Final Confession

Posted on by Mannequin Republic


Mannequin Republic would like to thank everyone who was part of the Confession farewell show in Noosa that took place on January 8.  One of the biggest names in Aussie hardcore has thrown down for the last time and we were stoked to have Bayahrbour as part of the final line up.

Apart from Confession, who played every show as if it were their last, the other bands on the card, Graves, Undermine The Supremacy and Holistic played their hearts out and left the crowd on an epic high.

Major thanks to the Villa Noosa Hotel on the Sunshine Coast for hosting the party and providing a space for us to rock out, as well as Resist Records and Beats Cartel for organising the event.

Continuing to ride the media train, A Breach Of Silence’s bassist and falsetto vocalist, Blair Layt, had a good long chin-wag with Wicked Liz on Wicked Chick Radio 247, broadcast out of Chicago, Illinois in the USA.

Blair went to the limit, spending an hour chatting about the band, their experiences driving across America with Like A Storm and Drowning Pool, future plans for their new recording project and returning to America, playing the Glen Barrie tribute show, the cliches behind “The Time Remains” and everything else from religion and terrorism to needing a bodyguard and Montana jaw surgery.

It is an epic interview, interlaced with some choice cuts from the recent The Darkest Road album.  We strongly advise you to download the full episode and give it a listen by going to
