It took a musical adventure spanning four continents for Grinspoon to find the key to shaking up the Australian rock scene. With all four band members Joe Hansen, Pat Davern, Phil Jamieson and Kristian Hopes set out on a quest to find rock’s holy grail, which eventually led them home to make the best album of their fourteen-year career, cementing their position at the helm of the local rock scene.

Grinspoon’s star arose fast after claiming triple J’s inaugural Unearthed competition in 1995. Two EPs paved the way for their for their double-Platinum 1997 smash-hit debut, Guide to Better Living. Two years on came the Platinum-selling Easy, and in 2002 their Top 2 album New Detention garned four ARIA Award nominations for the band and their production team. An ARIA was in their grasp soon after, with 2004’s Top 5 Thrills, Kills & Sunday Pills picking up Rock Album of the Year. And doing what they do best, the band’s live show has conquered stages across the country including multiple Big Day Out tours and Splendour In the Grass shows!

The band’s sixth and latest album Six To Midnight only reinforces their status as the premier rock act in the country. This is the album recorded live, for the first time in a decade. The result is a tight, frenetic and tense rock album, brimming with energy and buoyant enthusiasm.

From Canada to Spain, Amsterdam and Singapore, Six To Midnight now finds a home in Australia on Grinspoon’s new imprint, Chk Chk Boom records. It’s an exciting new era for a band whose endurance is as much to do with their immense talent as their sheer determination. What better way to bring the New Year on rocking out with Grinspoon and special guests Snakes and Daggers and the Redcoats! Twin Towns NYE – Sunday December 31.
