Ed Kuepper is on the road as he starts preparing material for a new solo album. He will perform at the Clarendon Guest House in Katoomba on Friday, September 27.

"I'm hitting the road again ... and doing a pretty select number of solo shows. I'll be debuting a swag of new material which will hopefully see light of day on my planned next solo album Electricity, the High Priest of all Security, plus pulling apart some familiar and some not so familiar tunes from my past catalogue to see what makes it all tick."
