Bio

Just over a year on from the release of their debut album, At the End of the Day, Melbourne pop-punk underdogs Pitt the Elder are back in the saddle with their second LP, Radio Silence, out now via Brisbane’s Arrest Records.

Pitt the Elder’s first album, At the End of the Day, released in March of 2015, received positive reviews from the likes of Beat Magazine and The Music, as well as airplay on stations including Triple J, Triple J Unearthed, 4ZzZ and RRR.

True to the band’s fat-trimming, succinct nature, Radio Silence is a 24 minute blast that leans heavily on their distinct use of melody and big hooks. It’s poppy, certainly, but it never betrays the garages and sticky-floored pubs that it grew out of.
