Immigrant Union (featuring Brent of The Dandy Warhols) is a psych, alt-rock sometimes-alt country band from Melbourne, Aus. The band has released two albums, Self Titled and the critically acclaimed, Anyway. “I listened to their entire album. When it was over I listened to it again! It's rare that I do that!” (Bob Boilen, NPR) The band is releasing its 3 rd album, Judas, in mid 2020.
Immigrant Union, have toured extensively both domestically and internationally, playing festival and club shows. I.U have also toured with bands such as BRMC, The Lemonheads, Noel Gallagher, Sebadoh and Wolfmother. The band featured Courtney Barnett on slide guitar until it understandably became too difficult for her to juggle both her solo career and Immigrant Union. As well as I.U’s 3rd album coming out this year, Immigrant Union are also releasing a short film, The Battle of Bella, shot in Joshua Tree, CA. The film stars Bob and Brent from I.U as well as music from Judas as the soundtrack. The Battle of Bella, was written and directed by acclaimed indie film maker, Mike Bruce.
Obviously 2020 is a very strange year but the band is excited to try and be productive as is safely possible.
