Melbourne pop-folk duo, the Pierce Brothers, will be returning to Broome by popular demand.

Twin brothers Jack and Pat Pierce will be performing at Divers Tavern for the second time in 2018 on Friday July 13 and Saturday July 14.

After performing in March, they said it was easy for them to return to town.

“We had such a great crowd and everyone was having a party,” they said.

“We only heard one thing from everyone after the show: that we had to come back in peak season, so we booked it pretty much on the night!”

“It seemed like we just couldn’t not come back when we were all having so much fun.”

As well as their headline show in March, the Pierce Brothers had previously ventured on a tour of North America shortly after releasing their debut album, Into the Dirt.

“We are about to embark on a European tour including festival slots, headline shows and a bunch of shows supporting Tash Sultana,” they said.

“Our gig at Divers Tavern was our only mid-year Australian show before we head off to the UK for two months.”

“We love performing around Australia in regional towns and we do it as much as possible.”

“We’re working on a new album and we’re planning on a massive regional tour once that album has been released.”

The Pierce Brothers said although pop-folk is the best way to describe their sound, it’s the performance that matters most to them.

“The performance is really what Pierce Brothers specialise in: high energy, dance folk,” they said.

“Think Mumford and Sons, if they were more energetic and only had two people.”

“We try to get the crowd as riled up and entertained as possible, that’s really what we’re always working towards.”
