After a ten-year hiatus from the recording studio, Australia’s favourite musical misfits are back with an explosive new single Big Night Out, propelling them back into the Australian consciousness with fresh zest and their greatest tunes to date.
Since their inception in 2002, the Aria nominated group have proven to be one of Australia’s most successful independent acts and great live performers, having released all their own material on their own label and performing at major festivals around the country.
From early in their career they built a reputation on their energetic and eclectic live shows that crossed genres and blurred boundaries drawing from Hip Hop, Punk, Reggae, Drum & Bass, Stoner Rock, Electronica into a cohesive mash-up all of their own creation.
From potty-mouthed gutter rhymes to heartfelt crooning odes to love lost, Butterfingers have a long streak of Triple J Hottest 100 entries, industry awards & nominations to solidify themselves as a household name.
Even through their extended hiatus, Butterfingers continue to gain passionate new followers at an exponential rate.
During this recent break, band leader and front man ‘Evil’ Eddie Jacobson took time out to release a solo album under the ‘Evil Eddie’ moniker with standout track ‘Queensland’ also charting in the Triple J Hottest 100.
2017 looks to be the year that propels Butterfingers back into the Australian consciousness with fresh zest and their greatest material to date.
Butterfingers play the Tanks Arts Centre on Saturday the 9th of September 2017. Tickets available through Ticketlink
