Midnight Oil Announce Final Ever Tour + New Album ‘Resist’

Nearly 50 years on from their founding, Midnight Oil will conduct their final ever Australian tour in February-April 2022.

The band have also announced their new album, Resist, which features the recent single, ‘Rising Seas’. Resist follows last year’s The Makarrata Project and features the final recordings made with Midnight Oil bass player Bones Hillman, who passed away in November 2020.

Resist, Midnight Oil’s 15th album, will be released in 2022. Pre orders begin at 12:01am AEDT on Tuesday 30th November. Head here.

The upcoming tour includes four A Day On the Green events and appearances at Mona Foma and Bluesfest. The Oils will kick off their headline run at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre on Wednesday, 23rd February, playing shows in metro and regional locations across NSW, VIC, WA, SA, NT, QLD and the ACT, before wrapping up at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena on Thursday 21st April.

“Having always tackled every tour like it’s the last, this time it actually will be,” said Peter Garrett. “These will be sad and beautiful gigs but luckily we’re still capable of blowing the roof off any stage and that’s what we intend to do,” said Jim Moginie, adding, “You could call this a farewell tour, but Midnight Oil will still continue in some form or other.”
