Regurgitator reveal dates for their 25th anniversary tour.
After 25 years of being consumed, Regurgitator have decided to raise a rather large glass to their silver jubilee with a 'Quarter Pounder' 25th anniversary Australian tour this October and November.
Emerging from the independent undercurrent of Brisbane’s '90s music scene, the past two and a half decades have witnessed Regurgitator's ceaseless re-inventive spirit on display, the band playing with form and flux as well as with self-parody.
Regurgitator is a befitting moniker to depict the assembled mass of styles, sounds and attitudes, fuelled by a geekish nature and an unmitigated irony. They bring forward an irreverent take on themselves, culture and social behaviour on a tour that will see them pound 21 stages.
Formed by Quan Yeomans (lead vocals, guitar and keyboards), Ben Ely (bass guitar, keyboards and vocals) and Martin Lee (drums - Lee was later replaced by Peter Kostic) Regurgitator's debut studio album, 'Tu-Plang', was released in 1996 and was followed by 'Unit' in 1997, which was certified triple platinum. 2018 saw the release of the band's ninth album, 'HEADROXX'.

Here's a snapshot of what Regurgitator have done... so far:
Maybe 11 ALBUMS or so if you count the live, Jingles compilation and latest kids releases; EPs surely must be 7 of these at least... and in their time maybe 16 singles, a few 7inches and 5 or so DVD releases. And MUSIC VIDEOS feels like maybe 47 or so of those...
SHIRTS jeez, must have been close to 120 or so designs spread across... approximately 905 PERFORMANCES or thereabouts including maybe 25 national headline tours, 6 Big Day Out tours, so many festivals you could poke a stick at...
Along with some great times playing with DEVO, Boredoms, The Prodigy, TISM, Audio Active, CIV, The Mint Chicks, Ratatat, Senyawa, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Helmet, The Melvins and more including the odd collaborative excursions into theatre, dance, live soundtracks and generally just bent on allowing an unstable ingenuity...
And on that note who could forget 21 days inside a glass BUBBLE!
