THE Grates has announced a whole bunch of comrades who will be joining them and Last Dinosaurs on their nation-wide Summer's Breath tour. 

To help shake the New York chills and warm the stage they've dared Dune Rats to take the stage in Toowoomba and Brisbane and Melbourne's Loon Lake to help them on Melbourne Cup Eve at The Hi-Fi. 

Also on board are rockers Them 9's in Ballarat and The Infants in Geelong.

Adelaide's 20th Century Graduate will rival Patience with their energy in their hometown, whilst Sydney's Guineafowl will be making a special trip to Perth along with noise-pop project Gunns.  

Dragging Pianos will be there for the finale, exhaling their hushed acoustics in Townsville and Cairns. 

North Queensland's The Medics will be making more then one appearance, jumping on the Summer's Breath bus at Wollongong and seeing the tour through. Those who have witnessed The Medics will attest; they are one hell of a live show, with first single 'Beggars' earning them a Queensland Music Award and garning some serious Triple J airplay. 

The Medics will be looking to play a few tunes earmarked for their album, due out in early 2012.  They will be ripping up the stage and showing the crowd exactly what's what in the final leg of the tour, taking in Newcastle, Sydney, Byron Bay, Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Townsville and Cairns.

For those who can't wait for the show to get extra loving from Patience and John, The Grates have tucked away a special track within their Youtube video of 'Sweet Dreams' (see right).  

Tickets for their Summer's Breath Tour are one sale now.
