Friends and fans get ready, for the band are about to release their first new material in two and a half years.

The brand new single, entitled “Twenty Dollar Counter Meal”, channels Gillian Welch, Bruce Springsteen and Paul Kelly.  It’s a tale based on falling into a suburban grind, and taking comfort in one of the last good old Australian vice: a calorie-filled, cheese-topped $20 counter meal, with gravy and a beer.

“I wanted to write the kind of song will make Australians living overseas really homesick, sad and hungry,” Luke jokes. ” And I also wanted it to be a piece of music that Australians can play to the world and say, ‘this is what a weeknight in Melbourne feels like.’ ”

To celebrate the release of the single, Luke Legs + the Midnight Specials are hosting an afternoon matinee show at the iconic Workers Club SUNDAY 10th NOVEMBER. The show is hosted by Timber and Steel.

Support from Pheobe Schina, and ex-Justin Bieber-backup-singer-turned-country-songstress Charlie Thorpe. Door open 1.30pm.
