Bio

Originally meeting each other through a countless number of gigs in old Brisbane bands, the three best pals from WALKEN soon formed a new project of their own and moved into a share house together.

Comprised of Matt Cochran (Vocals/Guitar), Patrick Shipp (Guitar/Backing Vocals) and Beej Vaughan (Drums/Backing Vocals), WALKEN are pop-fuelled frenzy of Alternative Rock and ambitious Punk that aim to satisfy your nostalgia-ridden Pop-Punk loving heart.

After spending a steady few years supporting numerous domestic icons (like Violent Soho, The Smith Street Band, Luca Brasi, DZ Deathrays, Tired Lion and more), WALKEN have cemented a dedicated fan base across the East Coast of Australia and established themselves as a local staple in their hometown of Brisbane.

The band has self-released various singles and EP's in the past couple of years, including the Triple J-supported ‘Even if It Kills Me’, ‘Eagle Eye’ & ‘Unomi’, all taken from their most recent EP ‘What’s Your Environment?’ (which was engineered & produced by long-time Violent Soho producer Bryce Moorhead). Since the ‘What’s Your Environment?’ release in December 2017, the band has filled their time with multiple tours and interstate runs while writing toward their debut album.

Since wrapping up their 2019 by playing the Brisbane leg of Good Things Festival and multiple QLD dates supporting The Bennies, WALKEN now sprint into 2020 at full pace with an 8 date tour across the East Coast of Australia and the release of their brand new single ‘Regular Human Person’, with more singles ready to release later in the year.
