Grim Fandango formed in 2006 and exploded out of Perths hardcore scene after supporting a number of international acts including Avail, The Bronx, Bad Religion, Strike Anywhere, Bouncing Souls, and NOFX to name a few... The first EP "IV Eat Not The Heart" as well as the debut full length album "Birthmark Blues" were both well received locally and nationally and Grim Fandango continued to support even more international bands like Hot Water Music, Against Me!, Leatherface. Grim Fandango have also played at Melbourne's Poison City Weekender festival every year since 2009. Over the last six years Grim Fandango has played with some of Australia's best bands such as Bodyjar, A Death In The Family, Lead Sketch Union, Coerce, The Smith Street Band and many more! Powerful, jangley guitars matched with catchy and sophisticated lyrics separate Grim Fandango from most punk acts around. With an honest Australian sound, a strong DIY attitude and a unparalleled live set, Grim Fandango are undeniably one of Australia's hardest working and most enjoyable bands.
In 2013 the band released their sophomore album Flicker Noise, recorded partially in Adelaide at Capital Sound Studios and also in Perth in their own studio.
2014 has seen the bands great endeavour... writing, recording, and releasing a song each month! For more songs check out the bands facebook and bandcamp websites!
