Bio

FOAM are a three-piece heavy-alternative band from Perth, WA. Their live performances deliver a filthy wall of sound reminiscent of the alternative rock boom of the late 80’s/early 90’s. With influences including Nick Cave, Johnny Cash, The Breeders, The Drones and anything Steve Albini, FOAM tread the line between infectious melody and vicious punk. With a solid reputation as a strong live band, FOAM have supported acts including The Rubens, DZ Deathrays and Sleepy Sun (USA).

FOAM have 4 EP releases under their belt including Sarpa Salpa (2013), Run Kon Koma (2014), FOAM/Puck split vinyl (2015) and The Feeling Is Mutual (2015). Each of these releases picked up national airplay on Triple J and community radio stations around Australia. In the past few years FOAM have toured the country numerous times playing festivals (MATES Sydney/Big Day Out Perth/Groovin' The Moo Bunbury), headlining their own shows and nationally supporting acts such as DZ Deathrays and Wax Witches.

FOAMs debut album it set to come out in Feb 2017. The first single I Could Milk Myself will be released July 8 and launched at Mojos in North Fremantle July 30 with support from Doctopus, Puck, Regular Boys and The Kramers.

"FOAM have hit the nail on the head, further cementing their place as one of Perth’s most cherished acts." Themusic.com.au

"Not to be missed if you are keen for an intense intelligent sweat" Rotunda Media

"They were a snarling force to be reckoned with who tore through their set all too quickly, and I can’t wait for their next killer show." Perth Sound and Found
