Biography

Newtown’s self-proclaimed shittest band are a driving force behind Australia’s DIY pub rock scene. Having joined Chicago’s Twin Peaks on tour with Skegss across the country for their ‘My Own Mess’ Tour, SCABZ were straight back at releasing a new single – Brett Lee’s Got No I.D (And He Can’t Get Into World Bar)

When they’re not passionately protesting for their beloved Victoria Bitter Co. to unblock the band’s social media accounts, they’re touring relentlessly. Politically charged, grating and funny as ever, SCABZ provide direct and unapologetic protest in the Mike Baird-defying ‘Locked Out’ and cowbell-doused tales of chasing tipsy smooches in ‘Beach Song’.

Their newest releases are a testament to SCABZ technical and expressive growth, and guitarist and vocalist Siobhan Poynton’s increasingly thrilling style of guitar playing; SCABZ are closing in on a full, reckless and energetic sound that no other act in Australia can match. These beer-loving goofs will release an EP in 2019 and head out on more tours and play more shows and drink more beers.
