Bio

FANGZ is a Sydney-based four-piece punk rock band that write songs with the sole purpose of getting people to party and attempt backflips in mosh pits. The band started their journey with a four-week sold out residency in Sydney’s inner-west, with lines of punters spilling out onto the street trying to get into the venue.

The lads went on to release their debut EP ‘For Nothing’ in July 2019. The EP was met with critical acclaim with support via triple j, Spotify and local media. From there, the party punks hit the road and didn’t stop. Their first tour saw them sell out the Chippendale Hotel along with many other capacity rooms.

FANGZ then found themselves joining childhood heroes Gyroscope on a national tour followed by an East Coast run with local riff lords Bare Bones. To top the year off FANGZ landed support slots with two of their biggest influences in Cancer Bats and Comeback Kid. The band also had multiple tours confirmed (including a run of Japan), however due to COVID-19, all live plans were put on hold.

FANGZ 2nd EP ‘But No Thanks’ was released on July 17th 2020 - produced by Stevie Knight (Yours Truly, Stand Atlantic, The Dead Love), and mixed by James Paul Wisner (Hands Like Houses, Underoath). ‘But No Thanks’ was also widely embraced by the likes of triple j, triple j Unearthed, Spotify, Apple Music, Pilerats, Blunt Magazine, Wall of Sound, Hysteria Magazine, Music Feeds, The Music, AAA Backstage and The Soundcheck.

In October, the band announced their own line of hot sauce ‘Fang us Some Sauce’ and a headlining show to launch it. The 250-capacity show sold out within weeks with little promotion, marking the most number of tickets moved by the group during their career, all without a new release and amid a global pandemic.

If this song was reincarnated as an animal, it would be a wasp - soaring, lethal and furiously out for blood.

RIFF CITY BABY! I'm gonna stop drinking coffee, and just blast this song first thing in the morning. Pure adrenaline from start to finish.

A band that doesn't know how to make songs that don't kick arse. Fury and high octane hooks.
