Regurgitator Announce Australian Tour Performing ‘Unit’ in Full

Last month, Brisbane alt-rockers Regurgitator announced that they would be hosting a hometown mini-festival in celebration of their seminal 1997 album Unit turning 25. Now, the band have announced that they’re expanding the celebrations to the rest of the country, announcing a tour for May in which they will also perform Unit in full, along with an extended set of hits.

The tour will include stops in Hobart, Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Adelaide and Perth. At each of the shows, Regurgitator will be joined by DZ Deathrays, Butterfingers and Glitoris. Custard will also perform at all dates except for Hobart. Unit-era touring keytarist Shane Rudken will be back onstage, while visuals will be delivered courtesy of lighting artist Ken Weston.

Tickets for the tour will go on sale next Monday, 6th March at 9am local time. There’s an early bird pre-sale which kicks off this Friday, 3rd March from 9am local time which you can sign up for here.

UNITS, Regurgitator’s previously-announced Brisbane festival, will take place at Eatons Hill Outdoors & Ballroom on Saturday, 25th March. Also on the lineup are DZ Deathrays, Custard, Models, Butterfingers, Screamfeeder, Resin Dogs, Flangipanis, Glitoris and more. Cables Ties, Cheap Date and Soy Division have just been added to the bill, which is rounded out by Mitch, Please, The Stress of Leisure and Platonic Sex. Tickets are on sale now.

Unit was Regurgitator’s second album, following 1996’s Tu-Plang. Featuring hits like ‘Polyester Girl’, ‘! (The Song Formerly Known As)’, ‘Black Bugs’ and ‘Everyday Formula’, it peaked at number four on the ARIA Albums Chart and won three trophies at the 1998 ARIA Awards – including Album of the Year and Best Group.
