Bio

Shapes Divide are a 5 piece progressive rock / post punk band from the southern suburbs of Adelaide. Drawing on influences from bands such as Dead Letter Circus, Alexisonfire and Karnivool, the band combines driving bass, catchy vocals and ferocious guitar riffage. Shapes Divide are soon to release their much anticipated second EP "Forever Engraved" which was recorded, produced and mixed by Reid Jones at Deep Blue Studios (Adelaide) and mastered by Forrester Savell (Birds of Tokyo, Dead Letter Circus, Karnivool). This EP has been almost two in the works and the band cannot wait to release the whole thing, but until then they have released "Wide Eyed Kids" and "Jester On The Throne" for you to download from Triple J Unearthed. "Wide Eyed Kids" is nearing 1000 downloads on Unearthed so be amongst the many to check it out and feel free to give it a review. Forming in 2008, Shapes Divide released a self titled demo in 2009 which has become quite the rarity amongst friends and fans. In 2010 they released their debut EP "In Transit" which received raving reviews and secured the band a slot at the Kangaroo Island Surf Music Festival where they shared the stage with the likes of Eskimo Joe, Hungry Kids of Hungary and Matt McHugh just to name a few. Earlier 2013 the band were invited to play the first ever UniSA Gear Up Festival where they headlined the lion courtyard stage and again shared the bill with Hungry Kids of Hungary as well as Ball Park Music and Asta. 2013 also saw the band share a bill with The Griswolds and played to a pack out Ed Castle. Shapes Divide have recently released a single from their soon to be released EP which has already gained a tonne of attention getting airtime on Triple J amongst other radio stations. Make sure you keep your eyes out early next year for their EP "FOREVER ENGRAVED". “Could easily be a Big Day Out mainstay for years to come”- RIP IT UP MAGAZINE “A powerful and compelling voice… awesome vocals… Shapes Divide have some extremely catchy elements to their music”- PEE MAGAZINE “All in all a very solid EP that shows loads of potential, hopefully the band doesn’t get ‘stuck in Adelaide’ and are able to spread their wings, hit the road and show off their talents to the rest of the country” - BOMBSHELLZINE.COM
