Bio

Drastic Park is a 3-piece Punk Rock band from Melbourne, Australia. Drastic Park bring to the table a refreshing modern take on a nostalgic sound early 2000s. With a unique style comprised of droning open octave lines, thundering bass chords, technical yet heavy drum patterns and BIG raspy vocal hooks - they have managed to create a sound that many immediately identify as "the Drastic Park sound".

In their short time as a band they have recorded two EPs, received national radio play on all of their four singles and have played a plethora of sold out shows in Melbourne and Sydney - supporting the likes of Epitaph's DREGG and punk veterans Antiskeptic, For Amusement Only and Seraph's Coal.

With two Australian tours in 2021 under their belt, plus a string of sold out vinyl runs and an ever growing audience - Drastic Park are showing no signs of slowing down.

HYSTERIA MAGAZINE: "Drastic Park is a literal time machine back to the early-mid 2000s when pop punk was at its peak and we were all fantasising about what it’d be like to go to Warped Tour."

BLUNT MAGAZINE: "Drastic Park are wasting no time, strutting through the doors of the Australian alternative scene and right up to the bar, where they no doubt order a shot of something top shelf."

WALL OF SOUND: "Drastic Park are going places... honing in on that pop punk sound from the early 2000’s and giving it their own spin"
