Bio

Balancing the musical scales with a lethal combination of hard rock riffery and acoustic songs, AT is as honest a band as you will find. Energetic four-piece AT have built a rock solid foundation from which to take the world by storm. With two EP’s and self-produced debut album under their belts they are making a big noise with their live shows and growing fan base. The Band Andrew Thomas (Lead Vocals / Guitar) Ben Vawdrey (Guitar / Vocals) Pete Turner (Drums / Vocals) Barn Gickel (Bass) Like a fast approaching storm AT unleash their guitar riffs with an intensity and sound that is new and fresh but also influenced by bands of old. The fluid playing of bassist Barn Gickel combined with the powerhouse drumming of Pete Turner also make for an unparalled rhythm section. Says Brisbane’s Rave Magazine stalwart Bill Holdsworth, ”… there’s a more classic rock mould in this band’s sound too, encapsulating some of the guitar-god bands of the ‘80s but stretching back to the ‘70s as well so if you like a band that’s firmly anchored in rock’s heritage but updates it with plenty of chug and swagger, this is where it’s, er, at.” AT Band Album Review Quote "AT have released that certain type of disc that on first listening grabs your senses and demands attention… it is just what we need at this moment; it's innovative, fresh and well up there with the best of any chart band's efforts… AT deserve far greater exposure, both within Australia and outside, as this is a band with a 'sound', tight musicianship and great production. Bands like this normally don't just appear; this band appears to be the exception to the rule."
