Swamp Stompers gear up for summer tour

The Swamp Stompers will be travelling the East Coast performing at some of their favourite rural drinking holes, including in frontman Corey Legge's home stomping ground on the South Coast.

The summer tour gets underway at The Murrah and Narooma before hitting Wollongong and Old Bar.

The tour will conclude over a weekend of shows at the Thredbo Blues Festival.

Formed by members on both the South and North Coast of NSW, The Swamp Stompers play their own irresistible brand of funky rock and blues with heavy grooves.

They have spent seven years crafting a unique original sound that may be the musical lovechild of the John Butler Trio, Led Zeppelin, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Three-part harmonies, catchy guitar riffs, and mind blowing didgeridoo soundscapes set this original blues-rock power trio apart from the pack.

In recent times The Swamp Stompers have stomped their mark on prominent Australian music festivals including Queenscliff Music Festival (VIC), Caloundra Music Festival (QLD) and Blues at Bridgetown (WA), with incredibly high-energy live performances leaving punters and peers in complete awe.

The band's fourth EP, Shadows on the Wall, was released in September 2018, with the title track receiving regular Triple J airplay and an impressive 4.5/5 star review from Triple J.

Shadows on the Wall peaked at #8 on the Australian Blues & Roots Airplay Chart and landed at #8 on the AMRAP Regional Community Radio Chart in October 2018.

The Swamp Stompers are also set to undertake their first European tour in 2020, off the back of numerous positive international reviews.
