Bio

Bad/Love was conceived in mid 2019 out of a shared love of the eminent emotional rock groups of the early 00’s - the founding members set out to usher in a renaissance of the sound with a modern gloss and a sharpened edge. Today Bad/Love are one of the most exciting up and coming alternative acts that are leaving it all out there.

Fast forward to 2020, a lot of artists withdrew and hid. It's the year we all wished we could forget, however with a "nothing will stop us" attitude Bad/Love put their heads down and got to work. Before experiencing one of the longest COVID lockdowns in the world, Bad/Love snuck in a festival performance at UNIFY Gathering and (most of) a national tour with friends in The Brave as well as announcing their support on Dream On Dreamer's final ever tour. The band managed to release two massive hits, DMU & Social Suicide (ft Ken of Crossfaith) in 2020 which have taken the band to a new level. Bad/Love were recognised by QMusic's BIGSOUND as one of the 50 most exciting artists to watch out for in Australia as well as being crowned a Triple J Unearthed Feature Artist.

Bad/Love is Landon Kirk (Vocals), Lachlan Monty (Guitars), Zac Noble (Bass) & Alex Trail (Drums). No strangers to the international touring market, the band consists of past & present members of bands such as Make Them Suffer, Storm The Sky, Agnes Manners, Like Royals & more. Many years of sharing the stage as friends have afforded Bad/Love an electrical chemistry that bolsters their performance.

The band have now announced their sophomore EP 'Life Imitates Art' will be released worldwide on April 9th, 2021. The anticipated EP will feature singles 'DMU', 'Social Suicide' & upcoming single 'Feel Good'.

Bad/Love arrived at the studio choosing violence. This one goes for the jugular and snatches the spine for good measure.

bad/love are becoming experts at fusing the beastly, searing moments with soaring, melodic sounds as well. it's like a rare steak, perfectly paired with a red wine and some 24hr gravy or jus or something.

Ugh, you guys... this is IT. Please, I can only get so hype for these grand, dramatic emo numbers! You've got everything in the bag - the double claps, the cutaway moments where your harmonies shine, the choir at the end, the whispering - it's superb.
