Iconic Perth indie rockers Jedediah are celebrating their 20th anniversary with a tour and a ‘Best Of’ album.
From May to June, the band will embark on a Metro City tour run and release a compilation album aptly titled Twenty.
The tour (tickets on sale from Tuesday March 24th here) will feature an array of special guest openers including Front End Loader, Fur, Red Jezabel, Turnstyle and Screamfeeder for each show – with some reforming just for the show!
Jedediah (led by singer-songwriter Kevin Mitchell aka Bob Evans) have continued to play festivals and special one off gigs throughout the years however, Twenty is the biggest tour the band has undertaken in some time and will be delivered in two halves: beloved classics and surprises first, then their ’97 debut and fan favourite, Slightly Odway, in its blissful, ballistic entirety.
The compilation album will include 20 tracks hand chosen by the band, spanning five releases from their 1997 album Slightly Odway (their first on Sony’s Murmur label), 1999’s Of Someday Shambles, 2002’s Jebediah, 2004’s Braxton Hicks and their most recent album release in Kosciuszko (2011).
