The Teskey Brothers release cover of ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ by INXS

Warrandyte four-piece The Teskey Brothers have treated fans to an extremely powerful cover of ‘Never Tear Us Apart’ by INXS! The band first performed their rendition of the classic as part of their 2020 ARIA Awards performance and again for ABC TV’s 2020 New Years Eve telecast; due to an overwhelming response online, the outfit entered the studio to reimagine the track in full, releasing their breathtaking recorded version for the first time today on all DSPs.  

“This is an all-time classic Australian song that all of us love. It’s a pleasure to sing it and I don’t know why we didn’t do it earlier.

We’re very proud to dedicate this release to our friend Michael Gudinski who was a huge supporter of Australian music and The Teskey Brothers. Our two worlds collided and we will always be grateful for that.” – Josh Teskey

To celebrate the release, the band has just announced a special headline show at The Forum Theatre in Melbourne on Wednesday April 21st. Tickets will go onsale next Tuesday 13th April at 9am.This show follows the band’s run of dates across the country as part of the Summersalt Festival alongside fellow local heavyweights Boy & Bear, The Cat Empire, John Butler, Montaigne & more.

The Teskey Brothers rounded out 2020 with a special hour-long performance alongside Orchestra Victoria at Hamer Hall, whereby the band collaborated with the 45-piece orchestra to bring their catalogue to life, reimagined by arranger Jamie Messenger and led by conductor Nicholas Buc. The event followed an ARIA Award win for Best Blues & Roots Album for their #1 ARIA chart-topping LP, Live At The Forum. Amidst a 16-date sold out national Australian tour in 2019, the band undertook the arduous task of recording to analogue tape during their four-night stand at the beloved Melbourne venue. The album features songs from the band’s two revered albums, Run Home Slow (2019, #2 ARIA Chart) and Half Mile Harvest (2017), as well as a special cover of John Lennon’s ‘Jealous Guy’. Live At The Forum is the first live album to go number 1 by an Australian band since 1992’s AC/DC Live.
