Gig Information


We're so pleased to announce that FALLSTATE have stepped into the void as our friends Coridian have been unable to make any reschedule dates work with their busy upcoming schedule!

Take one part high-energy pop punk, one part head-bangin' hardcore, season liberally with catchy, compelling vocals, a dash of party, and a love of cut-off band shirts and beer - that's the recipe for FALLSTATE, a band of young up-and-comers hailing from Auckland, New Zealand.

Formed in 2016, the band has quickly drawn attention thanks to their high-octane, fiery brand of pop-punk and their reputation for explosive live shows, with their music being described as "f*****g relentless" (Channel1) and "a momentous cacophony of harmonics and noise that gloriously spills its guts out without pretentiousness" (Muzic.net.nz).

No strangers to hard work, the band has toured extensively throughout New Zealand and Australia, playing alongside names such as Flirting With Disaster, Coridian, MISHAP, Purity, Silence The City, Dead Favours, and False Start. They have recently released their sophomore EP 'Disorder and Symmetry' featuring the singles 'Who the F*ck is Cameron Brookes’ and ‘Permanent Disaster’ which was mixed with love by NZ punk legend Chazz Rabble.

SWERVE CITY are celebrating their debut release, a cover of Big Data’s ‘Dangerous’ - A song about privacy in the digital age. SWERVE CITY’s interpretation provides a slamming hard rock spin, while keeping the dark message of the original intact.

SWERVE CITY is a band that seems drawn together by fate.

Adam Forsdyke (Drums) hopped into an Uber one night, driven by the unsuspecting Kevin Ashby (Lead Guitars, Vocals). Around the same time, Shannon Coloumb (Bass) and JP Carroll (Guitar, lead vocals) were toying with the idea of creating something new, to accompany the pair’s respective solo projects (Imposter Syndrome, Arrays).

JP and Kevin shared the stage when their former bands (Armed In Advance, Fire At Will) had played shows together several years prior. At Swerve City’s first band meeting it was discovered that, unbeknown to them both, Shannon’s parents had purchased Adam’s grandparents’ house. The scene was set.

The sound is one of blistering and melodic leads, expressive and composed bass lines, jack-hammer drum arrangements, thunderous guitar riffs, and emotive vocal melodies and lyrics that tackle everything from fear of the future to ancient philosophy.

STATES are debuting their new singer, returning to the stage for the first time since lockdown with their Post-Nu-Core Sound.
