Bio

Hailing from the city of Adelaide, Mayweather are a five piece melodic rock band who have been taking to all sizes of stages both at home and interstate since coming together in December of 2011.

Members Tommy Woolcock (Vocals), Karl Munce (Guitar), Liam Neville (Guitar), David Edwards (Bass) and Peter Edwards (Drums) quickly found their feet and managed to pick up early supports for the likes of Horsell Common and Trial Kennedy, both of whom had a strong influence on the sound Mayweather aimed to produce.

After a year of treading the boards, and plenty of writing, the band entered the studio. The resulting debut EP 'Old Guns' was released in April, 2013 along with a video clip for the lead single 'The Midnight Flight' introducing the band to a wider audience. The single went on to pick up a nomination at the 2013 Australian Independent Music Awards in the Best Rock Song category.

Now with both live and studio experience under the belt, members were united with a clear desire to write, and play raw, honest music straight from the heart.

Their second EP 'Take Back Everything' (July, 2014) was just that. Earning plays on triple j's Short Fast Loud program and local community radio while picking up a number of positive reviews from the media.

Chucking A Mosh declared "From the second you hit play on the first track, also the title track, you can hear exactly what the band are going for with the new release. It’s filled with memorable vocal hooks that lead into trademark wailing choruses from singer Tommy Woolcock."

While Killyourstero concluded "Mayweather show a lot of potential on this EP, and it’s going to be an exciting ride seeing where they take themselves in the years to come."

International support slots for the likes of Funeral For A Friend, Hawthorne Heights and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus followed among a slew of local shows.

Currently, the band continues to work on new material whilst playing shows, and have plans to release and tour a full length in 2016.

Most recently the band supported Kisschasy on two sold out shows at The Gov as part of their farewell tour, and also were a part of The Getaway Plan's Adelaide album launch show at Fowlers Live adding two more to the list of influences they've shared the stage with.

Oh man this brought back such great memories of Trial Kennedy/Horsell Common gigs at The Arthouse. This is definitely for fans of those bands.
