RVG may have released their debut LP A Quality of Mercy in 2017, but the Melbourne band are still riding the wave of its hook-laden indie-rock.

TIO can exclusively reveal the band has signed with the iconic Fat Possum Records.

The US label, perhaps best known as the home of The Black Keys, Iggy and The Stooges, Modest Mouse, Al Green and Spiritualised, is re-releasing the record in the UK and Europe in July.

The label is leading with a release of the title track, including a 12″ version on May 25. The track, which takes its title from an episode of The Twilight Zone, was born from frontwoman Romy Vager imagining herself in the mind of the Bali Nine.

RVG also join fellow Australian band San Cisco on the Fat Possum roster, which also features New Zealand act Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

RVG are one of Australia’s truly independent success stories. The band released A Quality of Mercy independently in March last year without one promotional peep: no press release, no press photos etc. they let the record do the talking.

The band signed to Lorrae McKenna‘s Our Golden Friend / Island Records in late 2017 before re-releasing the album last October.
