PRE-EMPTIVE STRIKE Forming in mid 2005, Pre-Emptive Strike are a 4 piece punk rock band that have electrified crowds at party's and pubs through out Tasmania. With members originating from Launceston, Devonport and Hobart P.E.S bring the sound of fast paced punk rock, blended with supurb melodic guitar harmonys and blood curdling solos. Their songs draws influence from politics, the current state of the world and any opinion they feel like voicing at the time. Pre-Emptive Strike consists of Gerard Brumby , vocals/guitar, Aaron Lucas, guitar/vocals, Cameron Howell, bass/vocals and Nick Medcraft, drums. In January, P.E.S were able to hit the recording studio to release a four track demo which was handed out to numerous punters at shows, and it was very well received. With an energetic and antic packed live show P.E.S keep their small but rapidly growing fan base excited and entertained from the start to the finish of their up tempo flat-out set. P.E.S are currently working on new material and are hoping to get into the studio at end of this year or early next year so as they can release their debut EP.
