Australian fans could be the first in the world to hear new Infectious Grooves music played live, with the funk-metal band set to perform at Bluesfest and a run of headline sideshows.

Trujillo said about the upcoming Australian tour dates – which you can find below, “I’m super stoked to venture back to Australia and reconnect with my Aussie surf contingent, as well as celebrate 30 years of Infectious Grooves with a few gigs down under!”

Muir added, “Infectious Grooves is gonna bring a super special extra Funk and Punk and everything in between raging gigs to Australia. These shows are short notice, but we guarantee they are gonna be full of ass-kicking, toe-tapping, bass-slapping, drum attacking, and high-octane roller-coaster grooves!”

Weinberg, marking his first live appearances after ten years with Slipknot, concluded: “It’s an absolute honour to play with the legendary Infectious Grooves on this incredibly exciting Australian tour! Playing with some of my favourite musicians in one of the most beautiful countries, for some of the greatest fans of heavy music in the world… I couldn’t be more thrilled to get started. See you all soon!”
