80’s rock legends Noiseworks are back after 30 years with the original members, in honour of their guitarist Stuart “Chet” Fraser who passed away in 2019, and are bringing their long-awaited ‘Take Me Back Tour’ to Australian audiences in 2022 – and it all kicks off tonight!
In tribute to Chet, Jack Jones (former Southern Sons front-man) has joined the band on their national ‘Take Me Back Tour’, playing their classic hits including Touch, No Lies, Hot Chilli Woman and of course Take Me Back. This tour comes hot off the heels of their Number 1 charting hit Heart & Soul that was released on August 15th, 2022 as the lead single from their new studio album (album out October 2022). The single comes as a long awaited gift to Noiseworks fans who have been thirsting for new music from the iconic rockers for 30 years.
Heart & Soul offers all of the cornerstone Noiseworks trademarks with powerful vocals from frontman Jon Stevens, skillful guitar from enigmatic rocker Steve Balbi on bass, the prolific Justin Stanley on keyboards, and the mighty Kev Nicol setting the tempo on drums.
Joining Noiseworks on this release and subsequent tour is highly acclaimed Australian musician Jack Jones (Irwin Thomas). Jones is honouring original Noiseworks member, the late, great Stuart ‘Chet’ Fraser, by taking up the mantle of lead guitarist in the band.
“Coming back after 30 years with new music and seeing the level of excitement that we have had from our Noiseworks fans has been a really powerful experience for us. Heart & Soul shows where we are now while also giving a nod to the sounds that make us Noiseworks.” Jon Stevens – Noiseworks Singer.
