THE VINES GET READY TO ROCK RUSSIAN STANDARD VODKA LIVE AT THE CHAPEL!

May 05, 2011

One of Australia’s greatest rock bands, The Vines, are set to explode onto the stage at the first Live At The Chapel event for 2011, presented by Russian Standard Vodka. Muscling their way back into the spotlight, The Vines will raise the roof of the spectacular St Stephen’s Anglican Church in Newtown on Thursday 26th May.

The Vines are, without doubt, one of the most intriguing acts to come out of Australia in years. They have graced the covers of international music bibles Rolling Stone US and NME and their debut album “Highly Evolved” sold in excess of 2 million copies. Having just released their highly anticipated, raucous new single “Gimme Love” from the forthcoming album “Future Primitive” out 3rd June, The Vines have well and truly returned to the form that shot them to international stardom.

The Vines’ frontman Craig Nicholls said today: “We’re stoked to play Live At The Chapel, following in the footsteps of some bands that we really admire, like Foo Fighters and Coldplay. Can’t wait to play the new album live!”

One of Australia’s premier live music events, Live At The Chapel, made a triumphant return in 2010 with a new partner, Russian Standard Vodka, and a breathtaking live set from The Temper Trap.

This year Russian Standard Vodka is proud to once again offer fans an opportunity to experience ‘music as it should be’; live, intimate and authentic. There is no better partner for this occasion than Russian Standard Vodka, ‘vodka as it should be.’ Made from the finest ingredients and exclusively distilled and bottled in Russia, Russian Standard Vodka is authentic Russian vodka.

Around the world, music is a major focus for Russian Standard Vodka. Here in Australia, Live At The Chapel offers the complete experience for music lovers to engage with real music and real vodka.

Over the course of seven memorable series, Live At The Chapel has played host to a plethora of local and international stars including Lady Gaga, Foo Fighters, Jet, Coldplay, John Mayer and The Temper Trap. Filmed for TV and online platforms, music fans all over Australia will have the chance to experience this very special live music event featuring The Vines, in what is sure to be one of the most anticipated gigs of the year!
