It all has to begin somewhere. For some, it's a simple flame that can't simply be put out, for Joe Guiton, it's an emotional bonfire that won't be extinguished until the final songs are sung and the remaining whiskey has been imbibed.
Joe, together with his band The Suicide Tuesdays, to put it mildly, are the soundtrack to every Melbourne day. Just like this city maintains the weather of four seasons in one day, so too are the songs of Joe Guiton and the Suicide Tuesdays. Within one song, you may feel fire, you may feel rain. Guiton's songs are for all the moods and experiences of his generation.
Described as a heartfelt, emotionally charged folk punk band, Joe Guiton & The Suicide Tuesdays that have been playing together for 2 years. Having trodden the boards of the majority of Melbourne's beer-soaked venues, in 2014, Joe was handpicked by Lagwagon front man Joey Cape to support him on his emotional "Songs of Tony Sly" acoustic tour after the untimely death of the great No Use For A Name frontman.
Following on from that experience, and after releasing three very well received solo EPs (two self-released and one on Melbourne label Whisk and Key Records), Guiton recruited Toffer Rush (Admiral Ackbar's Dishonourable Discharge) on bass, longtime friend and multi-award winning songwriter and thespian Simon Barlow on guitar, and drummer Nathaniel Cardwell (All We Need, Where's Grover?) to form a full band, to flesh out his acoustic sparks into fully-fledged punk rock bonfires.
The talented foursome started playing their catchy folk punk anthems across Melbourne in 2014, and have become known for their exciting live shows that have seen them quickly become one of Melbourne's must see live acts, and in demand around Australia's exciting independent punk rock scene.
Importantly, Joe Guiton & The Suicide Tuesdays pride themselves on their blistering and provocative live shows that emphasise tolerance of any race, gender or age, whilst fanning the flames of the emotional bonfires we all live through from time to time.
Their highly anticipated debut album "Facing The Fall Alone" will be released in Spring 2016 through Whisk and Key Records (Del Lago, Max Goes To Hollywood, Jay Wars & The Howard Youth).
Joe Guiton & The Suicide Tuesdays are highly recommended for fans of, among others, Jimmy Eat World, the Smith Street Band and Frank Turner & the Sleeping Souls.
