Following on from their triumphant performance at the 2021 AFL Grand Final, iconic WA trio Eskimo Joe have announced the release of their greatest hits album, The World Repeats Itself Somehow – The Best Of Eskimo Joe. The band are also set to return to stages nationally next year.
The collection of songs will feature favourites from the bands six studio albums, including their monster hits Black Fingernails, Red Wine and Foreign Land. Spanning 23 years, the record will have songs from their debut EP Sweater, right up to their latest record, Ghost Of The Past, and showcase just why they've scored 35 ARIA nominations - a number only surpassed by Silverchair, Powderfinger, Kylie Minogue and John Farnham.
Kicking off in Perth on March 5 next year, the run of shows will continue on to Adelaide, Hobart, Melbourne, Thirroul and Sydney, before wrapping up in Brisbane on April 8. The new dates marks the bands first headline tour in four years, having embarked on a national tour in celebration of their 21st Anniversary, and supporting Jimmy Barnes on his tour the following year.
With over 750,000 and three ARIA number one records under their belt, Eskimo Joe made their return last year with their their first single in seven years, Say Something. "The song is about hope and what it means to be a humanitarian," the band shared at the time of release. "Whether we are talking about domestic violence, racism or the environment, to stay silent is to be complicit."
The World Repeats Itself Somehow – The Best Of Eskimo Joe is out December 10.
