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.

it's a fearsome, unhinged punk blend which would get fans of a. swayze and 100 jumping around.

Balancing a sense of urgency with total control. Boom, you did it.
