Bio

FANGZ is a four-piece punk rock band that write songs with the sole purpose of getting people to party and attempt backflips in mosh pits.

FANGZ played their first live show just over a year ago and within a small amount of time the band have kicked some major goals. The band started with a four-week residency every Friday in Sydney’s inner-west that had a line up Enmore Rd as all four shows sold out.
The lads then went on to release their first EP ‘For Nothing’ in July 2019. The EP was met with critical acclaim with all four tracks off their debut getting a spin on Triple J, as well as three tracks being added to the Spotify Editorial playlists; ‘New Punk Tracks’ and ‘Punk Unleashed’. From there these party punks hit the road and didn’t stop. Their first tour saw them sell out the Chippendale Hotel along with many other full rooms.

FANGZ then found themselves joining childhood heroes Gyroscope on a national tour followed by an east coast tour 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 released their first single for 2020 ‘Falling Out’ in February to a warm reception receiving radio support from Triple J, 4ZZZ, The Faction and FBi. The single also saw the band’s first sold out national tour.

FANGZ released their second single for 2020 ‘Drifter’ in late March which to date has been their most successful release with spotify playlist adds to Rock Out., All Thing Post and radio support including rotation on Triple J Unearthed and being Amazing Radio’s plugged-in track of the week.
Next step was a national tour and their first international tour through Japan but unfortunately due to COVID - 19 the band had to cancel the 19-show run.

Never ones to lose momentum FANGZ adapted by creating the ‘Online Tour Thingy’ in which they streamed a set every Friday night in April. After finishing off their online “tour” FANGZ created a space they later named the ‘FANGZ bunker’.
Armed with iphones, minimal recording equipment, hand sanitiser, face masks and disinfectant, the band started to run a weekly show out of the bunker titled ‘14U14M3’ that premiered on Facebook every Tuesday. The show was a mixture of Wayne’s World and Jackass including the boys reviewing beer, chilli sauce and a weekly guest playing a song and being interviewed by the band. The show ran for 10 episodes and showcased 8 local bands including the likes of local legends The Dead Love, Down For Tomorrow and Grenade Jumper to name a few.

FANGZ 2nd EP ‘But No Thanks’ is set to be released July 17th, 2020 - produced by Stevie Knight (Yours Truly, Stand Atlantic, The Dead Love), and mixed by James Paul Wisner (Hands Like Houses, Underoath). The EP is fast-paced, raw and melodic with pop hooks. Think Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes, The Used, Fever 333 and a whole lot of beer and energy.

FANGZ are in overdrive. Drifter is chaotic and wild and the breakdown hits me with the wildness of a band like The Warriors.0

there's nothing drifter about it though, it's got this fearsome direction and is full steam ahead right towards you.
