Redcoats appeared on the Australian music scene with an arrival that was difficult to ignore.  The Melbourne band has been on a steady ascent, prowling the country with their brutally fierce live set, recently supporting the legendary Stone Temple Pilots and Papa vs Pretty.  Before they embark on a national tour with Calling All Cars, Redcoats are set to unleash their debut self titled EP on Friday 29th July.


Drawn together by their collective love of music, Redcoat’s musical endeavors started in the height of summer 2009. After crafting songs like ‘Giants’ and ‘Dreamshaker’, the band gradually worked their way into the thriving Melbourne live scene. With growing industry awareness, Redcoats were invited to showcase at the International Music Conference One Movement in Perth late last year. As their first track to radio Giants circulated across triple j and Rage, Redcoats ended 2010 with a gig at Pyramid Rock Festival and Violent Soho on NYE.

Recorded at Birdlands Studios by Rob Long (Shihad, Magic Dirt) and Lindsay Gravina (The Living End, Even), the EP will be released on Friday 29 July.  Released in March, their debut single ‘Dreamshaker’ was a triple j staple whilst earning rave reviews. ‘They sound like they’ve been playing together for thirty years…and there is no shortage of genius in this grinding, epic single. BEAT 16 MARCH 2011.  Second single Kay Trucker ‘has also followed in its predecessor’s steps, cruising onto the triple j playlist this week.
