Old Mervs — 'How The Fark Are Ya' Tour

This is a licensed all ages show—people under the age of 18 will need to attend the event in the company of a responsible adult.

Lifelong friends Henry Carrington-Jones and David House (Old Mervs) grew up together on farms outside of Kojonup, a tiny town approximately three hours south of Perth, Western Australia. As high schoolers they cleared out a stable to use as a rehearsal space for their new band, named after one of Henry’s family farm working dogs. With Henry on drums and David on guitar/vox, it was truly humble beginnings.

Nowadays, Old Mervs are considered one of the most exciting rock acts in Australia. Breakout singles Cellphone (2020), Where I Go (2022), and Sweetheart (2023) have been streamed in the millions; while their second EP, Give It Up (2023), debuted at #2 on the ARIA Australian Albums chart; and in January Sweetheart landed at #47 in the 2023 triple j Hottest 100.

The duo has supported huge international artists, including Liam Gallagher and The Wombats, as well as local heroes Spacey Jane and King Stingray. They also boast a dedicated fanbase of their own, having sold out multiple national tours and performed heroic appearances on premiere festival line-ups, including Splendour In The Grass, Groovin the Moo and Yours and Owls.

They’re set to play the biggest shows of their career in 2024, when they embark on their ‘How The Fark Are Ya?’ tour across Australia and NZ, this August and September.
