New World Artists, Exclusive Booking Agents for Butterfingers.

Australia’s favourite musical misfits are back, breaking hearts and bones (mostly their own) after a ten-year long hiatus from the recording studio. With a new found vigor and a swag of new material, Butterfingers are officially back in the saddle and continuing to bend genresand the boundaries of good taste with a rare blend of obscenity, wit & charm.


For those unfamiliar with their back story, since their inception in 2002, Butterfingers have proven time and time again to be one of Australia's most successful independent acts and greatest live performers, having released all their own material on their ‘Valley Trash’ label (now ‘Bewilderbeats’) and performing at nearly every major festival this country has ever seen. From early in their career they built a reputation on their energetic & eclectic live shows that crossed genres and blurred boundaries drawing from Hip Hop, Punk, Reggae, Drum & Bass, Stoner Rock, Electronica and just about anything that makes you want to shake your bones, into a cohesive mash-up all of their owncreation.


From potty-mouthed gutter rhymes to heartfelt crooning odes to love lost, Butterfingers have a long streak of Triple J Hottest 100 entries, industry awards & nominations to solidify themselves as a household name. Even through their extended hiatus, Butterfingers continue to gain passionate new followers at an exponential rate.


During this recent break,band leader and front man ‘EvilEddie Jacobson took time out to release a solo album under the ‘Evil Eddie’ moniker with standout track ‘Queensland’ also charting in the Triple J Hottest 100. Taking a step back from the limelight he also joined and released an album with Brisbane thrash/punk outfit ‘Spitfireliar’ as lead guitarist which saw quite a serious musical diversion from even the heaviest material heard before in Butterfingers’ genre-hopping experiments.
 

Bringing Spitfireliar bassist Bradzilla back with him to the otherwise original line-up, 2017 looks to be the year that propels Butterfingers back into the Australian consciousness with fresh zest and their greatest material to date. With the explosive new Exotica/Hip-Hop single ‘Big Night Out’, Butterfingers return to their greatest storytelling form with a true tale of how Evil Eddie broke his back on a night out in their native stomping grounds of Fortitude Valley.
