Bio

11 has kicked of with a bang when Tetscity EP was released on the 20th of May with a massive launch party held at Brisbane’s The Hi-Fi, supported by Hip-Hop stalwarts The Winnie Coopers. The boys are setting up a line of shows to fill the year and will embark on a tour of Australia’s east cost, scheduled in November. No Filter: A band with something to say and nothing to lose. No Filter is a six piece urban movement of rebellious expression that carries a menacing edge of rock, rap, metal and funk. Combining a natural raw energy, their synergy blends with broad influences to encompass a unique and explosive style of cool. Heavily influenced by Incubus, Rage Against The Machine, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and diabolical rap, the music combines a contrast of sweet melody, heavy riffs of distortion, funky rhythm, and a whole lot of zest. The six boys make up of drums, bass guitar, twin lead guitar, turntables and three vocalists who exploit their natural ability to deliver emotional, energetic performances that give back to the fans. No Filter formed in Brisbane in 2004, perfecting their sound at in garages, living rooms and house parties, before taking out the converted ‘Rockstar Band Competition’ after only five live performances, thus confirming a promising future for the freshest band on the block. By the end of 2006, No Filter had played alongside Butter Fingers at the 4ZzZ Market Day Festival and then supporting hometown heroes Regurgitator at the Valley Fiesta. A national tour with ‘28 Days’ followed, as the boys took their music to the furthest corners of the country. Earning an adoring following along the way, No Filter lapped up the live circuit of Brisbane and Southeast Queensland, playing everything from underground shows to the summer festival circuit. Following a live interview with radio station 4ZzZ, No Filter finished the year with a bang, releasing their debut E.P 'Suit Up' to a sell out show at The Living room in Paddington. With the recent release of single Where Are You Now, No Filter headlined its launch party held at The Hi-Fi in Brisbane’s freshest music hub, West End, in February 2011. This release however was just a taste of what’s to come in the new upcoming EP The boys had since built a new studio, Pisscotton Studios, in which they created the new Tetscity E.P. This has allowed them the privilege of exploration into new sounds, style refinement and endless freedom of creativity. Producer Greg Reason from Brisbane assisted with the mixing process before it was sent to Mathew Agoglia in New York for mastering treatment. The final word from vocalist Jonny is testament to the band’s evolution, vision, and inspiration. “We focused on refining our style through a distinct variety of tracks for this record. Musically, we aimed to give each track its own identity, considering our musical tastes and influences being substantially broad, this process took a natural course. We also attempted to convey this with the lyrical content ranging from (true) stories and events of life, to party and somewhat motivational ballads”
