EARTH CALLER – BIO
Over the past decade Australia has become renowned for giving birth to some of the greatest heavy music of all time. Trailblazers such as Parkway Drive and I Killed The Prom Queen paved way for giants such as The Amity Affliction & Northlane to see worldwide success and recognition. Earth Caller are no exception to this legacy.
The 5 piece Hardcore/Metalcore act hailing from Melbourne, Australia combine the bare-knuckled hardcore sounds of First Blood, Terror and Madball with the crushingly heavy beatdowns of modern metalcore giants such as The Ghost Inside and of course their fellow countrymen Parkway Drive. However, what sets Earth Caller apart from the pack is that their devastatingly heavy sounds are delicately woven with the rugged, yet undeniably catchy/fast/melodic sounds of bands like Comeback Kid, NOFX & Bad Religion. Somehow the band manages to neatly wrap this all together with the hip-hop feel of Rage Against The Machine and the giant screamed choruses popularized by Linkin Park and Bring Me The Horizon.
Their debut release ‘Degenerate’, which the band released independently in 2015, charted at #6 on the AIR Charts and also found it's way onto national television, radio and magazines all over their home country. This is no small feat for any band, especially one that only had just released their very first record.
Much to the surprise and delight of the upcoming band, the hype they had built was not only contained within Australia. In fact, US major label giants eOne (The Game, Snoop Dog, Black Label Society, Unearth) could see this upcoming band’s worth and quickly snapped them up.
Meanwhile, across the ocean, European heavy hitters Impericon named Earth Caller one of the 10 Australian bands to check out and even gave them the honor of naming ‘Degenerate’ one of the top 15 records of 2015.
Since then the band have toured vigorously, racking several successful national headline tours as well as supporting numerous successful acts all across Australia.
Excitingly, 2017 is shaping up to be Earth Caller’s best year yet. With the release of the highly anticipated follow up to ‘Degenerate’ just around the corner, the band is ready for a massive year of national and international touring to support their upcoming release.
So, if you haven’t yet been treated to the fresh sounds of this killer Australian export - it is unlikely to be the case for much longer.
