The Screaming Jets Celebrate 25 Years Of Aussie Rock’n’Roll Mayhem

admin Interviews


The national tour for The Screaming Jets is going to be something very special, for fans and the band alike. The iconic rock band, originally from Newcastle, will be celebrating 25 years – yes, a quarter of a century – of great Aussie rock.

25 years seems like a hell of a long time to stick at one job, but when your job is to rock out as much as you can – it can feel like it’s flying by in the blink of an eye.

With 6 studio albums under their belt, and literally thousands of gigs throughout the world from one horse towns to global meccas, the Jets have been there and done that….when it comes to this crazy rock n roll circus.

To celebrate this massive milestone The Screaming Jets are heading back on the road to celebrate with all their fans and friends round this big brown rocking land.

Lead singer Dave Gleeson says this is a pretty massive milestone for the band whose humble beginnings started winning a Battle of the Bands competition.

“As a young guy in a band, I think it was always a goal to be around for as long as you possibly could,” he says.


“I mean, there were – and probably still are – cover bands that were around for 10 or 20 years in Newcastle, so I remember being stoked when our first band Aspect reached its three year mark. We released a cassette called Vengeance 303. Three years and 300 gigs, we were pretty proud. To reach the quarter of a century mark is obviously awesome. Sadly, things haven’t always gone to plan and we have lost a few comrades along the way.”

The Screaming Jets are bringing the best of the best to audiences around the country.
