Currently experiencing severe tour withdrawals pending the kick off of the March and April run of Australian tour dates, The Bennies, have confirmed a run of epic international shows, taking to the stage in Germany, France and the UK. The tour includes Belgium’s Groezrock Festival where The Bennies will play along with the likes of Rancid, Less Than Jake and Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls before returning to Australian shores in May for Queensland’s Big Pineapple Festival.
