Wisdom Machine is out in Australia through Poison City Records on March 25th but in the meantime you can pre-order the album and receive 3 digital tracks. The Bennies have also inked deals with international labels Uncle M (Europe) and Paper + Plastick (UK and US) for the release which follows on from 2014's Heavy Disco.

Currently experiencing severe tour withdrawals pending the kick off of the March and April run of Australian tour dates, The Bennies, have confirmed a run of epic international shows, taking to the stage in Germany, France and the UK. The tour includes Belgium's Groezrock Festival where The Bennies will play along with the likes of Rancid, Less Than Jake and Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls before returning to Australian shores in May for Queensland's Big Pineapple Festival.

In anticipation for the shows check out the NSFW video clip for latest single from the album, Detroit Rock Ciggies
