Bio

Since forming in early 2012, Australian rock-trio Columbus have been playing earnest and relatable ballads to audiences worldwide. With their humble roots in high-school Jazz band, founding members Alex Moses (vocals, guitar) and Daniel Seymour (Drums) released their ground-breaking ‘Home Remedy EP’ in 2015, with lead single ‘Downsides of Being Honest’ grabbing hearts and radio play, launching the band through Triple J Unearthed and on to the stage at Soundwave Festival.
Columbus’ debut LP 'Spring Forever' peaked at 47 on the ARIA charts seeing them tour Australia with Birds Of Tokyo, The Ataris, You Me At Six & Trophy Eyes whilst also conquering festivals NYE On The Hill & UNIFY.

After capping off sold out Australian shows on their final 'Spring Forever' tour, their second LP 'A Hot Take On Heartbreak' was released with critical acclaim, scoring 9/10 via Depth Magazine and 10/10 via Hysteria Magazine. Hot on the heels of the release, Columbus headed out on the road with William Ryan Key of US giants Yellowcard before completing an Australia-wide headline run.

With Lauren Guerrera joining the band on Bass in 2019, Columbus returned with powerful single ‘Can’t Hide From What Hurts’ – an honest and hopeful call to keep pushing forward through the tough times. Receiving full rotation on Triple J and becoming one of the station’s most played tracks, Columbus toured the single around Australia with Young Lions, before smashing packed shows at UNIFY and Mountain Goat Valley Crawl festivals.

In the wake of their triumphant return Australia’s favourite east coast trio Columbus share an exceptional follow up – the gritty and driving new single ‘Out Of Time’, an honest realisation of worry and hope.

Catchy, driven and solid work right from the Columbus heart. These three know how to make you feel things. Great track guys.

'can't hide from what hurts' proved itself big time and this is a great follow up showing off exactly what columbus are capable of - catchy and passionate punk that leaves nothing in the tank come the final second.
