If you’ve ever wondered what it might be like if The Smith Street Band’s Wil Wagner fronted Fugazi (no disrespect to the legendary Ian MacKaye), you might get something that sounds like Melbourne outfit Bench Press.
The perfect combination of post-hardcore ferocity and Australian swagger, the band’s new single ‘Piece Of Calm’ is anything but. Make it the soundtrack for the next time you’re making a mad dash from the cops.
The band only played their first show back in March but are already a tight unit poised to stir up the local Melbourne punk and garage scene. You can check ’em out live on 22nd October with Overtime, Highschool Rivals, and The Curse.
