It is the rare band who can stand the test of time to truly say that they have the staying power that The Wrath do. 12 years in the Business and they are still provoking mayhem everywhere they tread. They are the mainstays of Australian punk/rock. Beginning their journey in hazier days of the Australian music scene in 2003, they have covered the Australian map and have stapled their turf in every town – now they are inciting their riot once again with a second full length album on the horizon…
In their tenure as one of Australia’s most high-energy and well respected punk/rock acts, The Wrath have broken down barriers between genres, both soundwise and visually, with conviction. Whether they have founded their identity upon many genres or just simply defied a specific genre’s permanency is yours to decide, but they continuously dominate venues with bands vastly diverse within the punk, rock, metal, rockabilly, hardcore, goth and industrial realms.
The latest single “City Riots” is a follow-up to the 2012 single “Pull the Trigger”, which came post-hiatus for the 5-piece horror rockers from the Gold Coast. It’s a rollicking track that smacks the listener in the face, doesn’t apologise, picks them up and drags them along, fist-pumping, for a hell of a rockin’ ride!
The Wrath are Tommy Creeper – a maniac on the mic – his dark-wave vocals aren’t just filled with passion, they are laced with old-school crooner style. The guitars of the crew are looked after by Spectre Deano and the deadly Carina Acquarola. The sound is then anchored to the grave by the newly super-charged rhythm section of Jase Hand on drums and The Count on Double Bass.
Over the years, The Wrath have carved their own niche in the Australian music sub-culture world that has seen them gain respect from bands and audiences alike. They have shared the stage and kicked out the jams in venues with likes of The Misfits, The Meteors, Tiger Army, Nekromantix, Good Riddance, No Use For A Name, Lagwagon, The 69 Eyes, Pulley and I Killed the Prom Queen just to name a few. Their reputation as a cracking live act earned them a hometown spot on the Gold Coast Big Day Out bill along side Tool, Muse, My Chemical Romance and more in 2007.
“Tales of a Deadly Nightshade” was their highly lauded first release. It was produced by Alex Markwell, who manned the boards for such bands as Bodyjar and VanLustbader and mastered by Leon Zervos (INXS, Midnight Oil).
The highly anticipated 2nd full length album ” Disillusions and Resolutions ” is out now and sees The Wrath return to the live front once again…..
