Heartbreak Club

What has become of Heartbreak Club (HBC)? Once a straight-up parody of angst-ridden pop, HBC are rapidly becoming Australia's beacon of hope for Geek Rock; spearheading a new wave of 1990's inspired intelligent, ironic and self-deprecating punk-infused tunes. In doing so, HBC have recorded a new, darker and grittier album that is 'unapologetically melodic; adopting a brutally honest, confessional and grungier tone' than previous efforts, with the band noting their admiration for Weezer, Regurgitator, Blink 182 and Nirvana. They are still geeks, however.

Chaingang

Chaingang is a group of three dudes and one dudette from Sydney, Australia. We've been making music together for two years and are currently finishing off some new tunes for our debut release coming out later this year. So far, we've played with some amazing bands, met a lot of fabulous people, recorded and played shows in the US, survived a real car crash as well as many metaphorical ones on our rocky road to international super-stardom. The only band all four of us love is Faith No More, but we can only dream of making music that majestic.
