About The Event

Australian rock band Midnight Alibi returned home from rocking the sunset strip in LA to a world affected and at a stand still due to Covid.

The band came straight out of lockdown and went into the studio to record their second album release titled “Higher Power”. Their mind set had them pushing to create something special with every track on the album.

“Higher Power” means they feel they have found something beyond themselves musically. It’s a godlike beast of an album. So good they are taking on tour across the country.

Midnight Alibi formed in 2012 on the border towns of Albury (NSW) and Wodonga (VIC), since this time the band has relentlessly toured as a must see act sharing the stage alongside legends such as Rose Tattoo, members of AC/DC, The Screaming Jets, The Choir Boys, Uncanny Xmen, Body Jar, Thirsty Merc, British India, and a hell of a lot more.

In Australia they independently released two critically acclaimed EP’s, 2015 ’Preach It’ and the later 2016 ’Love Yourself Sick’ which included the radio track ‘Down The River’ which gave the band their first taste of widespread airplay. 2017 under Universal Music Australia the album ‘Just Like You Want It’ was released earning a Top 30 debut on the AIR Album Charts. The first two singles ‘Ego Tripper’ and ‘Thief’, immediately attracted major commercial and community radio play including the Triple M metro and regional networks. 2019 the band released a limited two track vinyl ’Loveshine’ including the title track and a B side ‘Hard One’ through Rue Morgue records. Recorded in Melbourne with award-winning Australian producer/engineer Steve Scanlon (The Chainsmoker, Peking Duk). The track ‘Loveshine’ is embellished with Hammond organ and piano courtesy of Tony Featherstone (The Bad Love/Jimmie Barnes). Billy Idol’s long-time guitarist Billy Morrison a Midnight Alibi fan created a canvas for use as the sleeve artwork. The release earned the band a number 2 and 4 on the Triple J unearthed charts.

Their latest single "Violent game" has just dropped, with murky undertones and a powerful chorus message the song is a reflection of the year that stopped the world.

𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐔𝐫𝐛𝐚𝐧 𝐒𝐞𝐚 Truly a melting pot of influences ranging from rock to R&B, The Urban Sea have been kicking around the streets of Brisbane in one form or another since mid-2016. Crowding most Brisbane stages at 6 members, the band covers all instrumental bases, creating a rich foundation for modern lyrical narratives concerning the ebb and flow of city life. 2019 began with the renaming of the band and with some fresh new music, the genre-fluid six piece has found their groove, forging a unique soulful sound that’s all their own.

Singer Chris MacDonald’s evocative vocals lead the group supported by a gooey rhythm section consisting of Casper Hall on drums, Charlie Dolbel on Bass and Hayden Johns on keys. Shanan Kilner brings any and all of the emotion with his tasteful, somewhat nostalgic lead guitar work along with seasoned wind player Ravind Sangha filling the gaps with his arsenal of instruments ranging from screaming soprano sax to a mellow but beautiful alto flute.

The boys are currently back in the studio recording their second offering due to be released early 2021.

𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐁𝐥𝐚𝐜𝐤 𝐍𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐞 𝐀𝐫𝐦𝐲 Brisbane’s Blacknoise Army have managed to capture the raw grit that made the 90’s Seattle grunge scene so irresistible, whilst melding a more arcane lyrical flavour to their particular brand of heavy rock. You can expect lyrics that delve into the recesses of the human spiritus, explore the occult, and ultimately, challenge the bounds of what we know and trust.

Taking influence from a variety of hard rock, progressive, and alternative acts, The Blacknoise Army have crafted together songs that have real depth - far beyond the surface level of dirty riffs, ear-catching drums, and powerful, evocative vocals. Far from your standard heavy rock band, this will entice your ears without treading the same overly-beaten trail that many other heavy alternative acts have worn into the ground.
