Bio

FOAM are a three-piece grunge band from Perth, WA. Their heavy 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 Nirvana, 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 supporting acts such as DZ Deathrays and Wax Witches.

FOAM will be releasing a single mid 2016, followed by the debut album release. Keep an ear out...

“(So Far So Good) Listen to this song and wait for the 46" mark. Convinced? I was. Then I listened to their two other songs. A band with potential? I think so.” -Richard Kingsmill, Triple j

“No surprise these guys have been getting gigs with DZ Deathrays and Bleeding Knees Club: Foam have some serious grunge'n'roll swagger.” -Dom Alessio, Triple j

“Surfed up punk rock with a twist of Cash and Cave” - Rosco Stewart, Altered State (Soundwave, Big Day Out)
