Bio

Lincoln le Fevre & the Insiders are back with a new record, and in the evergreen words of poignant nu-metal poets, Staind, it’s been a while.

In the depths of a South Hobart winter some ten years ago, Lincoln le Fevre & the Insiders starting writing songs that would soon become 2008’s debut album 30-Watt Heart. The band quickly cultivated a local and national following with le Fevre’s unique kind of bullshit-free punk-country storytelling, equally capable of airpunching singalongs and crowd-silencing emotion.

If 2012’s album Resonation was a masterful exercise in emo-country, dwelling on life in a small-time town, then this year’s upcoming release Come Undone is a supercharged record on what’s left on leaving. The Insiders are set to introduce a bunch of these new tracks, including the first cut from the record ‘Useless Shit,’ recorded in late 2016 with producer Mike Deslandes (The Nation Blue, Hoodlum Shouts) at the controls.

Lincoln le Fevre has toured extensively both with the band, and as a solo artist, most recently playing punk-rock mega festival The Fest in Florida, USA, and coming home to his signature ‘couch residency’ to capacity audiences.

“[le Fevre] is anything but still onstage as he croons and hollers over love lost, friends ditched, and beers spilled through the ages of bars and pubs. With a voice somewhat contrarily as smooth as whiskey, it's easy to see why most have put down their drinks to soak up the sounds by the time he's finished.” – themusic.com.au

“Le Fevre is powerful vocalist, but what really makes him stand out is what he has to say. His tales and observations are bravely worded and ring as genuine and personal.” – Rhythms Magazine

Come Undone is due for release mid 2017.

This is killer. Band sounds great and the lyrics are as good as ever. It's filling a big Smoking Popes shaped hole in my heart just nicely.
