Bio

Buoyant pop-punk meets twinkly Midwest emo revival in Superdose Gangway’s unique brand of melodic heavy music. Formed in Adelaide, SA in 2015, the band’s members all met whilst studying jazz at the Elder Conservatorium. Led by frenetic, synth-wielding vocalist Max Tulysewski, the band features the endlessly versatile guitar work of Ben Finnis and Sam Morris, virtuosic bassist Bonnie Aué and the pounding bolt-action drumming of Craig Burns.

Initially a songwriting project for Tulysewski and frequent collaborator Liam Gare, Superdose Gangway quickly established themselves as a hard working band known for unorthodox releases. The first of which was called ‘twenty-six songs in twenty-sixteen’ and it saw them composing, recording and releasing a new song every fortnight. Upon completion of this project, the band released a best-of mixtape called ‘Monsoon Season’ through US indie label Old Press Records.

Their single Nothing Gold was included on an international 4-way split 7” with Summerbruise (US), Gun Shy (UK) and The East (I) and their song Quixote appeared on ‘We Believe You: A Benefit Compilation for Victims of Sexual Violence’ amongst a host of US emo mainstays including Great Wight, Prince Daddy & the Hyena and Into It. Over It.

Superdose Gangway has built a reputation for intense, high-energy live shows. They have supported a number of like-minded acts such as Tigers Jaw (US), Signals Midwest (US), The 5.6.7.8’s (JPN), Carb on Carb (NZ), Ceres, Turn South, Zen Haircuts and Columbus and performed at festivals including Stonecutters 2019, Woolly Mammoth 2019 and Party Animals 2018 (NSW).

“One of those high energy ‘ping-pong off all four walls, the floor and the ceiling’ emo bands that are super fun to watch…seriously, they’re not bad.” - Spoz’s Rant

“Their brand of pop-punk glistens with twinkly guitar riffs and is coloured by a characteristic vocal spitting clever and personal lyrics through a microphone choked with both hands.” - Uncle Mum



“The twinkly guitar riffs had me instantly hooked, as did lead singer Max’s energy, I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone move around such a small stage as much as he did.” - The Australian Underground
