The alternative cult heroes have put together three-show East Coast tour, supported in Melbourne and Sydney by fellow ‘90s electro-rockers Insurge.

Gen-Xers are certain to have fond memories of the band’s witchy, trippy sound, which melded early electronica and alternative rock, and featured the vocals and other assorted charms of Fiona Horne.

The Sydney outfit were mainstays throughout the ‘90s, supporting Metallica, Pink Floyd and The Prodigy and popping up on seemingly every festival of the decade, including four consecutive Big Day Outs.

Now the band are back, led by original members Horne and bass player Martyn Basha. They’ll be joined by Clan Analogue co-founder Ant Banister and guitarist Wiley Cochrane.

Tickets go on sale at 9am on Wednesday February 15 from OzTix.
