From what literally saw a bunch of kids from Gympie rehearsing in a tin shed go on to play some of the most iconic live music stages around the country and overseas, Red Beard certainly have defied all odds and expectations. 

Releasing their debut EP Enigma, the quintet from the sticks have conjured up stellar reviews from blogs, street press and music magazines all around Australia giving them a rating of 95. 

Their singles Fox Tale and One Love received airplay on over 40 radio stations and they also received kind words from the likes of Triple J, and AMH Network. Fox Tale was also the most requested clip on Channel V through most of December 2013.

After a busy touring schedule that included being on the road with The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus (USA), The Sweet Apes, Gay Paris and The Getaway Plan, Red Beard will head to the studio in March 2014 to record with Jeff Sahyoun of letlive and Troy Brady from The Amity Affliction. 

2014 will also see the band once again extensively touring Australia and internationally, playing festivals, clubs, house parties and underground basements. 

Flogging some synth-flavoured heavy metal in a blaze of fog and red lazers. The band’s huge energy was matched and doubled by the showmanship of vocalist Tom Rooney.

To say that they were impressive would be a gross understatement. The group played a tight set that was as fun as it was proficient, with front man Tom Rooney displaying a kind of energy that is very rarely seen at all.

I didn’t expect those monster neon synths to come in after such a dark start but you’ve really smashed out a indie-dance anthem here.
