A FEW WORDS
“Soldier Field” is a song Brent wrote while he was on tour with his other band The Dandy Warhols. He was in Chicago playing the Lollapalooza Festival. He took a taxi to a restaurant near Soldier Field where he stood staring up at the sign and started thinking of his family and friends back home. A couple of lyrics here and a couple there and the song was basically finished on the flight home to Australia. To Brent, it sort of feels like a follow up to his song, “Shameless” off the Immigrant Union 2016 LP, ‘Anyway’.
Featuring Brent DeBoer of the Dandy Warhols (US) and boasting Aussie indie rock queen and Grammy nominee Courtney Barnett as a former member, Immigrant Union are a local band with international rock royalty heritage. With their unique Australian-American psychedelic/folk/country sound, they have supported Noel Gallagher and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and toured their own headline shows, creating unforgettable moments at boutique festivals, occasional BBQs and the odd house party across Australia. The band’s yet to be released third album, Judas, was recorded in Melbourne and mixed in Portland, Oregon, combining their signature Americana elements with brilliant rad rock. Scheduled for release on Cheersquad Records mid 2020.
