Coming to fruition in the inner-city suburbs of Melbourne in late 2011, Stockades deliver emotionally-soaked sounds of great contrasts. Though their roots exist alongside words like hardcore and screamo, it would be a crime to classify the five piece as simply another one of those bands. Post-rock, jazz, and math-rock influences more than permeate their unique mixture, with an extreme metal-edged level of technicality giving fluidity to the band’s own joyous yet tortured sound.
Having previously released a demo in 2012, completing an Australian tour with El Alamein (BNE), and a split with Nuclear Summer (BNE) in January of 2013. The band’s debut EP release is available in both 10” and digital formats through MONOLITH this June; covering dates from Brisbane to Hobart with Seahorse Divorce (BNE) in support of the release.
