About Veruca Salt
Veruca Salt's signature hit Seether remains one of the most-loved rock tunes of the ’90s. Not surprisingly, the band experienced a meteoric rise, doing everything a young band coming of age in the grunge era could hope for – selling more than a million records, touring with alt-rock royalty Hole and PJ Harvey, and winning critical acclaim for albums like American Thighs (named after an AC/DC lyric). After breaking up in 1998, the original line-up – Nina Gordon, Louise Post, Jim Shapiro and Steve Lack – re-formed in 2013 and were warmly welcomed back on stage. In 2015 they released their fifth studio album, Ghost Notes, the first to feature the band’s original line-up since 1997’s Eight Arms To Hold You. This will be their first a day on the green tour.
About A Day On The Green
14 February: Prepare for iconic indie rock anthems in the great outdoors when THE LIVING END, SPIDERBAIT, VERUCA SALT, THE LEMONHEADS, TUMBLEWEED and THE FAUVES combine for an almighty a day on the green national tour next February/March.
It’s a bill bursting with bands who were part of the alternative heyday of the 1990s, a period that has left a remarkable legacy on Australian music fans and continues to be held with muchos affection.
