Melbourne’s High Octane-Heavy Stoner Rockers, Don Fernando are packing their gear up and taking to the roads for a celebration of 10 Years of sweat, riffs and good times.
2015, had seen the release of the 3rd studio album, Haunted By Humans; A dark and moody landscape, that encapsulates the growth and development of the Band.
“Don Fernando write songs that hold their own against anything released by Nineties generator party bands. A lot of acts are mining similar territory, but Don Fernando feel like they’ve got the spirit and the F#$%-OFF attitude of the genre down-pat.”
Matt Coyte, Rolling Stone Australia.
The heat has been on for the boys to drive their fuzz filled, atmospheric live performance to a new level. This heralds from a successful tour through Spain, France and England, now the fiercely branded sound that Don Fernando have created for themselves and for the loyal rock freaks of Australia is extremely drenched in dedication, that the boys are focusing on keeping it tight on home soil, and growing into a performance powerhouse that electrifies your senses.
Frontman/Riff Rider Andy Simpson curated the first installment of Fuzzfest, a local two-day festival featuring some of Melbourne’s best hard, heavy and sonically fuzzed out bands to a sold out Cherry Bar. Don Fernando now turn their attention to their 10th Anniversary Mini East Coast tour, celebrating the history of the band and culminating with an all star extravaganza at their spiritual home, Cherry Bar on the 17th December. This show will feature a rotating lineup of the band bringing back most of their previous members, including current and past members of bands such as King Parrot, King of The North, Warped, Swidgen and Grindhouse.
“It’s been an amazing 10 years for this band, when it was conceived I never would have thought we would make it out of Wollongong let alone play festivals in Brazil to Thousands of people, or tour Europe 3 times!! It’s time to celebrate what we have achieved.”
Andy Simpson, Don Fernando.
