Bio

*JUST SIGNED TO RATBAG RECORDS - NEW EP "ARCHER" OUT JUNE 2ND - TOURING WITH DUNE RATS & TIRED LION IN JULY/JULY*

Pandamic are a punk, indie rock band that originally hail from a small central Queensland town, Rockhampton.

Rhys and Joe started out playing local pubs and festivals as a duo. Later down the track remembering this long haired, metal blasting beating dingo Rangi who had always talked about starting a band one day!

Many jams and skate sessions later they met Lyle the perfect candidate to complete the 4 piece.

The boys began to compose tunes together for months. Finally deciding to go for it and self record their first debut EP ‘Scumbag’ in Joes family shed with the help of good friend Jack Rynswoud. The EP quickly gained attention and Triple J airplay.

Since this point Pandamic have toured locally and abroad. They have supported Dune Rats, Guantanamo Baywatch, Columbus, The Pinheads, The Vanns to name few and have played Groovin’ The Moo and El Grande Festival.

2017 kicked off supporting Australian heavyweights The Rubens on their Queensland tour.

Ratbag Records signed Pandamic on the 3rd of May. Their signing is followed up by an EP Tour and National Regional Tour with Dune Rats in June/ July/ August.

Their recently recorded new EP ‘Archer’ (Engineered and Mixed by Troy Brady, Mastered by Phil Pluskota) is out Friday June 2nd, featuring new Single ‘Sam’ out Friday 5th May.

The boys will continue to spread their committed roudyness throughout 2017.

Pandamic is all about having a good time, but mainly about Rhys whinging about sheilas!

Likable scallywags: check / Heaving guitar crunch: check / A chorus that ascends to higher plains: check and then some.
