Melbourne’s Dallas Crane have reformed, reactivated and are recording.

The band has confirmed they are back working together and a fifth album is on the way. As an olive-branch to fans they will start streaming one brand new song ‘I’m Sorry Darling’ at their office website from midday Friday, October 11 (east coast daylight savings time).

Dallas Crane will reactivate as a live band on New Year’s Eve at Melbourne’s Esplanade Hotel.

Dave Larkin formed Dallas Crane in 1996. The band’s third album ‘Dallas Crane’ earned them three ARIA nominations in 2004. The album featured the Top 40 hit ‘Dirty Hearts’.

Dallas Crane showcased internationally in 2007 including a performance at the Aussie BBQ at SXSW in Austin, Texas that year with Hoodoo Gurus, You Am I and Beasts of Bourbon. While in the USA they also performed at the iconic venues The Troubadour in Los Angeles and The Bowery Ballroom in New York.

Dallas Crane’s last major lap of Australia was with The Who in 2009.

During the hiatus, Larkin recorded two albums with Gun Street Girls and Satchell worked under the name Pete Sounds.

The 2013 Dallas Crane line-up is Dave Larkin on vocals and guitar, Pete Satchwell on guitar and vocals, Chris Brodie on bass and new drummer Steve Pinkerton, who replaces original member Shannon Vanderwert.
