HUNGRY KIDS OF HUNGARY SELL OUT THE METRO, SLIP INTO CMJ TOP 50

| On 24, May 2011

Proving themselves as one of Australia’s favourite young, live drawcards, Hungry KIds of Hungary’s The Final Escapade Tour is still gaining serious momentum now with Sydney’s Metro Theatre now SOLD OUT, while tickets to the final show at Brisbane’s Hi-Fi is selling fast. These shows are the final for the tour that also features sets from Perth’s The Chemist, Andy Bull and Daniel Lee Kendall (Syd and Bris only).

These are the last headline dates for 2011 for the band and the end of the line for their debut album Escapades, that is garnering attention and pricking ears worldwide, slipping into the Top 50 of the American CMJ College Music Chart at #46. Following this, the band will break for the first time since their inception almost three years ago to work on new material.

PRAISE FOR ESCAPADES

triple j Feature Album

★★★★★ – TIME OFF
“A meticulously crafted, stunningly accomplished endeavour, Escapades
is the kind of debut album that deserves to be discussed almost
exclusively in glowing terms. From the cascading guitar lines and
swooning harmonies of opener Coming Around to the Rubber Soul-esque
balladry of six-minute closer The Window Shopper, the record is a
near-flawless work of pop-rock perfection.”

★★★★ THE BRAG – Album of the Week
“That they sing as well as they play is a bonus, that their songs
never tire is a plus, and that their album shows an impressive
diversity of styles without ever losing its character earns extra
points”

★★★★ – SYDNEY MORNING HERALD
“They should be called Restless Kids Of Hungary because this is an
album of exuberant exploration into as many corners of pop as they can
manage.  You name it and chances are the Hungry Kids are trying it”

DRUM MEDIA – CD Of The Week
“Escapades proves and exciting and enthralling debut from another of
Australia’s finest newcomers.”

★★★★ – MX
“Our latest and greatest purveyors of pop have emerged, their
tremendous talents bursting forth, hooks and all, to make Escapades
one of the local releases of the year.”
