Sat 20th Aug 8:30pm special guests Heads Of Charm
Hailing from Perth WA (arguably the grunge capital of Australia) long standing three-piece FOAM have returned to claim their distorted throne with the announcement of the first single “I Could Milk Myself” off their upcoming debut album (TBA), as well as a run of national tour dates throughout July and August.
“I Could Milk Myself” is a slow-burning melodic masterpiece - trading in the usual raucous volume we have come to expect from the trio on their previous EP releases Sarpa Salpa (2013), Run Kon Koma (2014), FOAM/Puck split vinyl (2015) and The Feeling Is Mutual (2015). Though considerably less loud, none of the intensity is lost here, and allowing the howling vocals to take the spotlight.
With influences including Nirvana, Nick Cave, Johnny Cash, The Breeders, The Drones and anything Steve Albini, and a solid reputation as a strong live band, their performances deliver a filthy wall of sound reminiscent of the alternative rock boom of the late 80’s/early 90’s. FOAM have toured Australia several times supporting acts including The Rubens, DZ Deathrays, Wax Witches and Sleepy Sun (USA), as well as playing MATES Festival, Big Day Out, WAM Festival, and Groovin The Moo.
