Chris Masuak returns to Australia for national tour
Six years after his last visit to Australia, former Radio Birdman guitarist Chris “Klondike” Masuak is returning with his hand-picked local band, Dog Soldier, for a select run of East Coast shows.
Masuak and Dog Soldier will play a three week tour with shows in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and the ACT.
Masuak’s musical history reads like a muscle car ride through the mean streets of Australia’s rock and roll underground.
The Canadian-born Masuak achieved notoriety as teenage guitarist for Australia’s legendary Radio Birdman, and then waged a War Against The Jive with the country’s hardest working rock and roll band, The Hitmen.
Next came a stint with the original live version of the New Christs, followed by international prominence with the chart-busting Screaming Tribesmen.
A member of the ARIA Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Masuak has an impressive back catalogue of rock, pop and blues releases under his own name and fronting the Viveiro Wave Riders. He is now based in Galicia in northern Spain.
Dog Soldier comprises bassist Tony Bambach (Aberration, Green Spiders, ex-Lime Spiders) and drummer Stu Wilson (Aberration, The Rivers, ex-New Christs).
Their tour will re-trace Klondike’s storied career, drawing on material from his key bands - with a few surprises thrown in.

CHRIS “KLONDIKE” MASUAK’S TOP SEVERAL FOR 2021
What’s another year without the obligatory screed from Klondike?
You know that my tongue is firmly in cheek but my heart unashamedly on sleeve when wishing you all as peaceful, calm, and rockin’ a Christmas as is possible to the human mind!
