Wagons are led by the unique swagger of renaissance man Henry Wagons, they are a bunch of facial-hair-wielding tall timber, reminiscent of decades past; when bands gave their audience back bucket loads of charm and were always shrouded in a little enigmatic mystery. Unanimously lauded as one of one of Australia's great live bands, they relentlessly provide a stomping floor fracturing show, no matter which stage they take over.

Drawing on a broad-ranging swag of influences, the Wagons show is a high sensation roller coaster ride that ranges from the bluster of sweaty jumpsuit-era Elvis to the somber, drunken malaise of Lee Hazelwood. They can touch on the tenderness of a recently-heart-broken Roy Orbison while simultaneously embracing the menace of Nick Cave.

The past few years have seen Wagons share stages around the world with Lucinda Williams, Justin Townes Earle, Edward Sharpe and The Magnetic Zero’s, Calexico, Okkervil River, and John Hiatt among others. They've been featured at SXSW, Canadian Music Week and Americana showcases, and made numerous international festival appearances.

The band have just completed their sixth studio album (due June '14), which is destined to be of very broad scope and reach, produced by Mick Harvey (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, PJ Harvey) and mixed by Matt Linesch, famous for his work with Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
