Bio

Life After Football is a Sydney five piece, sometimes four, but always six, including original vocalist, D. Halliday, in self-imposed exile in Switzerland and relegated to ghost-writing duties. Inspired by the career progression of ex-football players who open used car yards in the outer metropolitan suburbs of Adelaide, Life After Football is a retirement band for once shining lights, dulled by the cruel grind of trying to make it in the big smoke.

The driving rhythm section, angular guitars and Aussie mope-pop vocals have earned Life After Football a reputation as 2020’s top might-watch band. For fans of Gang of Four, Eddy Current, and Talking Heads.

Life After Football are releasing three singles in succession – Blame Trees in February, Logsplitter in March and William Morris Years in April. These follow their debut EP Goanna Eggs and 2019’s Top Order Collapse.

renegade, unpredictable punk with an above average red blood cell count.

This band ringing the alarm so we stop sleeping on 'em. These guys are perfecting their own brand of inscrutable DIY punk wit.
