Aussie rock legends Full Scale caught the attention of the American major labels in the early 2000s, signing a record deal with Columbia Records, releasing 2 full-length studio albums, 2 critically-acclaimed EPs, a feature-length documentary produced in New York City, international recording and touring and are now releasing new music for the first time in 13 years.
Full Scale’s new track and clip ‘JURASSIC GRAVEYARD’ is the first release from the anticipated upcoming album. It showcases lead guitarist Jimmy Tee’s (Helmet, Sleeping Giant) psychedelic and powerful riffs, which have always provided the perfect bed for vocalist Ezekiel Ox (Mammal, Superheist, Over-Reactor, The Nerve) to reign musical white-knuckled fury on the war machine and the apathy that allows it to wreak havoc around the world.
Jurassic Graveyard will be available to purchase on January 12 through Bandcamp.
To coincide with the new release, Full Scale has announced a national tour from February to March in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Bunbury and Adelaide.
Full Scale is one of Australia’s most exciting live bands with a legacy of raw, emotional and stunning performances. The band returned in 2016 for brief run of shows, including selling out the Ding Dong Lounge in Melbourne. This time round they have lined up two shows in Melbourne, where they will be playing their classic and rare EP’s ‘Black Arrows’ and ‘White Arrows’ in their entirety on alternating nights. Tracks like ‘Crush’, ‘The Story To Tell Your Children’ and ‘System Of Shame’ will get their first live airings in over 15 years. Other shows across Australia will feature a mix of the old favourites and some new music as well
Never a band to do anything by halves, supporting them on this national tour are two of the Australia’s most exciting hard rock up-and-comers, Darwin’s Terracotta Pigeons and Sydney’s Bad Moon Born.
Always uncompromising, fearless and never defeated, FULL SCALE has come for your mind, body and soul.
‘Anyone who caught their early-naughties shows under the name Full Scale at venues like the Espy will testify to their “going to take over the world” vibe.’
– Beat Magazine
‘Ever since that crazy first tour last year, with all of us coming from all corners of the globe … all I can say is that it better not be as bigger party as last time, I don’t think my body could take it. Looking forward to touring with Terracotta Pigeons and Bad Moon Born. Look out Australia, we’re fucking back!’
