More Darlinghurst More Darlinghurst

Melbourne's beloved Darlinghurst will open for The Corrs on their One Night Only concert in the Hunter Valley alongside Wet Wet Wet and Gaudion, the group revealed on social media. Darlinghurst confirmed that they had replaced Ben Lee, who was supposed to play tomorrow night.

"Excited and honoured is an understatement!!!! We can officially announce that we will be joining The Corrs, Wet Wet Wet, and Gaudion," the band shared. 

The lineup has also expanded to include Germein, who wrote "Blown away to be added to the lineup to open for our favourite Irish sibling band, The Corrs this weekend!!!! This show means soooo much to us, having grown up with their music - they have always been a massive inspiration to us as a fellow family band.

"We were also incredibly lucky to have Sharon Corr feature on some of our earliest recordings at Jealoustown Recording Studios in Ireland."

Darlinghurst is Jason Resch, Pagan Newman, Cassie Leopold and Matt Darvidis. Since their debut single, Sorry We Won't Get Back To You, in 2019, the group have been blazing a path through Australian country music. 

They released their debut self-titled album in September 2021, which landed at #1 on the ARIA Country Album Chart and featured their seven previous singles – four of which reached #1 on the Countrytown Hot 50 Country Airplay Chart. Two of their singles have also tasted US success – So Long So Long and Gotta Go Rodeo.

They scored a nomination for 'Best New Talent' at the 2021 Golden Guitar Awards. The following year, they were awarded 'New Talent Of The Year' for their track, Where Do We Go, and were nominated for "Contemporary Album Of The Year' and 'Group or Duo of the Year.' 

The four-piece recently teamed up with Amber Lawrence on the title track from her seventh album, Living for the Highlights, and previously released with Shannon Noll on You Stopped Making Sense. 

Their brand-new single, Hangman hits the ground running; a jangly guitar opens the track, giving way to a stampede of percussion. Recorded at Secret Sound Studios, its foot-stomping, southern feel instantly makes you feel like moving, while the song's lyrics cleverly deliver a discerning message. 

Cassie says, "Not unlike a ligature to the neck that brings unconsciousness, so too, metaphorically, a toxic relationship does the same. Hangman is about breaking the cycle and hanging in limbo."
