Brisbane hip-hop outfit Butterfingers are set to hit the road next year, celebrating the 15th anniversary of their iconic debut record.

Back in May of 2004, the world of Aussie hip-hop was turned upside down when Butterfingers released Breakfast At Fatboys, a 13-track effort that blended elements of hip-hop, rock, and punk with the band’s witty lyrics.

Bolstered by singles such as ‘Everytime’, ‘I Love Work’, and the triple j favourite ‘Yo Mama’, the record was a huge success, scoring plenty of airplay and even earning an ARIA Award nomination.

Now, 15 years later, Butterfingers are set to celebrate the anniversary of their amazing debut, with a national tour and a vinyl reissue.

Kicking off at the start of March, Butterfingers’ 15 Years Of Fatboys tour will see the band perform in Noosa moving through to the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Wollongong, Newcastle, Sydney, Adelaide, Frankston, Geelong, Belgrave, Dunsborough, Perth, Hillarys, Melbourne, Hobart, Townsville, Airlie Beach, Toowoomba, Ipswich, and wrapping up at The Northern in Byron Bay on April 26th.

“We’re super stoked to be hitting the road for the anniversary tour of Breakfast At Fatboys, and can’t believe it’s been 15 years,” explained frontman Evil Eddie. “It’s a good long list of shows, and there’s going to be songs in the set we haven’t played live since the original album tour in 2004.”

Supporting the group on all of these shows will be none other than Fresh Violet, who will be helping the group turn this into a pretty special affair, with some special moments taking place throughout the tour.

“Playing some of those old tunes that we haven’t touched for so long is the obvious one but there’s a specific track with the classy title of ‘Piss On Ya’ that always gets requested at shows but since it features a female emcee who isn’t a regular member of the band, we’ve hardly ever performed it live,” Evil Eddie continues.

“Fortunately we are taking a female emcee from Melb known as Fresh Violet on the road with us and I’m hoping we can twist her arm to make a cameo on the track.”

This anniversary tour will also see the band reissuing Breakfast At Fatboys on limited edition orange vinyl. Pre-orders for this special release are available now.
