Reissued on ‘Black Friday’ 24th November 2017 – Preorder Now

2017 has been a momentous year for Grinspoon.

The band; Phil Jamieson, Pat Davern, Kristian Hopes and Joe Hansen, recently completed their 30+ date national 20 Years Of Better Living tour to sold out and riotous crowds celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their debut album ‘Guide To Better Living’.

That celebration saw the reissue of the double platinum album and propelled the recording to #8 on the ARIA chart in July 2017 – its highest chart placing ever.

Now, set for release on ‘Black Friday’ November 24thGrinspoon are proud to announce the re-issue of their very first EP; Grinspoon (known by fans as the ‘Green’ EP) from August 1995. This was the EP that began what has become – 22 years later, the long and continuing career of one of Australia’s most successful and hardest working rock bands.

After years of unavailability; the EP will be available (for the first time) on limited edition 12” 180gram GREEN VINYL alongside streaming and download – and is available to pre-order now from here.
