Reunited Pop-Punk Band Short Stack Are Officially Touring Australia In 2020
While Shaun Diviney, Andy Clemmensen and Bradie Webb have all been enjoying normal lives since they were last seen in 2015, it seems like the chance to play 'Sway, Sway Baby!' and 'Planets' in front of adoring fans was too good to pass up.
The trio will be heading all over Australia for a tour that should see plenty of fans digging around in their closets for their eyeliner and emo finery.
Lead singer Shaun Diviney said about the set of performances: "I don't think we've ever been more excited for a tour. The early response has blown us away and we can't wait to see everyone in July!"
Short Stack will be hitting Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth in July.
- Brisbane - The Triffid, Thursday 2 July
- Melbourne - 170 Russell, Friday 3 July
- Sydney - Metro Theatre, Saturday 4 July
- Adelaide - The Gov, Friday 10 July
- Perth - Astor Theatre, Saturday 11 July
Sadly for Short Stackers in Melbourne under the age of 18, you'll not be able to attend as it's strictly adults only.
Many have been expecting a tour announcement after Frontier Touring, the company organising the performances, placed a countdown on its website to today. Eagle-eyed fans on social media also saw that the band's website is teasing a song called 'Sandy', which will drop in March.
Diviney told the Daily Telegraph that he and bandmates Andy (bass, backing vocals) and Bradie (drums, keyboards) have been floored by all the comments.
"We didn't expect the response, that's for sure - it's humbling," Diviney said. "It's really cool to be getting the band back together.
Me: its just a phase

"We did LA for a bit and the UK but there's not much surf in London. We're a bunch of bogans at heart.
"When they got back together I was blown away. If we can do that for some people... I certainly know the feeling. We didn't anticipate we would get this big a response to something we created in a garage in Budgewoi."
So you've got a couple of months to re-learn all the lyrics to all their songs and then rock out at the various concert halls across the country.
