Maverick Announce Debut EP – State of Mind


Sydney’s Maverick are a band that could not care less what you think. And that’s why they will have Longevity. Coincidentally, that’s the name of their new single, the first taste of their new EP ‘State of Mind’. Longevity drops today along with a new filmclip – one you have to see to believe!

The EP will be released on Friday March 16 and can be pre-ordered on iTunes and all good digital outlets from today and physical pre-orders can be purchased at Longevity is available to stream now in Spotify and Apple Music.

In a clip that probably had a lot of the neighbours’ heads turning to see what the ruckus was running down their street, the outfit (with a little help from their friends) run down a suburban Sydney street, roughing each other up, tumbling all over the joint and in what is surely a tribute to the prank shows of the 2000s (a la Jackass, The Dudesons, Bam Margera et al), the guys smash fluro lightbulbs, smash trolleys into each other tackle each other into objects and generally make some irreverent noise in the suburbs.

Their brand new 6 track EP is titled ‘State of Mind’ – and it was recorded at Karma Sound Studios in Thailand and will be released through Dogfight Records.

Maverick are legit. Running amok in Sydney’s gritty southeast from an early age the Maverick boys are no strangers to good times, pits or Sunday morning tins. These five individuals live the lifestyle they write about and their attitudes and ambition are as heavy and large as their sound.

In a time when everyone is playing to a crowd or changing to follow the latest trend, it’s refreshing to have a band that could not care less what you think. They are a band that has zero concerns that Monday morning is fast approaching and calling in sick is no longer an option. It’s a headline slot to the masses or nothing – and they’re not leaving when they’re told. Maverick are coming in hot, bounce with them in the pit or end up under it!

Just when you were starting to think stage dives and singalongs were a thing of the past…

Dogfight Records are incredibly honoured to announce that after 11 years, Sydney’s own TAKING SIDES are reforming and bringing back their hard hitting, in your face hardcore punk to the stage, February 10th at the Red Rattler.

TAKING SIDES played their last show in 2005, when they called it a day after three solid years of touring and two albums, SMASH THE WINDOWS TO THE DEAD HEARTS and DRESS CODE, when family and career commitments became a larger priority. The guys hung up their instruments thinking their futures held dad life and being a regular punter at shows. Until now…

Now over ten years on and with the current state of the bands that are referring to themselves as “punk rock” and “hardcore” these days, TAKING SIDES couldn’t of picked a better time for a comeback!

Friday 10th of February, The Red Rattler Marrickville
TAKING SIDES, The return of..

Supports to be announced.

Tickets on sale 9am, Monday the 28thNovember through Oztix.

ad support flyer



Hailing from the city of Baltimore, these guys don’t fuck around when it comes to making rock music. You like the Lemonheads and the Bad Brains at the same time? Of course you do. This is kind of like that, but less heroin involved. ‘Rock The Fuck On Forever’ isn’t just the name of their new LP, it’s a fucking command. ‘Rock The Fuck On Forever, is a short burst of an album that packs a ton of melodic power into its 13 short tracks. It’s a supercharged album, one that never lets up even when its harmonies are soaring.


After extensive touring across America and Europe with a Japan tour just announced the time has come for Australia to get its first taste of Angel Du$t when they hit our shores end of September.

Joining them are Sydney’s Primitive Blast, comprised of members from bands such as Relentless and Mood Swing you know this band would pack a punch before you have even heard them and they never cease to deliver. With a brand new 7” coming out Primitive Blast are a band to watch out for over the coming months.
