/// Fait Accompli
One of the hardest working bands on the independent music scene today, Sydney Soul Punks FAIT ACCOMPLI are back on the scene with some brand new music! Fait Accompli have opened for Dead Kenndys, Glen Matlock (SEX PISTOLS), Sebadoh, New York Dolls and toured with SAGE FRANCIS. FAIT have also shared the stage with The Smith Street Band, Die! Die! Die!, Sticky Fingers, Violent Soho, Goons of Doom, The Bennies, Born Lion & many more over the span of 10 years.
Fait Accompli return with a new single, a catchy tune for the summer. Recorded and Produced by Wade Keighron (WOLF & CUB / THE SCARE) ‘HIGHWAYS’ is an anthem about the great escape, the journey through life, a song about the depths of where love and friendships have taken us all over the years and where we end up, but also where we still need to go.
/// Venice On Fire
A head-banging alternative rock band that wears their hearts on their sleeves, the Queensland trio combine sad, complex narratives and gorgeous melodies with a massive
sound designed to fill floors and rooms across the country.
A true success story from regional Australia, the Toowoomba-based boys started in western Queensland four years ago when guitarist Tom Gillespie bonded with drummer Darcy
Cavanough and bass player Jarrod Hall.
The trio took elements from Violent Soho, DZ Deathrays, Smashing Pumpkins and Rise Against to create an aggressive debut EP Home, before following it up with full-length release Tempt A Saint. The self-funded tracks cover a depth of themes and emotions, such as love, loss, tragedy and jealousy.
Since moving to Toowoomba two years ago, Venice on Fire has grown in stature and popularity, earning a spot at the Airlie Beach Festival of Music and playing with major alt-rock contemporaries like Port Royal, Bugs, The Chats, Kingswood, WALKEN and Particles along the way. In true rock and roll style, the three boys piled into a 15-year-old Nissan Patrol and travelled 4000km from Airlie Beach to Sydney in support of Tempt A Saint in November, which received airplay on community radio in Australia, the United Kingdom and the United
Their new single ‘My Friend Mal’, a rip-roaring rock track in the vein of the Hard Aches, Luca Brasi and Dear Seattle, is due for release in September and will feature a massive east coast tour later this year.
