The New Zealand and Australian-born trio known as Woodlock, featuring brothers Zech Walters (guitar/vocals), Eze Walters (guitar/vocals), and friend Bowen Purcell (drums,) return with “Sunday Drive,” the third single from their upcoming EP Bermuda Sea, set for release on August 5, 2022 via Nettwerk. To celebrate the EP release, Woodlock is finally coming back on tour after taking a long break from playing live and will bring a completely brand-new live experience to the fans with an entirely different format. The ‘Bermuda Sea EP Tour’ will kick off at Melbourne’s Gasometer Hotel on 12 Aug and the band will also play in Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide in the following weeks. The group’s live performance has changed significantly since their tour in 2016 from just an acoustic set up to a full band stage set up exploring new sounds.
Eze Walters shares on the exciting ‘Bermuda Sea EP Tour’ announcement, “We are really looking forward to going on tour, playing new music for people and just getting out on a bit of an adventure. Our best songs have always been written while out on the road so look forward to the new song ideas to come out of it.”
WATCH AND LISTEN TO “SUNDAY DRIVE” HERE
Woodlock’s collection of new songs were created during Covid, battling with scheduling conflicts, the theme across the EP is the feeling of overall yearning. The desire to travel to new places, meet new people, and realize what’s missing once it’s taken from you. “Sunday Drive,” the third single from Bermuda Sea, is a bittersweet sweet reflective ode to the heart-felt feeling of saying goodbye whenever a father drops off his son.
On “Sunday Drive,” Zech shares “The drive to drop-off my son back to his Mum is always this strange bittersweet moment. The time we have together is all about letting him know that his father loves him and that Sunday drive is always a difficult time. I think for both of us because we have to say goodbye all over again. It’s a feeling that no one tells you about I think because it’s a constant hole in your chest when you can’t be there.”
