Bio

Schoolfight is a six-piece mix of righteous Australian hip-hop infused with dirty funk undertones and smooth, three-part crooning verses. On-point flow, addictive keys and solid bass lines that are as big as they are bad-ass perfectly combine with sweeping trumpet and chugging guitar to create a powerful sound that dominates the recorded and live domains.

Work on the third Schoolfight album, due for release in early 2016, is well under way with the first single ‘Australia’ being recognised in the finals of the 2015 QMA Urban category, a great follow up to Schoolfight’s 2011 QMA Urban winner, ‘Robots’.

Schoolfight hit the live stage hard last year, touring Far North Queensland, stomping Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast and visiting beautiful Byron Bay and northern NSW. 2014 saw Schoolfight grace stages in support of some heavyweight acts including the mighty Jurassic 5, TrueVibeNation, Horrowshow & The Funkoars.

The Fight’s live show, genre mixing style and musicality combine to create an experience to cater to any crowd. It’s hip hop based, but much more than that - catchy hooks, big beats, live instruments - real music, executed by a team of blokes that have stayed the course and continue to keep it real, for real.

This year Schoolfight mark their 10th year in the music game. This alone screams volumes about the band and the music they make. The fact that crowds keep coming back show why Schoolfight is one of Brisbane's most sought-after and respected live acts, blessed with a large and loyal fan base stretching coast-to-coast. This isn't Jonny come lately radio meh - this is quality live Australian music.

The name Schoolfight has become the bench mark for testing those who claim to know about Australian music, chances are if you haven't heard of us, you are a commercial stooge, and we feel sorry for you.

The next single "2am" drops June 2015.

“No ego, no bullshit. We make party music, it’s not rocket science”, says front man eMCYTe (Scene Magazine, Feb 14)
