Fresh off performing at Good Things Festival in Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane over the weekend, it seems that Kisschasy are no longer content not playing on Australian stages.

Today, the band announces their first hometown shows in over eight years. The alt-rock national treasures will reunite for a special one-off Australian headlining tour in May 2023, with vocalist Darren Cordeux visiting Australia after relocating to Los Angeles in 2015.  

The shows begin in Brisbane before heading to Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Wollongong, Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, and Torquay. 

Fans keen on scoring exclusive pre-sale tickets can sign up here - access opens this Thursday, 8 December, at 10 am local time. General public tickets go on sale next Tuesday, 13 December, at 10 am local time.

"We're really excited to breathe new life into these songs that we remain very proud of," Cordeux said. He added, "It's humbling that our fan base endures almost a decade after we hung up our instruments, and it's reminded us that we created something very special together; a body of work that has managed to stand the test of time. This tour is for those who still hold our songs dear and have been waiting since we closed that curtain in 2015. We can't wait to see you again."

Kisschasy formed on the Mornington Peninsula in 2002. The band just performed their debut album United Paper People, in full at Good Things Festival, an experience our own Madison Thomas called "overwhelming" in the best possible way. Read our festival review here.

Don't miss out on singing along to Do-Do's & Whoa-Oh's, Opinions Won’t Keep You Warm At Night, and Spray On Pants. Find all ticketing information here.
