Bio

Forming in Adelaide many moons ago, they established themselves as one of the city’s favourite dark pop/rock’n’roll bands, hailed as ‘the rock’n’roll sound track to a Tim Burton Film’-Rip it up. 2010 saw them release their debut album to a packed house and critical acclaim, receiving interstate supports from ‘The Vasco Era’, ‘John Steel singers’, ‘Me’ and ‘The Chemist’. Seeking a new challenge, the band made the move to Melbourne in mid-2011, where they picked up some new members and a darker, more sinister sound. The release of ’Ouija’ EP Dec 2011 saw them continue to thrash about their limbs, unleashing their sounds into Melbourne’s dirtiest and dingiest drinking holes. The bands upcoming EP, “Only Human” (Release: May 18th, 2013) is self recorded, self produced and a gritty departure from the epic, theatrical sounds of the band’s debut album. The new Ep shows maturity musically and honesty lyrically as The Battery Kids grow up and delve into the personal realities of the trials of long-term relationships, continued partying and of course the inevitable hangover. The digital release of The Battery Kids new single ‘Fuck me like a stranger’ will be available for streaming on Soundcloud from April 5th in the lead up to the Ep launch of ‘Only Human’ May 18th at The Old Bar, VIC and June 15th at The Worldsend in SA.

damn, I thought all the other high scores were overstated until I got half way through and realised I'd been hit by a truck
