places, not least of all because of their connections with Mumford and Sons (they’ve just been touring as supports for the band in the UK) and Communion (bass player Kev Jones is one of the label’s founders), but also because their music is just damn good.

The full list of Matt Corby’s tour dates with Bear’s Den are below. The shows go on sale on Thursday 8th August:

Wednesday 9th October – Wollongong University, Wollongong, NSW
Thursday 10th October – ANU Bar, Canberra, ACT
Friday 11th October – Hordern Pavilion, Sydney, NSW
Tuesday 15th October – Convention Centre, Brisbane, QLD
Thursday 17th October – City Hall, Hobart, TAS
Friday 18th October – Festival Hall, Melbourne, VIC
Wednesday 23rd October – GPAC Playhouse, Geelong, VIC
Thursday 24th October – Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide, SA
Sunday 27th October – Arts centre, Fremantle, WA
