It’s a big day for fans of multi award winning group, The McClymonts as they release a brand new single and announce details of a new studio album and release the dates for the first leg of a national tour. The single, entitled “House”, is released to radio today and is also available for download and streaming. The album, ‘Endless’ will be released on Friday 13th January, 2017 while the national tour will commence on Wednesday 25th January at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment & Conference Centre.
‘Endless’ is the fifth studio album for the sisters Brooke, Sam & Mollie and is produced by Andy Mak (Tina Arena, Vera Blue) and recorded in Sydney and the Central Coast. ‘Endless’ follows the highly successful 2014 album ‘Here’s To You & I’ which produced three hit singles including “Forever Begins Tonight” and saw the girls receive two Golden Guitar Awards for ‘Group or Duo of the Year’ and ‘Top Selling Album of the Year’ in 2015.
The writing and recording of ‘Endless’ has taken place during one of the most successful years in the bands history as they undertook a highly successful 10th Anniversary tour which played to packed houses and rave reviews. On a personal level, Brooke made her acting debut in the feature film ‘Spin Out’, while Sam took on the role of host of the ninth season of the reality dating show ‘The Farmer Wants A Wife’ while Mollie gave birth to her first baby, Ned.
Mollie commented on the album title, “’Endless’ reflects how we’re feeling about our lives right now and our love and dedication to our family and also for music. We will be doing this forever – that’s our plan.”
That happiness and gratitude shines through in the songs lyrics. Lead single “House” includes the lines “I used to always be thinking about everything I’m not, instead of everything I’ve got”. Meanwhile the album’s title track may be a contender for ‘wedding song of the year’ and talks of their “Endless” love for their respective husbands. Meanwhile songs like “Nothing Good Comes Easy” and “Like We Used To” acknowledge that while the girls are in a good place personally it doesn’t come without hard work and sacrifice.
Brooke reflects on the songwriting inspiration, “We got to connect with so many fans and friends on the ’10 Years of Hits’ tour and as you hear their stories we realised that there are a lot of people that have grown up with our music and they are going through the same feelings, whether positive or negative as we do and in a way ‘Endless’ is a diary of our lives right now which can be just as relevant to someone else’s life as it is to ours”.
Part one of ‘The Endless Tour’ is announced today and goes on sale at 9am AEDT on Wednesday 19th October. The tour will be the most expansive of their career to date and will take in locations they have never played or have not been to for some time. Brooke, Sam & Mollie want to assure the fans that the tour will be rolled out in stages and if you don’t see a town near you right now then keep on watching as more dates will be announced.
Sam commented on what fans can expect from the new show, “It’s always fun when you add new songs to the setlist and in addition to the new songs fans will get the ones they know like “Wrapped Up Good” and “Kick It Up” and “Forever Begins Tonight”.
