New Rock To Check Out
When he's not ruling the country world with Canada's finest in The Road Hammers, Clayton Bellamy is saving our souls with a Rock N Roll Revival with The Congregation. This is the latest single.
Swedish hard-rockers Eclipse have released what could just be their best album yet. Short, punchy, explosive tracks bursting with a catchiness that is almost unrivalled on their past albums. Album of the year contender!! Track 1 - Roses On Your Grave, my goodness! Grab your copy right here in the Rock Lives Here store.
Sydney's Dreamers Crime have just released their cracking album Here We Are. If you love your rock on the heavier side and rising anthems such as from the likes of Papa Roach, then this is well worth your attention.
Newcastle rocker Johnny has released a rousing anthem in Stand Up And Fight after a hiatus from music for a few years, he's returned with one resolve in his mind: to revitalise the art of the catchy pop-rock song. With this song, he's sure on the right track!
Suburbiasuburbia is more than just an artistic anomaly; they’re activists from the East Coast of Australia with a penchant for hard rock and blues whose unmistakable, distinctive musical style is a fresh breath of air. Suburbiasuburbia is dangerously prolific and continue their offensive with a new track Swifty Goes to the Shop.
Uncaged (Presented by Silverback Touring) is the newest rock festival on the Australian festival circuit and packs a punch of musical diversity catering to fans of hard rock, alternative, pop punk, prog, metal and everything in between. Read all the details here...
