Admittedly, I was 9 years old the year Grinspoon released their debut album, ‘Guide to Better Living’, so I can’t say with certainty where I was when I first heard it. What I do know is how much this band and their music shaped a better part of my teenage years, and now adult life.

Noting a strange sense of deja vu, Mixtape For The Drive are back for another supporting slot, albeit on a slightly confined stage. What they lack in stage size, they make up for with catchy pop-punk tunes that have, in the past, been likened to genre heroes, Blink-182.

You’re no stranger to Australian shores – what are you looking forward to most about coming back?
