Jebediah Release First Single In 12 Years, Announce 2023 National Tour

Jebediah have returned with their first new music in twelve years. The Perth rock band have dropped the comeback single ‘Gum Up The Bearings’, along with a fistful of tour dates to cap off 2023.

In the lead-up to their slot on the Good Things 2023 lineup, alongside Fall Out Boy and Limp Bizkit, the Jebs will visit fans in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth this November.

Jebediah – ‘Gum Up The Bearings’

Rooted in both the past and the present, ‘Gum Up The Bearings’ is Jebediah’s first new release since 2011’s Kosciuszko LP (which hit #6 on the ARIA charts). 

“It doesn’t feel like that many years have passed since Kosciuszko, but that’s part of the phenomenon of becoming middle aged, I suppose,”  guitarist and vocalist Kevin Mitchell said in a press statement.

“In some respects, it’s quite a relief, as we started working on new music back in 2018 and then so much happened during the ensuing years that could have easily just killed the whole project altogether,” he continued. “However, I think maybe sheer tenacity won out in the end, and here we are with a brand new song, some five years later. Apart from being a relief, it also feels like an accomplishment for Jebediah to still be creating new music after nearly 30 years together – we’re not ready to be a nostalgia act just yet.”

Mitchell recently announced a solo tour, playing the hits from both Jebediah and his Bob Evans project this October.
