Bio

Getting straight to the point, Brisbane’s Faux Bandit come out loud, hard and ferocious with their onslaught of speaker melting, unbridled rage.

Since their debut EP was released in 2015, Faux Bandit have consistently composed gritty, raw and tight rock that has been perpetually praised and approved by representatives throughout various corners of the music media.

They then went on to release their second EP, 'Flex' at the beginning of 2017 where they later supported the likes of Strangers, Interim and PLTS.

In their sinister fashion, these bandits continued with their polemic blasts on various touchy subjects, themes and social behaviours. This attitude has shone through in their previous singles ‘Kill The Comedown Bug’ off their sophomore EP (released January 2017), later followed by the single ‘Every Man Is A Pyramid Scheme’ (released November 2017).

May 2018 saw the release of their new single ‘Lyrebird Lungs’ — recorded by Yanto Browning at Airlock Studios — that grooves throughout the punchy, percussive lyrics in the verses into the heavy outbursts in the choruses and concludes in an erupting rampage. The single paired with an aggressive, fight club-esque music video - view here

To close out 2018, Faux Bandit supported one of the biggest names in Australian rock, Andrew Stockdale (Wolfmother).

For 2019, these bandits are introducing a new member to their group, releasing a new EP and heading on an Australian tour.
