The three-piece punk outfit are a driving force behind Australia’s DIY pub rock scene having shared the stage with The Smith Street Band for their inaugural Pool House Party and recently joining Frenzal Rhomb as their main support in NSW’s dirty and delightful RSLs. When they’re not passionately protesting for their beloved Victoria Bitter Co. to unblock the band’s social media accounts, they’re touring relentlessly, supporting politically empathic and sonically elating acts like The Peep Tempel and The Pretty Littles. Politically charged, grating and funny as ever, SCABZ provide direct and unapologetic protest in the Mike Baird-defying ‘Locked Out’ and cowbell-doused tales of chasing tipsy smooches in ‘Beach Song’.
2018 has been a year of technical and expressive growth, and with guitarist and vocalist Siobhan Poynton’s increasingly thrilling style of guitar playing; SCABZ are closing in on a full, reckless and energetic sound that no other act in Australia can match. These beer-loving goofs will release an EP in 2019 and are touring extensively across Australia in 2018 supporting Skeggs and playing headline shows.
