The Offspring announce Australian tour with Sum 41

By On

Australian shores are set to play host to a punk rock onslaught, the likes of which are rarely seen in our corner of the globe with the genre-defining The Offspring announcing a run of headline dates, bringing with them the equally as genre-defining Sum 41.

It’s been quite a gap between drinks for Australian fans of The Offspring. The below tour dates mark the first of their kind from the group in 16 years. The habitual trouble makers kept their Australian love affair alive with the odd festival slot including performances at Warped Tour Australia in 2013 and again at the inaugural 2018 Good Things festival. However, the last time they were in town in a headline capacity was off the back of their 2003 record, Splinter. They’ve since released Rise And Fall, Rage And Grace and Days Go By so, naturally, we have a lot to catch up on.

An incredibly rare Sum 41 has also been spotted on the line up, yet another group that will be returning to their Australian fans for the first time in a while not associated with a festival. The band took to the stages of Download Festival past, taking the time to perform an incredibly sweaty club show at Sydney’s the Bald Faced Stag, damn near bringing down the house. It’s safe to say both rapid-paced performances whet fans’ appetites for a more Sum-centric set. Now we’re salivating for one, goddammit. Salivating.

This will be the perfect opportunity for the band to introduce their Australian legion of fans to their latest record, 2019’s Order In Decline.
