Seems like the Pandamic boys are having way too much fun on the road with Dune Rats and Tired Lion and are not ready to face the post tour blues just yet. So, to keep the party alive and to bring the new tracks to fans closer to home, Pandamic have announced a small run of shows in Northern NSW and SE Queensland.
Born and raised in Rockhampton but now Brisbane & Sunny coast residents, Pandamic have been busy. They are the latest signing to Dune Rats’ label Ratbag Records, have just released new EP Archer, dropped the new video for first single SAM and piled into a campervan to hit the road on the Dune Rats ‘Fuck Yeah Ledge Yew!’ Tour
Talking about the upcoming shows, and more adventures to come, guitarist/vocalist Rhys Adam says, “The tour has been absolutely mental so far! To celebrate the release of ARCHER we are playing at some of our favourite venues all around our new home, South-East QLD (and Byron) yeiwwwwww! We have also got some rad shit planned for August/Sept/Oct – which you will all know about pretty soon!”
Pandamic formed after months of hanging out writing and skating together, then taking up residency in a shed to self-record their debut EP Scumbag, which quickly gained attention and airplay at triple j on release in 2015. Off the back of Scumbag, the boys toured locally and abroad supporting Dune Rats, Guantanamo Baywatch, Columbus, The Pinheads & The Vanns and have played Groovin’ The Moo and El Grande festivals.
They kicked off 2017 with a support slot on The Rubens tour before heading into the studio to record EP #2, which was engineered and mixed by ex-Amity Affliction guitarist Troy Brady.
The boys are deeply committed to spreading their rowdiness throughout 2017 and will accompany good friends and label mates Dune Rats as well as Tired Lion on their huge regional tour of Australia throughout June and July.
Pandamic are Rhys Adams (Guitar/Vocals), Joe Scriha (Guitar/Vocals), Rangi Barnes (Drums) and Lyle Hardy(Bass/Vocals).
