Canadian rock royalty The Tea Party visited the Noise11 studios recently following the announcement of an Australian tour.

Stuart Chatwood, Jeff Martin and Jeff Burrows came back together after seven years in 2011, playing a massive set of shows in Canada. Now they are in Australia to bring the magic back to their devoted fans Down Under.

The trio agree that all it took to reunite was “time”. Frontman Jeff Martin says that The Tea Party’s reunion is “a bit different” from the slew of bands getting back together recently.

“From what we’re told,” Martin says, “when we left in 2005 there was a big void that was left. The Tea Party were a very unique thing in rock and roll music. There’s no one like us; hasn’t been.”

It was the overwhelming demand for the band to return and Martin says the three “felt, almost spiritually, that it was time to put to back together”.

Martin also says new music “is going to be necessary.”

“With The Tea Party and how organic it is live, and the tangents we go off on within songs, sometimes those are the seeds of new material,” he reveals. “Definitely there will be new Tea Party material in the New Year, at some point.”

Check out the whole chat below, which covers Chatwood’s Prince Of Persia video game soundtrack, the battle with US conservative Tea Party movement over their website, the fact that their songs haven’t dated, and more.

Tickets are on sale for their Australian tour, from Ticketek for Brisbane and Sydney, Tickermaster for Melbourne, Venuetix for Adelaide and OzTix for Perth.
