Grinspoon To Tour Debut Album For 20th Anniversary

Touring based purely around a classic album is so hot right now.

Jebediah did it with Slightly Odway and, it sounds weird to say this but, Spiderbait are still on the road with Ivy And The Big Apples.

And now, another Aussie 90s essential has joined the party.

Gird your loins, because Grinspoon are taking their classic debut LP, Guide To Better Living, around the country, playing it from start to finish.


They’re also reissuing a 49-track, deluxe version of the record, full of rarities, live tracks and recordings you’ve probably never heard before.

ALSO, for the first time, the Grinners are releasing the Guide in vinyl. Not just any vinyl, but RED VINYL.



The original album reached platinum and generated five singles, ‘Pedestrian’, ‘DC×3’, ‘Repeat’, ‘Just Ace’ and ‘Don't Go Away’.

At the time, ‘Just Ace’ and ‘DCx3’ both cracked the top 50 on the ARIA charts.

Tracklist, Grinspoon’s Guide To Better Living

"Pressure Tested 1984" 







"Just Ace"

"Post Enebriated Anxiety"



"Don't Go Away"
