THE GETAWAY PLANís debut album Other Voices, Other Rooms (released in February of this year) was greeted with an overwhelming response from the fans and industry alike. Triple J made it their feature album of the week and record crowds flocked to the bandís in-store launches at JB HiFi in Melbourne and Utopia Records in Sydney. The album debuted at an incredible #14 on the National ARIA Charts and #1 on the AIR Independent Charts, surprising many by remaining in both months after itís release. The bandís first national tour in support of the album sold out in all but one venue, with hundreds of fans turned away from the capacity venues, and hugely energetic responses from the crowds within. The band has since played national support to Millencolin (US) and will embark on Kisschasyís ĎSkins and Bonesí tour in May / June.
After the success of the albumís first single Streetlight on Triple J and Channel V, THE GETAWAY PLAN have successfully crossed over with their second single Where the City Meets the Sea. The track is now firmly on rotation at Nova and was one of the most played songs on Triple J so far this year Ė meanwhile itís highly engaging video has been in the Top 10 most played songs on Channel V for over a month, and has clocked up over 100,000 plays on YouTube and MySpace. The single debuted at Number 28 on the mainstream charts and Number 1 on the independent charts, followed by a sold out national tour of Australia!
