Bio

Atticus Chimps are an Alternative Rock band from the Gold Coast, Australia. They’re heavily influenced by Punk, Grunge and Funk bands from the ‘90s and early ‘00s. Their sound can sway from calm and melodic love songs, to fast-paced heavy rock anthems that convey a message of dissatisfaction with authority and alienation from society.

The band consists of members Sam Bray (guitar & vocals), Theo D’ambrosia (bass) and Todd Pieszco (drums). Their sound at times is brash and unconventional, but still incorporates the rhythm and hooks necessary for pop music that can be received positively by a large demographic of people.

Atticus Chimps have supported astablished acts such as Butterfingers, The Chats, The Dead Love, Baltimore Gun Club, Horace Bones, Miniskirt, Birdhouse and Dollar Bill Murrays.

"The sunshine states best kept alt-rock secret" - Tiana Speter, The Soundcheck
"The best f*cking band I've heard in years" - Daimon Motbey, Crooked Teeth

Little gravel in the throat works a treat over these Blink 182-like guitar lines.
