Scottish five-piece Teenage Fanclub will return to Australia in March 2017 for their very first headline shows since 2005.
Widely recognised as masters of alternative rock/pop, the Scottish outfit will play two headline dates in Brisbane and Melbourne, with tickets on sale Friday 28th October.
While in the country they’ll also perform at the already announced Golden Plains festival, plus a Sydney date at Taronga Zoo.
Teenage Fanclub return following the release of their 10th studio album, ‘Here‘, out now on the band’s own PeMa label / Warner Music Australia.
Three decades of peerless songwriting and almost telepathic musicianship between founding members Norman Blake, Raymond McGinley and Gerard Love, plus drummer Francis MacDonald and keyboard player Dave McGowan, means ‘Here‘ more than makes up for a six-year wait for new music.

Formed in 1989, Teenage Fanclub famously broke through with their iconic third album ‘Bandwagonesque‘. That record beat out Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind‘ for SPIN’s ‘1991 Album Of The Year’ (they later toured with the grunge gods). Ever since, they’ve built a loyal audience with a steady release of music that’s solidified their position as songcraft royalty, including LPs such as ‘Grand Prix‘ (1995), ‘Songs From Northern Britain‘ (1997), ‘Howdy!‘ (2000), ‘Mad-Made‘ (2005), and 2010’s ‘Shadows‘.
Joining Teenage Fanclub at Brisbane and Sydney shows is Aussie three-piece The Goon Sax, who released their debut album ‘Up To Anything‘ earlier this year. The band just returned from their first international tour. While in the UK they performed for BBC Radio 6.
