Bio

He Danced Ivy are a handsomely loud alternative-rock band blending grunge influenced punk-rock with punk influenced prog.
Multi-layered vocal harmonies, twisted song structures and an energetic in-your-face-but-in-a-good-way ferocity are smashed together to form a sound affectionately referred to as “Party-Prog”.

Forming in Coffs Harbour (NSW) in 2014, the band relocated to Brisbane in early 2016, releasing their debut album, ‘The Verbal Kind’ later that year. ‘The Verbal Kind’ (Mixed/Mastered by Forrester Savell) is a 10-track exploration of verbal miscommunication, bone-crushing breakdowns, intricate instrumentation and soaring energy peppered with dynamic breaks and lush layering – leaving the listener with an undeniable urge to slam the replay button as hard and as fast as possible.

Sharpening their live shows with supports slots from acts such as Circa Survive (USA), Protest The Hero (CAN), Dead Letter Circus, Mammal, The Delta Riggs & Caligula’s Horse, plus landing spots on multiple festival line-ups including Brisbane’s Progfest & Banana Field Music Festival, has equalled a bombastic, regularly polished and tight live performance guaranteed to shake even the most stable room.

Takes you to a few different places in the one song. The theatrical presence - can't keep my ears off it.

Damn, this band's such a trip. Wicked vocal performance (and I mean performance!) and a band that seemingly wants to change direction at any given opportunity.

This band never fail to excite. Ideas, energy and riffs off the hook.
