Bio

Having made music together for years, Brisbane duo Faux Bandit (with guitarist/vocalist Adam Brill and drummer Josh Johnstone) have honed in on their high adrenaline, blitzing rock sound.

As the band has developed, their focus has shifted to solid riffs and strong groove-based rock, creating a sonic amalgamation of obnoxious egocentricity and self-loathing cynicism.

Faux Bandit’s journey began with the release their debut EP ‘The Better You Look, The More You See’ in July 2015 that showcased their passionate energy and gusto filled with vigour, frustration and crippling sarcasm. Like all debut EP’s, it set up something for them to build off of, which is precisely what they did.

After the release of their sophomore EP ‘Flex’ in January 2017, Faux Bandit supported an array of touring acts of the likes of Strangers, Interim, PLTS and plenty more.

With big plans for an active 2018, Faux Bandit are closing the year out with the blitzing rock track ‘Every Man Is A Pyramid Scheme’ (Out November 10).

"Gritty, raw choruses and chunky riffs; it’s hard to believe this is the work of a two-piece." The Music

"A cocktail of raw vox and slinky riffs, hammered into a groove” Tone Deaf

"Loud, tight and technical alt-rock.” Music Director, 4zzz

"It all culminates in a thrashing, splashing barrage of rock."AAA Backstage
