SACRED SHRINES (single launch)





PSYCH NIGHT live at Mo's Desert Clubhouse in Burleigh. $10/15 BYO (no glass) 18+ 6pm doors


Brisbane’s Psych/Garage cult Sacred Shrines played their first show in March 2014, launching their debut 7 inch at the same time. During their brief tenure, they have shared stages with The Dandy Warhols, The Upside Down, The Demon Parade, Flyying Colours, Tumbleweed, The Murlocs, ORB, Stonefield and many more. The band released their debut album in July 2016, with tracks mixed by Brett Orrison (The Black Angels), Michael Badger (King Gizzard & The Lizzard Wizzard, Demon Parade) and Liam Judson (Cloud Control, The Laurels). Before the dust had settled on their debut album, Sacred Shrines released a 6 track follow-up EP entitled TRAIL TO FIND in 2017. The release is a collection of new songs combined with some previously unreleased favourites and is a step into wilder terrain for the band, whilst retaining some of the hazy, psych-pop palette of their debut LP. The EP was recorded with Producer/Engineer Dan James, a familiar face in the Sacred Shrines family, with tracks mixed mostly by Michael Badger (King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizzard, Demon Parade) with further tracks by Donovan Miller (FOREVR) and Dan James (Drawn From Bees). TRAIL TO FIND is a continuation of the musical mantra the band have been carving from their collective hive-mind since their inception in 2014, and is another heady collection of cosmic sounds and diverse songwriting that will further propel the band towards the far-out reaches of their own musical landscape. On the back of constant touring and radio airplay, Sacred Shrines signed to Californian label Rogue Wave Records at the end of 2017 and have been constantly working on tracks for their sophomore LP.

Fast forward to October 2018, Sacred Shrines return to the live stage with new single Front Row Future, lifted from their second album due in 2019. The song was recorded and mixed by Donovan Miller at Tym Guitars and is somewhat of a departure from their earlier work. It’s an atonal, swamp-rock boogie that sounds like it would be at home in some dive bar at the end of the world. Sacred Shrines will be on tour throughout the rest of 2018 around Australia.

“It’s a rare thing to hear a debut album as confident and compelling as Come Down From the Mountain.” 4.5 stars - The Australian

“Polished and tight, yet psychedelic and experimental, Sacred Shrines prove themselves peers of the acts to come, and a local gem to keep a close eye on.” - The Music


From jangly 12 string guitars, organ, tambourine and surf rock beats, Zöku lyrics dive into topics such as death, religion, stream of consciousness and poetry.

Together we are the trip: celebrate the ride.


Ultraviolet Fuzz consist of members Tyson Allen (Vocals/Guitar), Dylan Hoskin (Lead Guitar), Scott McKay (Bass Guitar) and Jack Sherwell (Drums). The sound to the ears is a simple, yet eclectic mix or rock n' roll, psychedelia, catchy melodies and expressionism.


Dreamy melodies, crunchy guitar tones and glistening keys all meld together to create the psychedelic pop-rock sounds of EchoWave, as if you were listening to a lost reel-to-reel demo you found in garage sale from the late 60's. EchoWave leave their audiences wonderstruck by the experience they bring to their shows. Unpredictable, EchoWave seems to find a way to get everyone up and dancing. Sometimes it's hard to tell who's having more fun, the band or the audience.

After releasing their first self-titled EP in late 2017, they've started to gain significant momentum in the local scene. Keen to spread the new songs, they've been playing shows at venues all around South-East Queensland. Venues are not disappointed either and the band have been asked back to play multiple times at certain venues already.

The self-titled 'EchoWave EP' containing six tracks was written and produced by the bands lead guitarist/singer Sam Croaker. It was then released by Allsorts Records (bassist Nic Pilbeam's record label). There is a music video for the single “Wasting My Time” planned for later this year.

Their plans for the future? Keep it simple and enjoy playing music together.
