Jebediah have announced a series of regional shows, with the stalwart alternative rock group heading out on the road for the first time in a while.
The four-piece have announced a series of New South Wales headline shows for next January that will see them playing a five-date run through Dee Why, Bateau Bay, Ulladulla, Campbelltown, and Towardgi.
Pioneers of the late ’90s punk rock grunge scene. In 1997 it all started going a little nuts for the band, playing over 150 shows and releasing breakthrough album Slightly Odway. Two beloved singles from that debut album ‘Harpoon’ and ‘Leaving Home’ made an indelible impression on Australian music fans when they ranked in Triple J’s recent Hottest 100 of the last 20 Years.
With other tracks like ‘Military Strongman’, ‘Teflon’, ‘Benedict’, and ‘Jerks Of Attention’, it is little wonder that Slightly Odway still captures hearts and ears and debuted in the national top 10 back in 1997.
Their reputation for scorching live shows proceeded them and Jebediah were named towards the top of the bills for Big Day Out, Livid and Homebake. The Perth pack kept kicking goals, with follow up release Of Someday Shambles hitting all the right notes, it debuted at #2 in Australia and took the band to international status.
Third album, Jebediah and fourth album, the independently released Braxton Hicks also debuted at the pointy end of the ARIA charts featuring kicking singles ‘Fall Down’, ‘No Sleep’ and ‘First Time’ respectively.
Taking a 7 year break from touring (chiefly while frontman Kevin Mitchell explored his solo guise as Bob Evans), the band had quietly continued to write together; 2011′s ARIA nominated Kosciuszko was the result. Singles ‘Lost My Nerve’, ‘She’s Like A Comet’ and ‘Control’ promptly took over the airwaves of Australia as the band undertook an extensive and blistering sold out tour, solidifying their place in Australia’s live rock scene.
If you’re in New South Wales, or want to make a trip of it, come and witness one of Australia’s most beloved rock bands in their natural habitat: the rocking live stage.
