Feel like you're missing something in your life? Well, it's probably because you haven't discovered local fellas Goonbomb yet. If you're into bands like Dune Rats, Skeggs, Hockey Dad and King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, then add these lovely bunch of lads to your playlist and get ready to indulge yourself into a mix of garage, punk, rock and psychedelic sounds.
November 2015 was the day history was made when members Ricky (Vocals/Guitar), Punda (Drums), Joe (Guitar), Daniel (Bass) and Jack (Keys) came together and created something unique that had audiences cheering for more. Describing themselves as "a result of too much alcohol" and "it's a rock band man", these boys have definitely lived up to that expectation and may have even excelled in the best of ways. Sadly, Joe and Jack had to depart from the band to continue on with their studies; however, the band believes that although they have never played as a three piece yet, they will continue to bring as much energy and excitement to the stage that they have in previous gigs. Well, bring it on boys because Adelaide is ready for ya!
Drummer Punda spoke to us about how the band first kicked it off.
"Well I had gotten into contact with Ricky over social media somewhere around mid-2015. We started off learning a few Hockey Dad covers and writing a few originals. Around the end of that year, I asked Daniel to join and that was the 'beginning' of the band. Later on, we had recruited Joe and that's what really pushed us forward as Goonbomb. Shortly after we played our first gig at the Bluebee Room and I guess the rest is history".
With Goonbomb absolutely smashing the local scene, they've managed to grab a couple of gigs out of state, congrats fellas! If you wanna catch these mad-men and see them smash out a stellar performance, head to the Format on the 31st of March and get ready to head-bang your night away.
Their anticipating single release is closing in soon, keep an eye out for when the banger is released into the wild. To be updated on everything Goonbomb, head to their facebook page Goonbomb and their Instagram @goonbomb_band.
