Grinspoon are reuniting after a five-year hiatus to go back out on the road to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album Guide To Better Living.
The band from Lismore in northern NSW have announced a 27-date national tour to play the double-platinum album from start to finish, including songs such as "Pedestrian", "Just Ace" and "Don't Go Away".
"I hate nostalgia, it gets my goat," Grinspoon frontman Phil Jamieson said.
"What I do love are tunes, and we've got tunes! "NBT", "Balding Matters", "Scalped" are probably what are considered to be album tracks or 'filler', but I can't wait to spit 'em out with as much venom as I did as a 19-year-old.
"Then there is "Railroader", "Repeat", "Just Ace", "Champion", "Boundary"... it's like a little treasure box of ditties.
"I don't think I really knew what I was doing when I made Guide To Better Living, but I know that playing this album from start to finish is going to be one of the most challenging, enjoyable and kickass things I'll ever do.
"Bring on the road, bring on the tour, bring on the shows... happy 20th birthday GTBL!"
Grinspoon will also release an expanded version of Guide To Better Living on June 23.
Grinspoon's 27-date national tour kicks off in Traralgon, Victoria, on June 23 and finishes in Batemans Bay in NSW on September 24.
