If you have ever had the luck to see the Dirty Three perform live, you will understand the powerful force that is created by this instrumental trio on stage – creating something close to a musical epiphany or spiritual enlightenment that will always be treasured (read my review of their appearance at the iconic Dark Mofo Festival back in 2019 here). It is big news then that the band is back with news of a new album ‘Love Changes Everything’ and an Australian tour.

Individually, of course, the band has not been missing in action, with Warren Ellis now an integral part of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Mick Turner’s work with Mess Esque and Jim White’s myriad of projects (including his recent solo work and collaborations with Ed Kuepper and Xylouris White).

It’s been over ten years since Dirty Three released the magnificent ‘Toward The Low Sun’ so this will be a treat. And even more exciting, if possible, is seeing the band treading the boards again.

Of the announcement, Ellis says:

What joy to kick off the tour for our new album ‘Love Changes Everything’ in Melbourne Australia for the RISING Festival. Recorded in 5 days. Mixed in a year. Nothing has changed. Older and meaner, sadder and totally dangerous. Dirty Three are Thirty Two years old. Come blow out the candles and help us stick a knife in the cake.

‘Loves Changes Everything’ is out on 14 June via Anchor & Hope / Remote Control Records – the track list is:

  1. Love Changes Everything I
  2. Love Changes Everything II
