Bio

Osaka Punch has forged a reputation as one of Australia’s most wildly entertaining live acts. The group’s distinctive fusion of catchy grooves, jazz chops and a rock ethos sets them apart from most heavy acts, and allows an element of humour and satire in an otherwise very serious scene. Reviewers have been keen to emphasise the crowd-captivating live antics of both the outfit, and it’s charismatic and ceaselessly energetic front man, Jack ‘Muzak’ Venables. In 2017 the band completed 2 tours along the East Coast supporting Lagerstein and Twelve Foot Ninja. They were also an official showcase act at Bigsound, where they were met with huge crowds and glowing reviews. They finished off this massive year by releasing the single 'How We Operate', which took the band on a 10 date tour across the country, and was their most successful headline tour to date. The band completely surpassed this in 2018, March and April saw them tour extensively with The Butterfly Effect, with
many of the 1200 capacity venues completely sold out. There incredible live performances and professional attitude caught the attention of New World Artists, who put them on a follow up tour with Melbourne rockers Mammal. Throughout this 12 date tour, it was obvious that their fan base is not only increasing in the capital cities, but also in regional areas. 2019 shows no sign of slowing down with the release of the single 'Hall of Shame' to coincide with yet another sold out national tour with the mighty COG.

This has got that delightful groove, some heaviness, and something you could dance so poorly to as a metalhead you could alienate an entire mosh pit. More room to dance!
