Hailing from coastal NSW town, Port Macquarie, The Foreign Objects will release their eagerly-awaited debut EP, ‘Amongst Ghosts, By The Sea’, this 26th March on Cross Section through Inertia.
Combining the punk ferocity of The Bronx with the rock swagger of early Grinspoon, the four-piece are proving to be a true force to be reckoned with.
Having come together only eleven months ago, the group have built their name the old-fashioned way: tirelessly performing for an ever-growing base of devoted locals. As word spread of their furious live sets, their profile skyrocketed. Soon they were selling out headline shows in their hometown, performing alongside the likes of Spiderbait, Little Birdy and Children Collide at 2009’s Festival Of The Sun, and supporting the likes of Grinspoon, Philadelphia Grand Jury, The Boxer Rebellion (UK), and The Scare!
Having just completed headline shows in Sydney and Melbourne in January – with a larger Australian tour promised for April – The Foreign Objects are a definite band to watch in 2010. But for frontman, Luke Hall, the hype is merely a sideshow to the main game: “We don’t care about trying to prove anything to anyone. Rock ‘n’ Roll’s never been about being accepted. We just wanna scream in your face.”
