With over a decade of touring and three EPs to their name, the band successfully launched their first full-length over the weekend with two massive shows –  to keep the good vibes flowing, The Ninth Chapter will be taking their shit-hot show through NSW and Qld over the coming months.

Top 5 Most memorable moments with The Ninth Chapter

  1. New Years Eve at Woodford Folk Festival. This was a highlight of our career to date playing to thousands over two hours and included the famous candle lighting ceremony Woodford is renowned for.

  2. Playing after the legendary Ben Ottewell (Gomez) at the Bellingen Winter Music Festival and right before The Teskey Brothers. A highlight from a fan standpoint was that we were sandwiched between two of our favourite acts and enjoyed the atmosphere that they created, allowing our set to be one of our most memorable moments.

  3. Being joined by Damon Downey, formally of Sneaky Sound System, for a show in Bellingen, NSW. A small town with a big love for music has made us regulars over the years and this show was certainly unusual for a number of reasons but mainly for Damon’s epic 30 minute MC take over.

  4. Venturing up to the highlands of Mt Hotham for their Cool Summer Festival. We were lucky enough to witness Tash Sultana right before she took off globally. An amazing festival on the ski slopes in January on a cool night watching Tash tear it up was certainly a memorable moment.

  5. We love small towns with big hearts and it’s a privilege to play regional shows in Australia where you see music lovers at their purist. They’re not there for any sort of trend, they just loving being in the moment with creativity and this in itself is certainly a highlight of our career to date.
