Virtual Reality and makeshift bongs. Essential tour items with The High Learys

In case you haven’t noticed, Australia is a bloody big country. This is something The High Learys are about to experience first hand. The Perth psych rockers have just released a brand new single called Not Gonna Lie and are gearing up to take it on the road for one epic tour. Cramming 13 shows into a month is no small feat, especially when they span an entire country. To gain a little insight into how one prepares for such an endeavour, we asked the High Learys what they’ll be packing in order to keep their sanity over the next four weeks.
