Modern-rockers Trial Kennedy call it quits, but not before a final Australian tour.

Trial Kennedy emerged out of the Melbourne punk scene to become a majestic rock act, releasing the acclaimed New Manic Art album in 2008 and the equally-revered Living Undesigned album of last year.

After ten years as a band, Tim, Stacey, Shaun and Richard are calling it a day.

The band said in a statement: “For a number of reasons all of us in the band have chosen to close down the project that is Trial Kennedy. We are calling it a day with our heads held high for we have had the most incredible time as Trial Kennedy.”

After thanking their fans profusely, they note: “We have all come to a stage in our musical and personal lives that has seen us looking to other avenues, exciting new avenues.”

So, having toured Australia “literally hundreds of times” (or so they say), the quartet have booked a final set of shows around the nation to say farewell – and are also asking fans what setlist they want.

They’ll be joined by My Echo and there will be a very special appearance from After The Fall in Sydney.

Tickets are on sale from Oztix for Brisbane and Gold Coast, Mostix for Sydney an Adelaide, both for Newcastle, and from The Corner for Melbourne.
