Unearthed Listeners I'm following:


Fresh off the back of their critically acclaimed 2016 debut album Eon, Western Australian progressive rock outfit OPIA return - stronger than ever. With a new four-piece line up in place, they’re now poised to deliver their crushing new single, All Of Us.   Writing great hooks is something that OPIA has in spades, yet constantly evolving musically and staying fresh with each release. With intelligent song writing, and a sound that is world-class, the band sits proudly among progressive rock’s finest.     Previous releases through The A&R Department boast airplay from the national broadcaster Triple J, constant airplay from the ever supportive community radio stations across the country, prime slots on ABC’s Rage program, and an international following that continues to grow.   A 2017 re-structure saw OPIA build on their foundations, with the additions of new drummer Ashley Doodkorte (Voyager, The Floors) and the addition of a second guitarist in Ryan Felton (Chaos Divine). Sonically the band is at an all-time high, with a live show that’s tighter and more powerful than ever before.   All Of Us was written and composed by Michael Bok (guitar / vocals) and Dan Zarb (bass) before the bands 2017 re-structure was complete, with all drums played and engineered by Adam Round. The new single boasts a stellar production team,  recorded and engineered by Lance Robinson at Pavement Studios in Perth WA and mixed and mastered by ARIA-nominated producer Forrester Savell (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, Twelve Foot Ninja). The results are truly epic.   All Of Us is a track that grabs you instantly and doesn’t let go. It tells the story of life in today’s uncertain climate, that “all we know, is it’s such a mental place”. A stunningly balanced journey that carries beautiful vocal melodies and soaring instrumental work, the new single is set to turn heads and ignite the stage as OPIA embark on the next chapter of their journey.
