Drowning Pool In Brisbane

Posted on by Mannequin Republic


Mannequin Republic is absolutely stoked to have Drowning Pool make their way to Brisbane as they take on a national tour of Australia over July.  The Brisbane show will feature our very own A Breach Of Silence in the featured support slot.

During their debut tour of the USA, A Breach Of Silence were featured on Drowning Pool’s nationwide Unlucky 13 Tour.  Now, it’s our turn to play host as Drowning Pool comes to Australia to break it down with all you metal fiends down under.

The event goes off at Max Watt’s (125 Boundary Street, West End) on Thursday, July 28 starting at 8:00 pm.  Tickets, if still available, can be found at for $69.95.

A Breach Of Silence had the time of their lives partying with Drowning Pool in America, we hope all of you in Brisbane will come out and keep the party going here in … more...

Royale Treatment With Chronolyth

Posted on by Mannequin Republic


In one of the highlight events to close out the warm weather here in Australia, our very own Down Royale tore up the stage at Brisbane’s hottest scene club, The Brightside, to celebrate the launch of the new Chronolyth album Astrophy on April 29.

Mannequin Republic would like to thank the fine folks at The Brightside for putting this event together and inviting Down Royale to be part of the show.  Mad props to the other bands for rocking out with us, Chronolyth, Driven Fear and Worldlines.

Of course, it wouldn’t be any fun without all you fanatics who came out to jump around to some of the underground hardcore scene’s best sounds.  We hope to see you again at another Down Royale event in the very near future.

Keep checking back with our events page for the latest updates on Mannequin Republic bands playing near you.… more...

An absolute banger of a tour ripped through Australia’s major cities last May when Bayharbour took to the road with I Set My Friends On Fire over from the USA and domestic heavy hitters in Awaken I Am.

During the middle of the tour Bayharbour took the stage for two epic shows in New South Wales, including Newcastle’s crazy scene club night, Drone, at Hombre Records.

This all ages show was off the hook, but don’t take our word for it, check out this sweet 30 second highlight clip posted on the official Bayharbour Facebook page.
