Biography

In February 2009, The Getaway Plan shocked Australian fans and media by calling it quits just a year after the release of their smash hit debut album “Other Voices, Other Rooms”. The album that spawned three radio hits and made them one of the most successful young bands in Australia, sent the band on a hectic touring schedule that included three sold out headline tours and ended with their first appearance on the Big Day Out. But that same schedule caused the young four piece to burn out, eventually deciding to pack it in and move onto other projects. Each member embarked on different paths, pursuing musical endeavors such as The Amity Affliction, Young Heretics, Deez Nuts and Hopeless, while The Getaway Plan continued to garner radio play and sales despite the bands absence. Reuniting for charity in September 2010, The Getaway Plan played two shows at the 1200 capacity Billboards – selling out both in just 9 hours and proving that the band’s popularity has not slowed down in the 18 months since their demise. The shows also gave the band the life and energy they were missing 18 months prior. And through practicing and reuniting post-show, the band decided that the time is ripe to give it all another shot. They will return in 2011 as a full time recording and touring band, with a new album expected out late Winter. Their first tour will be the RECLAMATION tour this coming February, with main support from young Sydney five piece TONIGHT ALIVE, fresh from recording their debut album in the United States with Mark Trombino. Opening the shows will be close friends Secrets In Scale from Melbourne, who are preparing to release their debut album “Desert Mouth” early in 2011 – their DMT Mixtape is currently available at the band’s website. Tickets are on sale December 16, with no extra shows to be added in any city. Fans are warned to purchase tickets early to avoid disappointment.
