Claude Hay drops new single ‘Burn’ + Katoomba Concert Date

Claude Hay's latest film clip single 'Burn' is loaded with political commentary. Inspired by the corporate greed of the coal seam gas fracking industry — Hay doesn’t hold anything back! As fuel for his lyrics, Hay doesn’t shy away from the heartfelt experiences of growing up in Katoomba, where fracking has always been a local hot-topic.

The blues-rocker says: “Burn lyrics were written after watching two documentaries on fracking, one pro-fracking and one against. I dug around on the web to find out more on the pro-fracking doco and to no surprise, I found out it was funded by one of the big petrochemical companies. Pure rage naturally came out.”


The film clip was shot and edited by Australian filmmaker and IF Award winner Michael Joy (Men's Group), and features breathtaking landscapes of the upper Blue Mountains, just a stone throw away from Hay's abode and studio. It was the first song written for his album 'Roller Coaster' and features a 3-piece band, diversifying from Hay's well-loved One Man Band sound.


Following on from a mammoth 22 show run in the Netherlands and UK, Hay is returning home to promote the 'Burn' single and film clip with a run of shows on the East Coast Tour. As part of the tour, Hay will be making a very special stop at Katoomba for an intimate live performance with the 3-piece British blues-rock band, Wille and the Bandits bustling along for the ride.


Wille and the Bandits were listed in the top ten must-see bands at Glastonbury 2014 by BBC Radio 1 and have been assertively carving a place for themselves in the UK / European music scene. This is their first run in Australia, and they are ready to wow Aussies with their brand of modern day Hendrix meets Cream.

East Coast Tour — Katoomba
Hay will be hitting up his hometown Katoomba as part of the East Coast Tour on Friday 3rd November, 8 pm at the Family Hotel. He will be accompanied by Wille and the Bandits (UK). Entry is free.
