The feel good story of 2014, Sunnyboys, announce a summer tour and the deluxe reissue of albums 2 & 3: INDIVIDUALS and GET SOME FUN.

The March 2015 tour will include shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide plus the already announced slot at Perth International Arts Festival. Brisbane and Sydney fans will also be ecstatic to learn that in their respective towns Sunnyboys will be joined by the legendary Riptides.

In the post-punk gloom of 1980-1982, the all-too-rare double-bill of Sunnyboys and Riptides became the stuff of legend, the best party in town. And, though, the initial life-span of the Riptides lasted just five years (1978 - 1983) their live legacy and tracks like '77 Sunset Strip, Tomorrows Tears, Riptide, Shake It and Only Time have remained and the band have reformed sporadically over the years, the last time being 2006 for Brisbane's Pig City festival which also featured the original Saints. More recently frontman Mark Callaghan has overseen the mixing of the Riptides debut album TOMBS OF GOLD, recorded in 1982 but mixed just this year - what took them so long! The 2015 tour will also feature The New Christs, Adelaide punks Bad // Dreems and Dom Mariani's post-Stems vehicle DM3.

Both Sunnyboys albums meanwhile, are to be re-packaged and remastered with a bevy of bonus tracks - INDIVIDUALS in particular having a major overhaul with 8 of the original tracks stripped from the album completely and replaced by 8 alternative mixes found recently in the archives of album producer Lobby Lloyde. GET SOME FUN will comprise the complete album recording sessions (including 4 non-album tracks) while both albums will be rounded out by live material, GSF including a performance taken from the infamous Narara Music Festival held on a farm in rural NSW in 1984. Even the mud and damp of the day can't impact on the energy of the Sunnyboys in this fantastic live performance.

Tickets for SUNNYBOYS - IT'S A SUNNY DAY TOUR are to go on sale Friday 5th December (except where noted). Both INDIVIDUALS and GET SOME FUN and are to be released in early 2015.
