Superchunk Announce 2024 ‘Foolish’ 30th Anniversary Tour

American indie rock band Superchunk is set to return to Australia this December for the first time in 11 years. The band will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of their landmark 1994 album, Foolish.

In 2013, Superchunk toured Australia for the first time in 17 years, offering fans a free live album to celebrate their return.

Foolish album was released in April 1994 and produced by Brian Paulson, known for his work with Beck, Wilco, and Slint. The album was recorded at Steve Albini’s home studio and marked the first release through Merge Records.

The label was founded by Superchunk members Laura Ballance and Mac McCaughan in 1989. Despite Ballance and McCaughan’s breakup during its production, Foolish became one of Merge Records’ best-selling early releases.

Superchunk – ‘The First Part’

The tour promises to feature many of Superchunk’s classic songs from Foolish, including “Water Wings,” “The First Part,” and “Driveway to Driveway,” along with hits and deep cuts from their entire career.

The tour kicks off on Saturday, 7 December, at The Brightside in Brisbane. It continues to Adelaide’s Lion Arts Factory on Sunday, 8 December, The Rosemount in Perth on Tuesday, 10 December, Sydney’s Crowbar on Friday, 13 December, and concludes at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel on Saturday, 14 December.

Tickets go on sale at 9 am local time on Thursday, 6 June, via the Troubadour Presents website.
