Get all your tour and ticket info for the Screaming Jets Aussie tour
It's hard to believe the Screaming Jets have been around for 25 years.. and to celebrate the Aussie rockers are gonna be blazing their way across Australia.
Lead singer Dave Gleeson says this is a pretty massive milestone for the band whose humble beginnings started winning a Battle of the Bands competition.
“As a young guy in a band, I think it was always a goal to be around for as long as you possibly could,” he says.
“To think we started in 1989 and we’re still doing it 25 years later to massive crowds around the country is unbelievable,” says Dave.
“Anyone who’s seen The Screaming Jets’ “Insanitary” video would know that I expected to be dead by 30, which would definitely have put a dent in our 25 year celebrations.”
The band will be road-testing new material from their upcoming album.
“It’s what feeds the desire to get out on the road. There is a real energy that comes from playing songs you have recently created together," says Dave.
"Bernard Fanning put it perfectly when he commented about a song coming from nothing. Before you put pen to paper, pick to guitar, breath to words, there was nothing. A thought becoming reality by our own hand that other people get off on, that’s why it’s the best job in the world.”
