MEET YOUR BANDS:
A two piece noise blues band from Auckland, With Max Leask on guitar/vocals and Josiah Weston on drums. We’re groovy, aggressive and want to bring excitement and loud energy.
Capricore are a four piece rock band based in Auckland, New Zealand. Mentored by musical icon Pete Warren of DD Smash fame, their sound takes influence from classic kiwi rock, filtering it through a modern alternative lens. Like hearing Jordan Luck or Dave Dobyn enter a world of post-punk, dream-rock, and grunge.
Guitarist and songwriter Aidan Ripley takes his lyrical influences from acclaimed songwriters such as Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, and Jeff Buckley. Bringing life in Auckland city to a surreal and esoteric landscape with songs such as “Dreamer,” “Don’t Shank Me,” “Yeah, Nah, Yeah” and “JAFA.” This is met with the punk based drumming of Caleb Gray, grooving bass of Jerrick Wilcox, and atmospheric keys of James Zambucka.
Afterlight is a progressive InstruMETAL melodic trio. Soaring leads mixed with hearty rhythms, provide a crushing yet melodic live set.
