After releasing their first album in 16 years during late 2015, much-loved Australian alternative-pop outfit Custard are finally making their way to Adelaide, coming to The Gov on Friday, 22 April.

The fittingly-titled Come Back, All Is Forgiven, features the classic lineup of frontman David McCormack, drummer Glenn Thompson, bass player Paul Medew and guitarist Matthew Strong, the album was recorded over a weekend in Thompson’s studio and features 11 new songs – their first new material since 1999’s Loverama.

Having formed in Brisbane in 1990, Custard released five albums over the following decade (Buttercup/Bedford, Wahooti Fandango, Wisenheimer, We Have the Technology and Loverama). Combining the intelligent pop of Devo and Pavement with the humour of Violent Femmes or Ween, the band developed a cult following, playing countless shows around the country and touring overseas. They produced a parade of memorable singles, several of which became entrenched in Australian pop music history. ‘Apartment’ polled higher than any other local artist in triple j’s Hottest 100 in 1995, with ‘Girls Like That (Don’t Go For Guys Like Us)’ coming in at #3 in the 1998 vote, before the group disbanded in 1999.

Custard will be playing songs from Come Back, All Is Forgiven alongside hits and fan favourites including ‘Apartment’, ‘Anatomically Correct’ and ‘Girls Like That’.
