"I can't remember where it was but I saw a photo of some legend's map of SA tattoo with a few bands inked on it too like Bad//Dreems and maybe Horror My Friend. They better save some space for this band too."
- Dave Ruby Howe, Triple J Unearthed
The Burnside Mums are an Adelaide band with a unique take on contemporary Australian punk rock. With influences and members from far and wide, the Mums' sound has steadily grown over time to hit a chaotic crescendo of visceral lyrics and rolling riffs. Songs of hardship and mental anguish colour their works, all with a distinctive confession from front man Jason Katsaras.
Recently the group supported Adelaide heavyweights Grenadiers and played a string of residency shows at the Grace Emily before winning the Music SA ‘Beer Band Competition’ and opening the main stage at the Beer and BBQ Festival. With all this under their belt, we're now pleased to announce their newest single release 'Grassfires'.
Listen to 'Grassfires' on Spotify Apple Music or Triple J Unearthed Here!
They'll be celebrating the release of Grassfires with single launches in both Adelaide and Melbourne. If you're into relentlessly loud and sweaty live music then don't miss either of these shows:
Adelaide: 17th of August at the Crown and Anchor, with It’s a Hoax, Mercs and Oopsie Daisy.
Melbourne: 31st of August at the Reverence Hotel Front Bar with Jungle Breed and Ricky Albeck (duo)
