Bleached Academy are leading the way for the new generation of bands on the Australian Music Scene. Since forming, the Sydney 4 piece band have developed a unique blend of Alt. Pop/Rock that has to be heard to fully understand. Citing influences such as Paramore, Anberlin, Enter Shikari & My American Heart. Bleached Academy features vocal “powerhouse” Hayley Warner, whose breathtaking performances display her versatility in range & emotion, James Hill on Drums & Programming, Dom Cabusi on Guitars & Vocals and Jayson Robertson on Bass & Vocals. With an interesting mix of seamless melodies and blazing guitars, the band’s songs are driven by propulsive rhythms & loops, lashings of keyboards and truly anthem-like choruses. Whilst currently writing and putting the finishing touches on demo tracks, the band have also been performing some absolutely electric live shows around Sydney and are to be featured in an upcoming FOX 8 special on local Oz acts. Bleached Academy are relentless in their approach to live energy in a show, and certainly leave no stone unturned! Most recently April 2008 saw Bleached Academy make a clean sweep at the 20th Anniversary “YOUTHROCK 08” series at Sutherland Entertainment Centre with the band winning their heat outright and going on to take “1st Prize” in the finals following a truly inspiring set that left an audience stunned, so much so that the band were also presented with the “TYLERS RIOT” Award for there explosive performance. Within a matter of days, “Bleached Academy” then went on to win the Grand Final of “CANTERBURY CONQUERORS” Band Comp at Canterbury-Hurlstone Park RSL capping off a memorable month for the band. With the band about to head into the studio to commence writing for a future release and video, anything & everything is possible for Bleached Academy right now. One of the hottest up & coming Alt. Pop/Rock bands of 2008; “Bleached Academy's time is NOW!”
