August River Band comes to KBF
Thanks to a Logan City Council funding program, an emerging local band is set to take the next steps in their rapidly rising musical profile.
August River Band will launch their extended play (EP) album featuring 4 new singles at Butterbox Beats at the Kingston Butter Factory Cultural Precinct between 7 pm and 9 pm next Friday on 20 October.
Springwood resident and band spokesman Eev Ferreira said the 5-piece alternative rock and folk band had worked hard since the launch of their live studio album Thank You Pain in 2020 to write new music and refine their sound.
Eev said their first studio EP was produced this year with the help of a Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF) grant.
RADF is a partnership between Logan City Council and the Queensland Government to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
‘The funding allowed us to spend more time putting the album together and getting it over the line,’ he says.
‘The EP is designed to promote and establish the band, which was launched in 2019, in both local and international markets and we’re now ready to unleash it on the world.’
The doors for Butterbox Beats will open at 6.30 pm.
