Bio

Verticoli occupies a niche in Australian music shared by few others. Combining unrelenting groove with a passion for heaviness and harmony, the band has forged a raucous alternative rock sound that stands alone.

The three-piece has gigged heavily across Australia, having supported iconic Australian bands such as Cog, Kingswood, DZ Death Rays (apologies RE hooking into your rider), The Delta Riggs, and British India. The band also scored themselves a spot at the 2014/2015 Marion Bay Falls Festival.

In 2015, Verticoli independently released their debut LP Punching Bag. Produced by Red Planet's Jake Long and singer/guitarist Sam Hunn (naturally had to score himself a producers credit due to immense Jimmy Page fandom), the album was well received by music publications and community radio across the country.

In 2017, Verticoli returned to the studio to record Free Will, a 5-track EP produced and mixed by Jake Long and mastered by Forrester Savell. This EP spawned the single ‘Free Will’, helping Verticoli secure the opening spot at Party in the Paddock courtesy of triple j.

Following a hiatus in 2018, 2019 saw Verticoli move to Victoria. They released the singles 'So Far' and 'End of Days' to universal critical acclaim and unprecedented commercial success. 2020 has hamstrung the band somewhat, with a pandemic sweeping the nation even more so than the band's 2019 success. However, a band like Verticoli can't be stopped quite so easily! Fuelled by their ever flowing fountains of passion, the band are currently working on follow up material which is, according to insiders, bigger than Texas and heavier than a Clive Palmer parmigiana.

Some riffage Billy Corgan would have been proud of back in the day. Love the hugeness.

You're getting some real girth outta those guitars, making them sound crunchier than a packet of chips in a quiet cinema.
