Thread: Australian Bands

  1. #1

    Default Australian Bands

    Just wanted to see what you guys think of all the big acts coming out of Oz at the moment? Judging by their tour schedule it looks they're all on the verge of breaking it in the states and europe.

    The Presets = www.myspace.com/thepresets

    Evermore = www.myspace.com/evermore

    cut copy = www.myspace.com/cutcopy

    midnight juggernauts = www.myspace.com/midnightjuggernauts
