Bio

Psychedelic Reggae Ska Doom Metal Punk Rock From Hell.

The Bennies stormed into 2014 with their epic 'Knights Forever' tour, which was their biggest, wildest, loudest and most successful tour to date, followed up in June with 4 huge Queens Birthday weekend shows on the East Coast. Add to that their first ever tour of NZ, a coveted slot on the Soundwave line-up and a second tour of China in less than a year, and it becomes glaringly obviously that The Bennies are on fire.

The quartet also recently recorded an inspired cover of 'Bankrobber' by The Clash, to raise funds for beloved Melbourne alternative bookstore Polyester Books.

On the slate for the remainder of 2014 is a 17 date Australian headline tour with Morning Glory (NYC - Fat Wreck Chords), an Australian tour supporting Dead Kennedys, writing and recording a new album, more international touring (including a slot at The Fest in Gainsville, Florida, USA), festival dates and tons of partying. Typical Bennies stuff.

The Bennies are the biggest party demigods going around but what's even better is that they make you feel like you're partying with them in every tune.
