Mudhoney are coming to Torquay and Castlemaine as part of 2023 Australian tour


Seattle’s Mudhoney are making a return to Australia in 2023.

Seminal Seattle four-piece Mudhoney return to Australia in 2023, marking nine years since their last local shows in 2014.

A mammoth odyssey spanning April and May will see them playing headline shows across six states, with a handful of festival dates among them. Locally they’ll perform at the Theatre Royal in Castlemaine on April 28 and the Torquay Hotel on April 29.

Keep up with the latest music news, festivals, interviews and reviews here.

Formed in 1988 following the demise of Mark Arm and Steve Turner’s former band, Green River, Mudhoney have created an enviable career spanning over three decades, thirteen studio albums, five live records, and endless headline shows around the globe. Their provocative debut single ‘Touch Me I’m Sick’ and 1992 hit ‘Suck You Dry’ cemented them as pioneers of the late 80’s early 90’s grunge explosion, with their sound an instrumental foundation of the era.

The band have managed to find time to lay down tracks in the studio this year for their next opus due in 2023, which follows their 2019 EP “Morning in America” (“this is wilder, punkier and even funnier than last time around” – Clash), giving Australian fans the opportunity to hear all of the new and a bunch of the former favourites live.

Year after year, Mudhoney delivers contrarian, politically charged, anti-sentimental musings with their signature skuzz-rock rebellious, underground sound to wake you up, punch you in the gut and put a smile on your face with equal measure.
