The Grinners are back: Phil Jamieson, Joe Hansen, Pat Davern and Kristian Hopes of Grinspoon arrive on the red carpet at the ARIA Awards in 2007.

It's been 20 years since Grinspoon launched their debut album 'Guide to Better Living' and to celebrate, they'll be touring around the country. Don't you feel old now?

The Aussie band have reunited after a four year hiatus where they took the time to focus on other stuff, like doing the school drop off and building a house.

"Being a dad, a few solo shows, just did the musical in Brisbane, built a house, picking tiles, turning 40, being an adult. It happens to everyone," frontman Phil Jamieson told News Corp.

The four musicians met at a pub jam in Lismore and were catapulted into the Aussie music scene when they won Triple J's Unearthed competition in 1995. Recently, Jamieson was part of the Greenday musical American Idiot in Queensland.

The huge anniversary edition of 1997's 'Guide to Better Living' will be out on June 27, which is also the date the national tour kicks off. Tickets on sale from 9am, Monday 10th April. Tour dates are below.
