Australian recording artists Murder Mouse Blues Band will appear at the Mex Pub at Courtenay on Aug. 31.

The gig is part of their The Thirst, The Hunger and The Horn CD release tour.

The Thirst, The Hunger and The Horn was featured in the November 2011 issue of Rolling Stone magazine.

The Murder Mouse Blues Band is one of the premier Australian blues folk rock outfits in Oz today. Founded in 2008 by Adam Morris, a singer songwriting juggernaut, Murder Mouse has quickly become a national force in Australian music.

Joining Adam in the band is multi-instrumentalist, composer, songwriter and record producer Jon Edwards who plays blistering harp, electric, slide, lap steel, mandolin and banjo.

Australian national radio station Triple J’s unearth competition has recently charted the Murder Mouse Blues Band as the No. 1 roots band for the entire competition. The unearth comp is contested by over 20,000 bands nationwide.

The Murder Mouse song Apocalypse Blues was nominated for Blues Recording of the year in the ninth annual Independent Music Award in 2011.
