Having ridden the crest of the almighty powerful Australian alternative-rock wave in the mid 90s, Melbourne band Suiciety have reformed after a nineteen year hiatus, and to celebrate they are hitting the road to tour the release of their EP titled Crawling Machine Edition (via indie record label Desert Highways) and they can’t wait to perform to new and old fans alike.
The EP will be launched at The Evelyn Hotel on Fri 30th October and Fri 4th December at San Remo Hotel. The band will also perform a run of regional gigs taking in Bendigo onFri 6th November at The Music Man Megastore, Ballarat on Fri 13th November at The Eastern Hotel, and Geelong on Sat 28th November at Barwon Club.
Forming in 1990 when Melbourne school mates hooked up over a love of skating and punk/hardcore/metal/rock, Suiciety gleaned from all types of music styles, creating a signature sound of their own. Over the next six years the band rose to fame taking on the live Australian circuit by storm and were invited onto the bill of the then notoriously cool touring juggernaut Big Day Out, plus a slot on the ill-fated Alternative Nation and were handpicked to support the likes of Sepultura, The Supersuckers, Kreator, Ministry, Bodycount, Fear Factory, The Tea Party. They also played alongside other Australian legends like Tumbleweed, Cosmic Psychos, and the Mark of Cain. Drum Media (Syd) described the band in 1995 as ‘mosh pit, housewreckers of the highest order’.
Crawling Machine Edition was actually recorded in 1996 but never saw the light of day due to the band departing the scene without releasing it. Fastforward to 2015 : the band are back, with a swag of music that stands the test of time, and are hungry to take over where they left off.
With three of the original five piece hitting the stage (they have a new drummer and bass player) they are itching to get out there and do what they do best – playing adrenaline-triggered hard and fast tunes. Do not miss this.
