Touted by Australia’s Tone Deaf as “One of Melbourne’s most well-loved Alternative Rock’n’Roll bands” Society of Beggars have truly committed their future to a life sentence of Rock’n’Roll.
Their primal brew of rolling riffs, hissing, thunderous rhythms, and heart-wrenching melodies stand in stark contrast to the pro-establishment, don’t-think-about-it-too-much, mood of the current era.
Their forthcoming album ‘Levitator’, the follow up to 2017’s ‘An EP Called Night’, is grounded in the personal. The stuff that both dreams and nightmares are made of. In between two successful tours, national radio airplay, and the EP release, the band suffered a tragic loss. Frontman Yianni and guitarist Jim Michalopoulos’ musician father and group mentor, Miki, passed away. In the twelve months that followed, the brothers began demoing new material within the confines and safety of the band’s musical HQ, the upstairs studio in drummer and co-founder Dibi’s home. For Yianni, newer bandmate, bassist Nicoli Foulstone, brought something powerful with her to the songwriting and arrangement process. “When you’re feeling all of that manic energy that comes with grief and loss, half in love with the world, half wanting to destroy it, the ground underneath you seems to be constantly falling away. Dibi and Nicoli’s friendship and our musical connection really laid that foundation under our feet and my brother and I will be eternally grateful to them for that.”
