Bio

Since the bands first meeting while still in high school, and after their formation in early 2010 the boys from “Jupiter Menace” have made a big impact on the music scene. The band's debut self titled album, “Jupiter Menace”, weaves Zac and Ben Crawford’s dynamic lyrics with crowd-pleasing riffs to evoke a genre defining album chocked full of rock for a new generation of fans. With standout tracks like "Break These Chains," and an unbelievable live performance, don't be surprised if you find Jupiter Menace at the top of the rock charts and beyond. Moving on from where Powerage left off. Founding members and main songwriters Ben and Zac Crawford have continued to test the boundaries of their song writing by continuing to deliver powerful and emotive rock songs. From there they have gone on to a range of achievements which have included: • Taking out the title of “Australasian Best New Band” in the internationally-recognised Global Battle of the Bands tournament in 2008. Representing their country, the boys performed in London against bands from 35 other countries, taking out 2nd place. • Supporting acts such as Matchbox 20, Australian bands Thirsty Merc, The Screaming Jets, Grinspoon, Amy Meredith and Karnivool, • Performing on 2MMM’s Ugly Phil program, Channel [V], Rage, The Today Show, The Crew program on SBS, appearing on NBN News and playing a range of high profile shows including Sydney’s Royal Easter Show and performing at the opening for the England Vs New Zealand Rugby League World Cup match in Newcastle. • Releasing the Debut E.P titled “Get Ready in March 2009” and music video as “Powerage” with includes influences from classic rock bands like Deep Purple and ACDC. Song writers Ben and Zac Crawford received 5 star reviews from several Australian and international magazines and were given the thumbs up from a range of rock music lovers and journalists from around the world. • In early 2010 the boys went on to win NSW major band competition Youth Rock and performed at the Music Oz Independent Music Awards in Sydney as well as winning best school band. Now joining forces with friends Mitchell Seigers and Ben Grimas, the band is armed with a new line up, new album, music video, a number of gigs leading into the New Year and most of all a strong belief to succeed. Jupiter Menace is now focused on taking their music to the world with strong ambitions of touring in Australia and overseas in the not too distant future.
