Melbourne’s TOEHIDER have announced their new single ‘Whoa!’
Taken from the forthcoming album ‘What Kind Of Creature Am I?’ the track was premiered last week on Triple J with Richard Kingsmill and sports the trademark Queen-esque tongue-in-cheek pop-rock vocals of Mike Mills.
The limited edition CD single also comes with a karaoke version to help fans to learn the epic chorus ahead of shows.
Toehider kicked off their co-headlining tour with Wollongong’s TROLDHAUGEN last week to a packed Valve Bar in Sydney last week and will continue to head around the country throughout March.
The larger-than-life prog rock stylings of Toehider’s Mike Mills
have gone from strength from strength over the past 12 months, supporting The Protomen (USA), Devin Townsend (CAN), sleepmakeswaves & Twelve Foot Ninja, as well as a stunning rendition of Kate Bush favourite ‘Wuthering Heights’ which has topped 300,000 views in a matter of days (watch here
). Along with his vocal contribution to Dutch supergroup Ayreon’s critically-acclaimed ‘The Theory of Everything’ it’s been a busy period for the Melbourne artist.
Toehider recently capped off a successful crowdfunding campaign, reaching their target of $4000 in less than 12 hours and going on to raise nearly 350% of their goal.
