After a number of line-up changes, the group released their debut EP, Belafonte, in April, 2012 containing some of their early works. The group then began work on a second EP of new material, releasing, There’s No DSL In Hell, in August 2012. The group has since relocated to Melbourne. After recruiting a new bassist, the group completed their first tour with fellow ex-FNQ musicians, YACHTBURNER (formerly Cancer Eyes), they then returned to Melbourne and recruited another member to play a second guitar in August 2013.Lopaka's members are currently working on an LP, with an even bigger sound, to be released in early 2014, You can hear their previous releases at www.lopaka.bandcamp.com
