Bio

Mayweather is a five-piece Melodic Punk/Rock band from Adelaide, South Australia. Their live debut was supporting Horsell Common on their ‘Reunion Tour’. The band sent HC’s manager a copy of their three-track ‘Demo’ and landed the Adelaide support. A short time later, they had the honour of supporting Trial Kennedy on their ‘Final Australian Tour’ at Jive in Adelaide. As one of their biggest musical influences, this show gave them momentum and drive, to begin writing songs for their debut EP. They recorded ‘Old Guns’ with renowned (producer/recording engineer) Darren Thompson. They sent Darren a roughly recorded version of the songs and he was enthusiastic to work with them. The EP is ‘OUT NOW’ on iTunes and Bandcamp. Or you can stream it now on SoundCloud. It has received rave reviews by both Blunt Magazine and dB Magazine. After the release of ‘Old Guns’, Mayweather secured the support of 28 Days on their ‘Upstyledown Tour’ of Australia. They opened the show to a SOLD OUT Adelaide UniBar. The Music Video for the song ‘The Midnight Flight’ was filmed to coincide with the release of 'Old Guns'. Filmed by the credited Kieran Ellis-Jones, the clip has had a consistent stream of traffic and has recently been played on ‘Rage’ Mayweather have a busy 6 months ahead, including International supports, Interstate shows and are currently working on their next release Streaming of 'Old Guns' EP by Mayweather https://soundcloud.com/mayweatherband/sets/old-guns-ep Official Music Video http://youtu.be/IGGirPLhU3U Purchase ‘Old Guns’ EP by Mayweather http://mayweatherband.bandcamp.com/album/old-guns-ep For all Mayweather’s announcements and official updates: Like them on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/mayweatheradelaide OR Follow them on Twitter https://twitter.com/mayweatherband

Finally some rea...

Finally some real Australian alternative rock that isn't hardcore or pop punk. Triple j need to keep playing this track. Flashback to 2005 JJJ and this would be played everyday. Nowadays you can hardly fit a song in between boring indie bands and try hard gangster rap. Doing ADL proud!
