Bio

Drawcard [as spoken in the voice of David Attenborough]
ˈdrɔːkɑːd/
noun informal

1. Teetering on the fringe of reality and madness; here, we find tasty melodies, killer riffs, catchy choruses, thought provoking lyrics, and crazy gyrating bodies thrown across the stage.

2. These creatures, thought to have emerged from the beachside suburbs of the Sunshine Coast a number of years ago, have since shared the stage with the likes of Taking Back Sunday, Dead Kennedys, BAM Margera,The Bennies, Unwritten Law, Grinspoon, Birds of Tokyo, Parkway Drive, Dead Letter Circus and the list goes on!

3. ·Their latest release ‘Goons LTD’ reached No.6 on iTunes rock charts alongside Foo Fighters, ACDC, INXS,The Amity Affliction.

4. Nominated for two Queensland Music Awards for ‘Best Heavy’ and Best Regional Ar tist’ in 2015.

5. Two singles off their sophomore 5 track EP debuted at No.4 and No.5 in the AMRAP Australian Independent Music Charts and remained in the Top 10 for 3 weeks alongside artists including Children Collide,The Temper Trap and Hilltop Hoods.

6. Their debut album was mixed by Sylvia Massy (TOOL, Red Hot Chili Peppers, COG) in California and is distributed nationally in the U.S. and Canada with SONY Red.

7. A sheer knack for writing catchy melody laden post punk rock anthems, and delivering explosive live shows has earned the band main stage appearances on sold out festivals incl.Taste of Chaos, Big Pineapple Music Festival (3 years in a row),Tour of Destruction, Golden Days Festival.

I'm a fan. Hallmarks of mid-2000s punk and emo but in a harder casing. Keep it coming.
