Dept. Of Gloom have a musical pedigree and backstory that would take hours to dissect. The sum of their collective parts reads like a short history of Australian rock with their members coming from bands such as The Candy Harlots, Genitorturers, JERK & Dead Inside The Chrysalis.
They bring the old and forge it with the new. Modern/Vintage. A poison pill coated in candy, where analogue meets digital. The sounds, riffs and attitudes of the seventies and eighties rock n roll heyday collide in a wonderful, head-on smash with the twenty first century.
A firey twin guitar assault, driven supercharged bass and drums against a shimmering backdrop of electro synths, topped off with three distinctive lead vocalists… Dept. Of Gloom hearken back to a time when bands were rockstars and rockstars were heroes!
With a look that is an extension of each of their distinct personalities, louder and darker than most, but never louder than the music, Dept. Of Gloom have been crafting their sound for over a year now.
Dept. Of Gloom tracked their debut single My Ruin (Is U) in 24 hours of stolen studio time with the music video being shot during the same session. It was mixed and mastered two weeks later and is out now via iTunes, Spotify and all digital platforms…
The band will make their debut live appearance on Saturday, July 22 at Frankies Pizza, Sydney.
