Britpop legends Supergrass will tour Australia in April and May with their arsenal of hits including 'Lenny', 'Going Out', 'Richard III', 'Pumping On Your Stereo' and 'Sun Hits The Sky'. This five-date run will be their first headline shows on our shores in 12 years and will coincide with the band's recently-announced six scheduled performances at Groovin' The Moo festivals across Australia.

The exciting news follows the band's announcement in September 2019 that they were reforming after a ten-year split to tour the United Kingdom, Europe and North America in celebration of the 25th anniversary of their seminal debut album 'I Should Coco'. Just moments before the band's surprise reunion show at Glastonbury's Pilton Party in September last year, frontman Gaz Coombes told NME:

"We've had an intense week of rehearsing to get back into the swing and it's sounding pretty amazing. We just plugged in and started playing, and you just feel those moves that we all play together. It's like our legs are tied with rope. It's quite bizarre, but I guess that chemistry never goes away."

Since forming in Oxford UK in 1993, Supergrass have received nods from the BRIT Awards, NME Awards, Q Awards and Ivor Novello Awards and are widely-recognised as one of the most important bands to emerge during the 1990s. They first broke onto the Britpop scene with their Mercury-nominated UK #1 debut album 'I Should Coco' in 1995, with its fourth single 'Alright' catapulting the band to global success. Five acclaimed studio albums followed—'In It For The Money' (1997), 'Supergrass' (1999), 'Life On Other Planets' (2002), 'Road To Rouen' (2005), 'Diamond Hoo Ha' (2008)—before the band announced their split in 2010, all going on to lead successful solo careers. To mark the 25th anniversary of 'I Should Coco', 'The Strange Ones: 1994–2008' was released last January.

Australian alt-rockers Rocket Science will be joining Supergrass at all shows. The two bands are no strangers to sharing the stage—Rocket Science have supported Supergrass on their 2002 Australian tour before going on to open for the band at many of their shows across the globe. Hailing from Melbourne, the band are known and loved for their signature blend of garage, psych and post-punk, showcased in iconic tracks like 'Burn In Hell', 'One Robot' and 'Being Followed'. They released 'Snake' in August 2019, their first album since disbanding 11 years earlier, and spent the months that followed touring the country with their renowned live show.

Don't miss your chance to experience one of Supergrass's first Australian performances in more than 10 years.
