As Paradise Falls Beat The Weather

Posted on by Mannequin Republic

On behalf of As Paradise Falls, Mannequin Republic would like to thank all you die-hard local music fanatics who made it out to the Mt. Gravatt show on October 27 for an early all ages Halloween surprise.

Despite the rain and miserable weather, fans turned out in droves to mosh around and let loose with Brisbane’s pop-core bad boys, As Paradise Falls and some awesome local bands, including Caspian, Portraits Of Pride, who launched their EP on the night, Dark Relic and Trepidation.

There were some killer costumes, natural born moshers and even a roundhouse kick to the head.  Most importantly there were great underground metal bands playing their own tunes to some great fans and a good time was had by all.

Thanks to Samuel Johannessen for putting in the hard work, organising the event and again to everyone who turned out.  We will do it all with you … more...
