Bio

Blasting out of the speakers with herculean riffs and razor sharp vocal hooks, Melbourne Alt. Rock band Pacing The Cage, is like a case of hand grenades with their pins pulled out.

“On the album (INTOX), Pacing The Cage achieve something very few bands can do in this modern age of ours, and that’s sustain your attention from start to finish..” ~ Happy Mag

Inspired by the way in which human rights are manifested in the everyday lives of people at every level of society, the band covers topical ground as intense as mental illness, political corruption, social equality and Australia's place in the global refugee crisis. The debut album (AUG 2017), Intox (French for 'brainwashing') delivers these explosive themes and wraps up powerful lyrics in equally incendiary music... a barrage of heavy guitars, thundering drums and towering vocal melodies.
