Foo Fighter guitarist, podcast host, songwriter, and all around rock-and-roller Chris Shiflett, brings his alt-country and Americana-influenced new album Lost at Sea – out now via Blue Élan Records – to Melbourne and Sydney fans this December.
Punk veteran. Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee. Americana and rock songwriter. For more than 25 years, Chris Shiflett has blurred the lines between genre and generation, balancing his full-band projects with a thriving solo career. Named “Americana’s biggest rockstar” by Rolling Stone, Shiflett has played a crucial role in shaping the sound and scope of modern-day rock music as a longtime member of the Foo Fighters. He’s also an alum of California-based punk rock bands No Use For a Name and Me First and the Gimme Gimmes. Shiflett’s latest releases refocus his attention on a mix of country twang and rock & roll bang, showcasing the full range of his musical abilities.
“Touring Australia is always a blast and I’m excited it worked out to schedule these solo acoustic shows between the big ones. Better re-string my J200 and dust off my capo!! I’ll be playing some tunes from my new record, Lost at Sea, as well as my last couple records and a few covers. Might have to learn a couple Jackson United ones while I’m at it!”
