The original Unearthed band, Grinspoon, have dropped dates for a massive Aussie tour later this year, and they’re taking new friends The Hard AchesGooch Palms, and BUGS out for the ride.

Whipping around the country in October and November, Grinners will take on 11 shows to celebrate the release of the Chemical Hearts album, listing off some of their biggest hits.

The big ol’ run of gigs includes a stack of all ages shows, so better get the whole gang together to belt out ‘Hard Act To Follow‘.

Kicking off in Fremantle on October 11, it’s the first big, headline tour that we’ve been blessed with since Grinspoon went out on the 20th-anniversary tour of Guide To Better Living back in 2017.

Also, the Wollongong show is on Halloween, and I’ll be very disappointed if you lot don’t go all-out for that. As a UOW alum, you better do me proud.

You’ll also be able to cop the Chemical Hearts album on vinyl at the shows (and online, if you can’t make it) and it features a whole bevvy of the band’s fave tracks from over 20 years of back catalogue, including ‘Better Off Alone‘, ‘Just Ace‘, ‘Lost Control‘, and ‘Chemical Heart‘, of course.

Tickets go on sale from 10am Friday June 7 from the Grinspoon website, and there’s a sneaky presale happening from 9am June 5 over here too.

Check out the full dates below, and please join me in blasting their entire discography into your skull today.
