Melbourne’s very own Born Free are set to rock the stage at the Gasometer Hotel in Collingwood. After taking some time to write a new album, its the bands belief that this is hardest hitting yet, both sonically and emotionally. Amongst the chaos and fury, the sentiment of this LP will leave listeners wanting to hear more.
Bad Juju have entered into the spotlight with all guns blazing, and with a background playing in established bands such as, Confession, Jack the Stripper, Lovers Grave, and Earth Caller, it’s no surprise the Melbourne band know how to make an entrance. Drawing inspiration from the likes of The Story So Far, Citizen, and Turnover, Bad Juju have formulated hard-hitting 90s inspired grunge and punk rock without forgetting their original roots in the heavy scene. The band’s current single, ‘Moving On’, captured the attention of Triple J and Triple J Unearthed, securing an add to full rotation on both stations, and scoring the band a slot as Unearthed featured artist.
Joining this celebration will be Brisbane’s ‘Deathbed’. Verging on the lines of Death Metal and Hardcore, it also encroaches the realm of early to mid 2000’s Metalcore. After destroying the Phoenix Youth Centre last year, I’m sure they will leave their mark time and again.
Opening the show will be newcomers ‘Porcelain’ who are set to release a demo this month. If you like 90s New Jersey hardcore with a bit of darkness and emotion, then this band is up your alley.
This show is set to explode and will be one for the books. Don’t miss out, and support local music.
