Bio

Hailing from Mount Gambier in South Australia, Pridelands relocated to a new home in the thriving city of Melbourne. Since the release of their debut EP 'Natives' in 2015, the band has held nothing back with relentless support shows with local and international heavyweights and multiple Australian tours to cement themselves as hot property on stage in the Aus heavy music scene.

2018 saw Pridelands reappear in force with a new line up and lease on life. They released their second EP 'Any Colour You Desire' to critical acclaim and multiple sold out shows. In December 2018, they embarked on their maiden headline tour in support of the EP.

2019 kicked off on a high when Pridelands won the triple j Unearthed competition to perform the Unify Festival main stage and scoring the triple j Unearthed Feature Artist that week.

Now Pridelands return with brand new single 'Dark Sources'.

Co-Vocalist Joshua Cory explains the theme behind the song;
"It's the feeling of holding forbidden knowledge of sinister origin. The song describes the pressure of feeling silenced by the weight of things you've discovered by chance. If we didn't know about the darker sides to the world and industries we've found ourselves in as people over the years, would we be better, happier people? Would we be better off without it?"

In support of the 'Dark Sources' single, Pridelands will perform a string of headline shows in June before hitting the road in August supporting Polaris in WA and The Brave on the East Coast.

Great to have more music from these guys. They were absolutely unreal at Unify earlier this year. This one's another charged, ruthless and powerful track. I love how the vocals sound so piercing. I love it so much.

Half joyful singalong, half super pissed off Stray From The Path style mosh-riffs, all pretty damn good.
