Who’s droolin for a ghoulin warehouse party? After a hugely successful Shredlam party earlier this year we are back with another huge lineup for Deadlam Halloween. Bringing together some of the best underground acts in hip hop, punk, surf and pysc from all around Australia in the gnar setting of the Serafini Chain Factory. Once again the lineup will be playing across two stages with nuclear ghoul decor and Sailor Jerry bringing the extra noise. Its an 18+ BYO event with presale tickets available here.
We shot the video for Ghost Towns over the course of 3 long nights with Brayden Doig behind the lens. We didn’t have a budget so we scouted around for gnarly locations around Brisbane including the abandoned Wacol mental asylum, an abandoned animal research facility and a fabled underground tunnel know as the Aquacave. The process of making the video was a thrilling experience as most of the locations felt like living a horror movie, there was even a near death experience by way of decapitation when trying to escape the Aquacave. The rest of the footage was shot in the studio at Bedlam apart from the very end of the song where you can see Ravi overlaid. That came from a video he made of himself in his basement which tops off the vibe of the clip. The video was inspired by and is dedicated to our brother Ravi Das, Resting Peacefully.
A few weeks ago good mates Drunk Mums and WOD stayed over whilst they were causing a ruckus around Australia on their “Plastic” tour. We had a rad weekend watching them play at a house party, Trainspotters in the city and hanging round the house drinking. With the absence of our regular cameraman, Jimmy G from WOD filled in. What a legend
