Fresh off the stage supporting adrenaline rockers Dead Letter Circus, Brisbane’s Aerials are set to unleash their sophomore EP, ‘Restless’. Starting the year to capacity crowds at Melbourne’s “Rock the Bay”, Brisbane’s “Black Bear Lodge” and a national tour supporting Jericco on their ‘Machine Made The Animal’ tour, Aerials will be returning to the road with their own run of shows this spring, promising a lot sweat, strobes and riffs.

With Forrester Savell (Dead Letter Circus, Karnivool) returning to the desk, title-track ‘Restless’ is a seductively sinister story packaged as a blinding-bright assault to the dancefloor. The David Lynch inspired clip delves into an underground world of fetish, obsession and surrealism.

Hailing from a city in which indie popsters make all the rules, Aerials are breaking the mold to carve a place all of their own. The reputation of these three Brisbane natives has built fast on the back of a live show that is a blistering reminder that rock is still alive in this country. Receiving nods from Triple J Unearthed, RAGE and Channel V, and supports including Dead Letter Circus, The Getaway Plan, Calling All Cars, Closure in Moscow and The Red Paintings.

In their first year as a band, Aerials headlined three east coast tours in support of their singles
‘Silhouettes’, ‘Black & Blue’ and ‘Patient Parades’. All three tracks received rotation on Triple J Unearthed radio and extensive spins on community radio stations around the country. Holding strong to the DIY motto, the accompanying music videos were hands-on affairs which resulted in
experimentation with projectors in fast cars, destruction of countless items of furniture and a couple of brushes with law enforcement.

The debut EP dropped in 2013, supported by a massive run of 15 sweaty shows all the way from Cairns to Adelaide. With Forrester Savell (Karnivool/Dead Letter Circus) manning the desk, lead single ‘Firefights’ is a rock anthem in rave territory which earned them a Highly Commended Award from Queensland Music and a headline slot at Bigsound.

2014 was a break from the road, but a breakthrough as a band, following a week together in the wilderness to pen new material. A contradiction to the environment, the forthcoming EP is a collection of chaotic but cohesive pop with synthesized riffery and crunching beats, laced with the soaring and commanding croons of vocalist, Jackson Walkden-Brown. The EP’s teaser track ‘Symptoms’ received another Highly Commended Award from Queensland Music in the Rock category.
