Bio

WITHOUT PARACHUTES are a three-piece rock band from Wollongong, New South Wales with roots in alternative, indie and grunge genres.

2013 saw the release of their first self-titled EP and single 'It's Time Again' and now with the firepower of ARIA award-winning producer Nick DiDia (Karnivool, Powderfinger, Rage Against the Machine, Stone Temple Pilots, Bruce Springsteen) behind them, they've unveiled a thudding musical composition of thundering percussion, melodic rhythms and soaring vocals in their latest EP - 'This Is a Fire.'

Members William Cruger (lead vocals & guitar), Michael Cooper (bass & vocals) and Bob Stewart (drums & backing vocals) have previously supported bands like Papa Vs Pretty, British India, The Getaway Plan, Voyager & Closure in Moscow.

There's a big, menacing vibe to this with Soundgarden-sized riffs and stadium ambitions.

Reminds me of the Die Hard with a Vengeance levels on the Sega Saturn Die Hard Trilogy. So much love.
