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’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.
