Melbourne 90s guitar pop band The Earthmen have recorded four new songs for an upcoming compilation.
The retrospective ‘College Heart’ will be released by Popboomerang. Work on the collection began in 2014 and prompted The Earthmen to reform in the studio and record four new songs. The four new songs ‘Find Your Own Way’, ‘Personal History’, ‘Blue Sky’ and ‘The Reprise’ can be heard at https://theearthmen.bandcamp.com.

The Earthmen did their time in the 90s but by 1999 it was all over.
The one main album was ‘Love Walks In’ through Warner Music in 1997. The closest they came to a hit was ‘Whoever’s Been Using This Bed’ (no 85, 1997).
The Earthmen were also one of the bands that played on Recovery back in the 90s. The three original hosts Jane Gazzo, Leigh Whannell and Dylan Lewis reunited for a few drinks last weekend.
The Earthmen will reunite for live shows to launch the album in November. Details in coming weeks.
