to all who came and celebrated our EP launch with us at Crowbar. The night was killer!
You can get CDs and Merch from the night on our bandcamp page and also preview all 4 tracks.
We will also have some big news regarding a national tour that we’re throwing together for July. Stay Tuned.
We’ve been doing shows around Brissy for a few months now but the problem is, unless you’ve actually been to one, no one really knows what we sound like. To remedy this we went into the studio with Jeff Lovejoy (Powderfinger, Tex Perkins) and made a CD (remember those?) last month. We’ve got the shiny new masters in our hands and we’ll be launching the EP in BRISBANE on APRIL 26 at Brisbane’s premier rock n roll venue, Crowbar. Support comes from Dead Wolves, The Wrath and The Mercy Beat.
The Given Things – 11.15pm – Midnight
The Wrath – 10.15pm – 11pm
The Mercy Beat – 9.15pm – 10pm
Dead Wolves – 8.30pm – 9pm
Doors at 8pm
We’re a rock band from Brisbane. Clint Boge sings, Glenn Esmond and Nathan Moore play guitars, Steve Pope plays drums and Brenton Page plays bass.
We’ve all been in and out of bands for a while. Somewhere along this journey, some of the music we were involved in had become not quite as fun as what it once was. Maybe when you become more concerned about which radio station will play your ‘genre’ or whether you get to the chorus of a song within the first 30 seconds, there’s a chance that you’ve begun to miss the point. With The Butterfly Effect in a state of flux in the wake of Clint’s departure and both Thousand Needles In Red and A Family Of Strangers at the end of their respective release and tour schedules, the circumstances had conspired to have us all be simultaneously asking, ‘what now?’
The answer arose at the hands of ex-Kate Miller-Heidke bassist and A Family Of Strangers guitarist Nathan Moore, who just happened to have a swag of sexy, sleazy bluesy riffs lying around doing nothing on his hard drive. The timing and opportunity being too serendipitous to ignore, the ensuing months had us bashing those riffs into a bunch of rocking, rollicking songs with big riffs and big vocals. Queen meets Queens of the Stone Age if you will. Comparisons have also been drawn with Alice in Chains and Clutch.
We recorded our debut EP with Jeff Lovejoy (Powderfinger, Tex Perkins) earlier this year and released it to a sold out Crowbar crowd in April. A national tour will follow in July.
