[pullquote]We are gonna launch our EP in Sydney & Melbourne this April [/pullquote]We don’t play favourites with our musical children…. but we are proud to be able to have our debut EP finished.

I think we’re always keen on the newest tunes we have written overall, we put in a lot of effort to our live performances so I’d say I value them over any individual songs.

Tell us a quick, on the road or studio, anecdote.

Ace once had his bass amp stolen from his car while he was at work, lesson learnt….

What, or who, inspires you?

Local bands, community radio, instant coffee, alcohol, marijuana, any servo food – hot or otherwise, good friends, expensive taxi rides, xbox & clean washing….its good yeah?

Which song do you wish you wrote?

Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen

How would you describe your sound in food form and why?

Lasagna, all about the layers right? Hahaha that reminds me I’m over due for some lasagna..

What’s next for you?

We are gonna launch our EP in Sydney & Melbourne this April & I would imagine we’ll hit the studio again later this year for a follow up.

What’s your scene?

Long haired men & women with shaved heads.
Raw, fuzzy, loud & sweaty.

About The Burning Roaches

“Set to become one of Melbourne’s new favourite scuzzy punk crews” – Tone Deaf

Melbourne DIY band The Burning Roaches are a handful of abrasive, grunge goodness and fuzzy feedback drawing from 90’s nostalgia.

Late 2015, the band revealed the first taste of their debut self-titled EP. The single ‘Bad Things’ saw support from community radio nationally.

Having spent the past year writing and recording, the band are ready to drop their raw 4 track EP. Each track teeming with gritty riffs and good time spliffs, making The Burning Roaches a gem for fans of garage and grunge in Melbourne’s underground live music scene.

The Burning Roaches are gearing up to launch the EP with live shows in Sydney and Melbourne this April.
