Bio

Hailing From the northern suburbs of Wollongong "Hospital the Musical" have been released onto the Australian music scene like a zoological prison break! Lets go through the checklist- Indecipherable roaring vocals? Check. Scrittery guitars? In spades. Wild switches between time signatures? Bingo. Hospital the Musical filter their metal through a Daughters/Botch/Dillinger Escape Plan prism. With the release in 2009 of their debut album REDorphan this has plenty to offer fans of those bands and then some. In the 4 years since the birth of Hospital the Musical they have shared the stage with major International and Australian acts such as The Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge, Horse the Band, Coliseum, Rosetta, Graf Orlock, Carpathian and have subsequently demolished popular rooms like The Metro Theatre, The Manning Bar, The Roundhouse Sydney and The Arthouse Melbourne.
