Brace yourselves for a seismic collision of funk and metal as legendary supergroup Infectious Grooves, play their first shows in 5 years in an exclusive Easter tour.
Boasting an all-star lineup of incredible players, Infectious Grooves are set to unleash an insane performance that will be their first trip in Australia since playing at Soundwave Festival in 2008, 16 long years ago!
The 2024 incarnation of Infectious Grooves is more potent than ever. Featuring original members, Suicidal Tendencies frontman, Mike Muir, and guitarist Dean Pleasants who are both fresh from a sold-out tour of Australia last November that celebrated the 40th Anniversary of ST's debut album.
They will be accompanied by none other than founding bassist of Infectious Grooves, Robert Trujillo who is making a long-awaited comeback to Australia. Trujillo's last visit was over a decade ago with his warlord bandmates in on of the biggest bands on the planet—Metallica!
Adding extra groove on guitar will be Dave Kushner, best known for being part of the platinum selling supergroup Velvet Revolver. Dave is also part of the OG Infectious Grooves team having appeared on the track, Punk It Up from the bands debut album.
Anchoring the whole thing down is drummer Jay Weinberg, making his first live appearance after 10 years with the iconic metal band, Slipknot.
