AUSTRALIA’s UK-based folk-punk troubadour Benny Mayhem is returning to perform in his hometown Mandurah.

Mayhem has released his new single Song for Absent Friends and is touring Australia, including a free show at the Monkey Bar, Mandurah on Friday, May 19.

Written in a hotel room in the Austrian Alps, Song For Absent Friends is a mix of Mayhem’s trademark folk-punk sound with Sunny boys-style Australian power pop and a touch of Californian punk.

Mayhem, the former front man for Perth band Project Mayhem, is now based in the UK.

He is a wandering troubadour who has toured continental Europe twice and the UK three times.
