Knocked Loose are just what the Colonel ordered: A fresh batch of Kentucky-fried, scorched-earth, brutal-beatdown hardcore to throw bodies off stages to. The band's menacing and unrepentant approach to the genre has cemented them as heavyweights despite only being two albums and a handful of years in. Hell, even Corey Taylor has championed them as the future of heavy music. How did these southern boys send their trajectory skyward? Prior to a show in Newcastle with Jesus Piece, vocalist Bryan Garris and drummer Kevin "Pacsun" Kaine broke down their own personal musical histories and how they inevitably intertwined within a small town that they turned into a global village for hardcore.

Growing up in the concrete slabs of the Gold Coast, you can't always get what you want. It wasn't until Kate Cooper moved up north to Brisbane that she was truly able to get some degree of satisfaction. A mid-2000s stint at the helm of Iron On turned her into one of the country's cult indie darlings, which blossomed to a global scale with her next band, An Horse. Things were very very good for awhile there, but things also got very very real. Cooper doesn't hold anything back in discussing the highs and lows of her career at the tail-end of a national An Horse tour back in late February.

With a blend of psychedelia, pop, folk, jangle, indie, shoegaze and rock & roll, RAT!Hammock have assembled and curated a sound that is irresistible and wholly endearing. It's made them a lot of friends and fans along the way, which is always a plus - but this band, like most their age, started out with no loftier ambitions in mind. They're suburban kids, ranging from aspiring metalheads to baby Elvis impersonators. How exactly did they all end up in Brisbane, on a co-headlining tour with Horror My Friend and sold-out signs on the door? It's a long story. A fun one, too. Thankfully, there was some dude with a microphone there to document the entire thing. Thanks to Rad Management, the Black Bear Lodge and Paul McWhirter. RAT!Hammock's new single "Word Of The Day" is out now.

Fresh out of rock & roll high school, LA's Starcrawler wasted little time in delivering their punchy blend of glam, punk and rock & roll to an unsuspecting but entirely appreciative audience. It's turned their late teens and early 20s into a dazzling melee of sold-out shows and jaw-dropping accomplishments, receiving recognition from industry giants like Dave Grohl and Sir Elton John along the way. In January 2020, Starcrawler came to Australia for the very first time. In-between shows, they took a half-hour of power out of their busy schedule to elaborate on how this slap-dash batch of wiry teen rockers evolved into one of their city's most talked-about rock bands.

It wouldn't matter if Newton Faulkner had one hit or not - he'd still be a wonder. Whether it's his inventive and dizzying guitar playing or his stirring, emotive voice, Faulkner has remained one of the more charming and entertaining prospects of the singer-songwriter circuit - both in his native UK and abroad. He's spent most of the last decade working on his terms, outside of the structure of major labels and primarily touring with little more than a pedal board and his tour manager - who also happens to be his sister. What can we learn from the freewheelin' Newton Faulker? Quite a lot, as it turns out. From teenage punk bands to sold-out theatres, there's not much this ginger ninja hasn't done. Newton's new EP 'Chapter I - I Can Pretend' is out now via Battenberg Records.

What started in a bedroom on the south coast of New South Wales has now spread its wings and traversed the country - singing songs, sharing stories and exploring a wide spectrum of musical ideas. Sean Conran was synonymous with Obscura Hail from his teens and well into his 20s before the moniker expanded to include other people. In 2019, this included bassist/vocalist Tamara Issa and drummer/percussionist Stevie West - and it was this line-up that created the project's most recent effort, the Zero EP. While on a national tour in support of it back in November 2019, the trio shared tales from across parks in Nowra, rough nights in Bendigo and crab shacks in outer-suburban Melbourne.

Conroy Ross, Paul Minor and Tomy Thisdale grew up in small-town Canada, dreaming of the west coast. Each found their way to music in a similar fashion, and soon enough they ended up in a tight-knit music community exploring their love of rock music in all its shapes and forms. Having originally formed The Carbons with a different lineup, Tomy first recruited Paul and then Conroy to be a part of the band - and now, with well over a year of experience playing together, The Carbons have their sights set on the next level. In November 2019, the trio toured Australia for the very first time. In-between dates at the Australian Music Week conference, the band held court upstairs at the Town Hall Hotel and shared tales from ramshackle pubs, makeshift US jaunts and Montreal assholes.

Canada's Cancer Bats never formed out of any grand ambitions to change the world - indeed, it began as little more than a side project for Liam Cormier and Scott Middleton. Even so, the next 15 years saw the riff-loving Canucks take their love of punk, hardcore and rock & roll to a global stage. No matter what has come their way, the band has made a point to never lose sight of their roots. They've also made a point of never losing their sense of humour - and this episode will happily testify to that. In October 2019, Cancer Bats ran ruckus on Bar Bands before a freezing-cold show with Totally Unicorn in the nation's capitol, Canberra. Cormier and bassist Jaye Schwarzer turned the podcast into their playhouse, while simultaneously offering up informative history of the early 2000s Canadian hardcore scene. Equal parts factual and funny - what's not to love?

There was never a universe in which such a strange band with such a strange sound and an unmentionable name would be successful. Except, of course, this one. A wholly DIY freak-folk expedition, Crywank have been streamed millions of times and faced a fervent cult fanbase wherever they would show their faces. How exactly did two working-class English punks make such a considerable dent? Vocalist/guitarist James Clayton and drummer Dan Watson (with special guest melodica player Joel Hernandez) offered up a guided tour before their last-ever Sydney show at the Red Rattler theatre towards the end of 2019. Expect ongoing tales of musical boxes, travel disasters and a testicular scare in the midst of an emotional rollercoaster. Yes, all of those stories are real.

Sasami Ashworth grew up as a quiet achiever. She pursued music only on her own terms, and even when she ended up in a touring band it was as a side player. It's only in the last 18 months that Sasami has finally emerged in the spotlight as a singer-songwriter in her own right. Her debut self-titled album is a thing of vulnerability and resplendent indie-rock beauty, indebted to the likes of Liz Phair and The Breeders and yet quintessential enough to forge its own identity. In November 2019, Sasami arrived in Australia for her second visit and her first national support in support of Spacey Jane. Before a show in Wollongong, Ashworth (and perhaps a special guest) spoke openly about piano lessons, touring with Cherry Glazerr and meeting Debbie Harry.

Damian Abraham never wanted to be in a band or be involved with music above simply appreciating it. Whatever happenstance allowed it to happen, however, the man who would later become known as Pink Eyes eventually evolved into one of the scene's most passionate creatives. Whether he's at the helm of Fucked Up, hosting his own podcast or sharing his love of wrestling and weed to a global audience, Damian lives and breathes what he loves. We spoke to the man himself while Fucked Up were touring Australia in October of 2019, discussing everything from Toronto hardcore, sustaining a band over 18 years and getting wailed in the balls at shows.Sliding Doors Turned Out a Punk Thanks to Samantha Clode, Frontier Touring, The Gasometer, Damian Abraham and Adam Buncher.

Amanda Palmer has never been the kind of artist that bows to the status quo. Existing outside the conventions of rock, folk, punk and cabaret, she's been making music that provokes, intrigues and entertains for some 20 years now. Whether it's part of The Dresden Dolls, the Grand Theft Orchestra or under her own name, Palmer has always been creating and performing. It's not come without its controversies, but every setback has allowed her to grow, adapt and evolve. It's lead to her third solo album, , which is her most exhaustive and personal collection yet. In the midst of an extensive Australian tour, Palmer spoke at length about her origins as a child of the 80s and teen of the 90s, before kicking into the 21st century with a ferocity and unbridled ambition.There Will Be No Intermission Amanda will be on tour until the end of February.

Growing up amidst the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles, Cleo Tucker and Harmony Tividad found both a lifeline and an escape through music. Encouraged by their families and their peers, they each kicked around teenage garage-rock outfits before forging their own path as Girlpool. With the release of their debut album, 2015's , the duo clicked on an international level and ended up with a cult following for their unique, folk-inspired take on indie rock. More albums and tours have followed, the most recent being 2019's . After a show in Wollongong and before a show in Sydney, Cleo and Harmony gave a whirlwind tour of their fascinating lives up to this moment.Before the World Was BigWhat Chaos is Imaginary Thanks to Cat Clarke, Cooking Vinyl Australia, Harmony Tividad, the Boat Harbour Motel and Adam Buncher.

In her late 20s, she now stands as one of the country's most promising and captivating singer-songwriters, thanks to both her solo debut as well as two modern-classic LPs with previous band Two Steps On The Water.

They may be tiny dots on an endless timeline, but La Dispute have made their time together count. Over 15 years and four studio albums, plus a dozen EPs and countless tours, the band's unique and poetic take on post-hardcore has endeared them to a global audience. Theirs is the definition of a cult following - they may not pack arenas, but everyone at a La Dispute show will scream every last word right back in the band's face. One of the band's key turning points was coming to Australia for a completely DIY national tour back in 2009, and the country has become a second home for the band - quite literally in drummer Brad Vander Lugt's case, as he now lives on the Sunshine Coast with his family. Both he and vocalist Jordan Dreyer - not only cousins, but the founding members of the band - tracked the band's history before one of the final stops on their most recent tour, at the Cambridge Hotel in Newcastle.

From the depths of small-town Oklahoma, garage rockers Broncho (rhymes with 'poncho') have spent the 2010s crafting a compelling and unique niche within their genre. It's a band unlike anything its members have worked on in the past, whose origins range from sibling rock duos to bedroom acoustic projects. On the back of their fourth album, Bad Behaviour, Broncho toured Australia for the first time in June in support of previous guests of the show Methyl Ethel. Prior to doors, we spoke with Ryan, Penny and Nathan from the band about what they've been able to achieve as a part of Broncho - and where it might take them next.

On paper, the two members of Cry Club couldn't be more different. Guitarist Jono Tooke, for instance, has been playing in bands for over a decade despite not even being 30 yet - from big-swinging indie to freaky math-metal and back. Vocalist Heather Riley, on the other hand, has never been in a band before. Their mind was always on the theatre (dahling), and that's where it would have stayed had they not been saddled up next to Jono on a flight. Since their first show at the start of 2018, Cry Club have achieved an unbelievable amount of things - just the day before this went live, they were revealed as the number-one most-played artist on triple j Unearthed radio. That's just the tip of the iceberg, too - we get into EVERYTHING on this bumper edition of .Bar Bands Cry Club head out on the "Robert Smith" tour this January.

Georgia Mooney was a shy, awkward kid with Backstreet Boys posters on her wall and a dream of one day being a singer. Not only has she become one of the most celebrated folk artists in the country as a part of All Our Exes Live In Texas, she's even been able to perform alongside her childhood crushes - and plenty of others where that came from. The multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter's journey stretches from northern Sydney to Perth and all the way across to foggy London town. Over a coffee in Newtown, Georgia shares how her fascination with music lead from clearing the family home just so she could sing all the way to hosting her own songwriters' circle.

Really, it doesn't matter - any way you cut it, Joyce Manor have been one of the most consistent and engaging bands in rock throughout the 2010s. Never quite settling, and constantly switching things up, the band has found a cult following that's lead to sold-out shows and deafening sing-alongs in just about every corner of the planet. Not that this kind of ambition was realised by a young Barry Johnson, however - starting out as a young punk in Op Ivy worship bands, he could have never forseen how his career would go down. Hell, he didn't even envision having career. Prior to a show at Sydney's Oxford Art Factory, Johnson raced through his musical upbringing and his coming of age right through to where the band stands in the present tense.a Special thanks to Cat Clarke, Cooking Vinyl Australia, the Oxford Art Factory and Adam Buncher.

A quiet kid from suburban Adelaide, Sione Teumohenga always kept their passion for music private and locked away. Bit by bit and song by song, however, saw them unravel that shyness and insecurity to ultimately reveal a blooming, blossoming and creative songwriter. The last few years has seen Teumohenga at the helm of Lonelyspeck, creating some of the most unique and immersive experimental/electronic music that this country - or indeed any country - has to offer. Through Lonelyspeck, Teumohenga has gotten to play Laneway Festival, collaborate with Allday and even open for The Dillinger Escape Plan - and they're far from finished, too. Back in June during a visit to Sydney, Teumohenga had a chat out the front of a busy Surry Hills cafe and gave a quick guided tour through nu-metal discoveries, high-school bands and opening up to Ableton. Lonelyspeck's new EP is out November 15 via Good Manners Records.Abyssal Body Lonelyspeck will be opening for Baths on November 19 in Melbourne and November 20 in Sydney.

The sun is out, the guitars are plugged in and the gates are open... Yours & Owls Festival is a go for yet another year. For the fourth year in a row, stuck the mic into the face of some of the festival's biggest names to spin a few quick yarns about the first show, worst show and best show that these artists have ever played. This year, we went around the horn with Vera Blue, Odette, Sneaky Sound System, Caitlin and Nick from West Thebarton, Ruel, Evan and James and Griff from WAAX, Matt from Love Fame Tragedy/The Wombats, Rivals from Gravel Pit, Genesis Owusu and Spacey Jane.

In 2005, Karnivool became an overnight success story in Australian heavy music - and all it took was nearly a decade of pushing the band to get there. Nearly 15 years on, the Perth five-piece have lost none of their drive or motivation - even if we don't hear new music for years at a time. There's a method to the madness, and the band's approach to progressive alt-metal has kept them in consistent demand as a live band both nationally and internationally. In-between all of that, there's been other bands, burnout, creative sparks and hitting sheep with their van - and none of it got left out when vocalist Ian Kenny and bassist Jon Stockman gave the Vool the treatment before a show in Wollongong back in June.Bar Bands Special thanks to Bec Reato, Deathproof PR, the University of Wollongong and Adam Buncher.

Friends plural, you ask? Yep, that's right. For all intents and purposes, Ruby Fields is not one singer-songwriter but four best friends: Adam, Patrick, Ruby and Tarzo. They've been kicking around in one another's bands for years, all based out of the Sutherland Shire and its intrinsic music community. It wasn't until Ruby's music broke out just a couple of years ago, however, that business really picked up. Before a show in Canberra, all four members of the band shared stories from across their time playing music - together, separately and through the doldrums of day-jobs. Fair warning: Pretty lame and pretty tame this ain't. Ruby Fields will be playing two sold-out shows at the Brass Monkey in Cronulla this October, followed by a regional tour in November and December with LOSER.

The big-time was never meant for a band like Foxing. They grew up on the outskirts of any real music scene in St. Louis, Missouri, often having to venture outwards or create their own scene and community from within. It's with this, however, that Foxing have become cult heroes. While a typical show from the band won't be filling out big theatres or arenas, everyone in attendance is devoted to the band's passionate and inventive take on emo-revival indie-rock. Look no further than their maiden voyage to Australia as living proof of this, as the band played to tiny, packed rooms full of screaming, adoring fans. In-between those, lead vocalist Conor Murphy and guitarist Eric Hudson sat around a kitchen table in their Sydney hotel suite to give their entire musical careers the treatment.Bar Bands Special thanks to Cat Clarke, Renee Rudolf, Cooking Vinyl Australia, XIII Touring and Adam Buncher.

Warehouses, dive bars, boats... if there's a PA set up somewhere in New Zealand, there's a good chance Miss June have rocked it and then trashed the place. As one of the country's most sought-after live acts, the Auckland-based quartet have put in the hard yards on songs that are equal parts noisy, hooky and defiant - all before even so much as putting out their debut album. Today, that all changes - their debut album is finally here, and it's well worth the wait. Prior to all of that, however, lead vocalist Annabelle Lidell and guitarist Jun Park pulled up some stools prior to a gig in Canberra supporting Ruby Fields. Through fits of giggles and a half-dozen tangents, we spoke of the tight-knit NZ music community, the hotspots of the islands and how to handle a crowd that has no idea who you are. is out today via Frenchkiss Records.Bad Luck Party Catch Miss June live next week in Australia: September 11 - The Vanguard, Sydney w/ Georgia June and Good PashSeptember 12 - Croxton Bandroom, Melbourne w/ Dune Rats and West ThebartonSeptember 13 - Metro Theatre, Sydney w/ Dune Rats and West ThebartonSeptember 14 - The Triffid, Brisbane w/ Dune Rats and West Thebarton Special thanks to Rachel-Jones Williams, Sony Music Australia, Frenchkiss Records, the University of Canberra and Evan Birtwell.

He's SPOD, baby - and when he's at home, they call him Brent Griffin. It's safe to say that no-one has had quite the same trajectory in the world of music - from a simple Hills District kid discovering hip-hop, to 2000s festival favourite, right up to 2010s cult figure and coffee reporter.

Across two albums, it's made them one of the most captivating new bands on the indie-rock circuit - and in July of 2019, it was finally Australia's turn to experience this exceptional band in the flesh. Over a couple of jetlagged drinks in Sydney, frontwoman Eva Hendricks and guitarist Spencer Fox let loose on everything from the art of percussion to their best-forgotten nu-folk project.

Behind every great solo performer, there is a killer session musician bringing their work to life. Just ask Dave Jenkins, Jr. - after all, he's made a career out of it. From Andy Bull to Reece Mastin, Vera Blue to Kirin J. Callinan all the way up to childhood hero Daniel Johns, the multi-instrumentalist has found himself either behind the kit or serving as the musical director for an impressive bevvy of names. In 2019, he's officially stepping out on his own under the moniker of Not A Boy's Name. So, how did we get here? With nearly a decade of history between us, we sat down with Dave at Forbes Street Studios in Woolloomooloo (AKA Sheep Dunny Cow Dunny) to see how an ambitious kid from the central coast dropped out of music and almost quit the game entirely before bouncing back in the most unexpected way.

This week's story is bittersweet. We're celebrating the musical journey of an incredibly talented young man, whose honest and emotive work was bolstered by a fruitful and prosperous DIY community after other parts of the country - and even the world - ignored him. Azim Zain is a Malaysian-born singer, songwriter, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist that has split his life between Adelaide, Sydney and Canberra. Unfortunately, Azim was recently deported, meaning he can't be with us here in Australia to share this story. Thankfully, we recorded this the afternoon prior to his final show for the time being as a Canberra local, and now Azim's story gets to be heard like it always deserved to.

The hills of Adelaide. The beaches of the Central Coast. The outskirts of Sydney's inner-west. Despite coming from three completely different worlds, the four members of I Know Leopard found common ground through their love of music - from The Strokes to classical and all the way through to worship music. 2019 has already proven to be the biggest year of the band's career - their long-awaited debut album, , was released in April, and saw the band sell out a show at Sydney's Oxford Art Factory not a month later. This chat with three-quarters of the band - Luke O'Loughlin, Jenny McCullogh and Rosie Fitzgerald - sees the band lay it all out on the line for an hour.

With their sleeper hit "Ubu," the Perth natives took to national stages to increasing acclaim that has now spread to their third studio album, .

"This is our music. These are rebel songs. Are you in or out?" Ever since the Stodarts (Romeo and Michelle) crossed paths with the Gannons (Angela and Sean) on the outskirts of London, theirs has always been a unique approach. In the mid-2000s, they generated a buzz to the point that they were able to play three sold-out shows without even releasing any music. Plenty has followed in the intervening years, however, including last year's excellent LP. Outsiders Traversing the worlds of pop and rock with a gleeful, harmonious tinge, The Magic Numbers have always thrived on their own terms and have never compromised their vision for anyone else - a trait to truly be commended in this day and age.

As one of Oklahoma City's major musical exports, the band have been taking their barroom-ready take on melodic punk to every last sweaty room that will have them.

For this chat, he's joined by the person with the second-longest tenure - vocalist/guitarist Garrett Dale - and the two talk shop on tour beers, the differences between "Rapper's Delight" and "Gangsta's Paradise" and the moments in the band's history that have made their teen selves proud.

As soon as he was drawn to music as a teenager, George Clarke had an eye for the extraordinary, the outlandish and the unabashedly heavy. It would come to reflect in the music that he made himself, most notably coming to fruition in the form of Deafheaven.

For Joe Talbot, all he has ever known as a vocalist, songwriter and performer has been IDLES since they first formed back in 2009.

In a candid chat in the Gallery Bar of Sydney's Oxford Art Factory - while the rest of his bandmates learn how to play Streets songs - Talbot explains his initial love of music, the rise and fall of UK indie and what one learns from relentless touring.

Growing up on the outskirts of LA, Phoebe Bridgers never had a specific moment where she decided to become a musician - truth be told, it was second nature. It wasn't long after Bridgers picked up a guitar that she was performing around town to an ever-increasing audience, eventually landing her slots on the road with everyone from Julien Baker to the Violent Femmes. She's been winning hearts and drawing out tears from her audience ever since, not only with her remarkable 2017 debut but also her collaborative EP as a part of Boygenius in 2018. With a brief moment of downtime on her first-ever Australian tour, Bridgers gave a quick guided tour through her musical endeavours, past and present.

Outside of the land of the long white cloud, The Beths were somewhat of a well-kept secret up until about this time last year. With the release of their debut album, Future Me Hates Me, the Auckland band became an international commodity and one of the quickest rising indie-rock bands of 2018. They now have support slots with the likes of Death Cab for Cutie and Bloc Party under their belts, not to mention a string of sold-out gigs both at home and across the pond. Before all of that, though, Liz Stokes and Jonathan Pierce were just awkward indie kids trying to figure out where they fit in. They tell stories from all across their still-blossoming career here, before taking to the stage at the Lansdowne in Sydney.
