Bio

Born in a garage of The Sunshine Coast, Fight Ibis throw down a unique feel, encompassing all genres from Psych/Indie/Garage to unhinged-swing and groove, striving to create an honest body of work that brighten the listeners day.


The band have had quite the introduction to the national scene, regularly popping up on industry radars with a steady release of punchy singles, making it 6 Triple J spins from 6 releases including a spot rotation for debut single 'Dorothy Deadleg'.

Since then Fight Ibis have dropped in on a bunch of festivals including The Big Pineapple Music Festival, Dead of Winter, Bigsound, Mojo Burning and more as well as supporting the likes of The Growlers (USA), Hockey Dad, The Garden (USA) and Mako Road (NZ) in several sold out performances. They deliver a chaotic live set whilst simultaneously holding an intensity and tightness that only a well versed band can handle, seamlessly moving in and out of Punk, Funk, Pop, Groove, Surf, Psych and Garage.

God please take me to a hot & dusty festival where I'm front row and Fight Ibis are laying down this stomper.
