Bayharbour have been taking some time out behind the scenes to regroup and recover after a massive string of shows in mid-2015, playing alongside several of the biggest international acts to come to Australia so far this year.

The new track is called “False Fortunes” and marks another turning point in the band’s career as they continue to play with mainstream international acts like Chelsea Grin as well as headline their own shows.

As Paradise Falls vocalist and frontman Ravi Sherwell recently sat down for an interview during the band’s recent headlining tour of New Zealand at the end of June.  The homegrown Kiwi blog/zine Music Is Dead got ahold of Ravi and took away some very interesting insight on the Save Yourself EP.

In the interview Ravi goes over his mental attitude during the writing process, becoming a more positive person and the message he wants to get across in the music.  There is a lot of discussion on mental health awareness and suicide prevention, a topic that has been a big concern for many of us recently in Australia.

You can read the full article on the Music Is Dead website at http://musicisdead.org/2015/06/18/as-paradise-falls-save-yourself/ and go through it yourself.  Whether your a fan of As Paradise Falls or interested in the thought process behind the writing process, it’s a good read.  Check … more...

On behalf of the band, Mannequin Republic would like to thank everyone who came out to see A Breach Of Silence headline the epic May 22 show at The Triffid in Brisbane’s Newstead area.

After an unforeseen cancellation for their last scheduled appearance, the band had a lot of making up to do and by all accounts the delivered in force with one of the best A Breach Of Silence shows ever seen in Brisbane.

Major thanks to the venue, who have a first rate facility which is a lot of fun to play.  Mad props to all the bands who took the stage for this gig, including Free Thought, Weightless In Orbit and First Sight.

Great crowd and powerful atmosphere that night.  We hope to bring A Breach Of Silence back to you very soon.… more...
