The Poor Currently Mixing ‘Round 2’
February 8, 2010
Australian rockers The Poor are currently mixing ‘Round 2’, the follow-up to the band’s triumphant 2009 return ‘Round 1’. The band are hoping to release the new CD around April 2010, with a string of live shows to follow.
In mid 1993, the band recorded their debut album, Who Cares, at Festival Studios in Sydney and Montreal, Canada with English Producer Paul Northfield. The Poor Boys also became The Poor, the name change was straight to the point just like the band and on March 21st 1994, Epic Records USA released the single, “More Wine Waiter Please”. It instantly became the number 1 most added track on US Rock Radio and attracted unprecedented acclaim from the U.S. rock press. Australia soon followed suit with the release of Who Cares on June 13 that year.
It wasn’t until 2008 that The Poor returned to the stage for the first time in over 10 years when they were invited to join US metal icons WASP on a national tour around of Australia as special guests. Within minutes of being back on stage on the first night of the tour it seemed that those 10 years had passed in the blink on an eye. The Poor partied with many old time fans while gaining many new fans who were witnessing their super charged live performance for the very first time.
