Pop Punk Is Alive and thriving in Australia and one band who is leading the pack at the moment is Syndey's Stand Atlantic who are on the verge of releasing their new album Pink Elephant on Friday through Hopeless Records so naturally, we had to get frontwoman Bonnie Fraser on the show to chat about it. A true pioneer for being yourself, Bonnie's hilarious antics online shine through her personality but also she takes time to reflect on the more personal side of her life which she shares through her strong, metaphorical (yet hard-hitting) lyrical content, something the band have nailed on this new release. Podcast host Browny and Bonnie, both members of the LGBTI community, also share a moment to offer insights to their personal life in hiding (back in the day) and serve up some helpful advice for those struggling with their sexuality, identity and hilariously remind you that there's nothing wrong with who you want to bone! We've also enlisted the help of Wall of Sound's resident pop punk expert Tamara May to bring you a plethora of upcoming and established bands flying the flag for new age pop punk from Australia and around the world. Featuring bands like Yours Truly, Grenade Jumper, Neck Deep, Sleep On It, Homestate, Paperweight, Hot Milk and heaps more...See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Every so often, a great Australian band crosses your path and you've just gotta check them out because you never know, you could be missing out on your next fav discovery and that's how we feel about ADKINS from Tasmania who popped up with their debut album The Wrong Side of Fame and have since won us over. The boys grew up with old school metal loving parents and that influence has continued on through their music as frontman Sam Adkins discusses on this week's podcast. Podcast host Browny dives deep into the band's early beginnings, their diverse debut release and if their band name is a situation akin to that of Bon Jovi (named after the last name of the frontman). Get to know the lads and hear a collection of tunes from their new album. We also take a look at Chester Bennington's first band Grey Daze and their new album Amends, as well as Seether's Latin influenced new album Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum and what it means. There's also throwbacks from Pearl Jam, Audioslave, Stone Sour and Metallica, New Music from Evanescence and Bring Me The Horizon + heaps more!#WoSUATW #ADKINS #AustralianBands #TheWrongSideOfFame #HardRock #Grunge #Metal #GreyDaze #ChesterBennington #PearlJam #Evanescence #BreakingBenjamin #Audioslave #StoneSour #CoreyTaylor #Metallica #Seether #BringMeTheHorizon #BMTH #InHeartsWake #WallOfSoundAU #Podcast #MusicPodcast See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

There's no other band on this earth quite like The Ghost Inside. They've overcome one of the most tragic events ANYONE could ever go through and they've returned to the music scene with what we've dubbed the PERFECT comeback album which is out on Friday and to celebrate, we grabbed drummer Andrew Tkaczyk for a chat all about it. Join podcast host Browny as their pair discuss the tragedy the band overcame, their slight deviation from the metalcore genre that made them a household name and, despite the curveball life threw at them, how they jumped back on the musical horse and refused to give up. Turns out Andrew is also a mad keen horror movie fan and you have to hear about some of the incredible memorabilia he's collected over the years, including one piece which manages to scare the shit out of anyone who sees it for the first time. We also take a look at the chaos across America surrounding the wrongful death of George Floyd, the serious issue in our own backyard with over 400 deaths of Indigenous Australians in police custody (which have gone unanswered) and the tracks I Prevail, Fever 333 and Sum 41 released over the past week which are more important now, than ever. There's also New Music from Emmure, In Hearts Wake, Attila and Northlane, throwbacks from The Beautiful Monument, A Day To Remember, Bring Me The Horizon and more!#WoSUATW #TheGhostInside #TGI #EpitaphRecords #InHeartsWake #Polaris #AlphaWolf #Emmure #Attila #BringMeTheHorizon #BMTH #Northlane #TheBeautifulMonument #ADTR #ADayToRemember #IPrevail #Fever333 #Sum41 #TheShowMustBePaused #InThisTogether2020 #WallOfSoundAU See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Love. Loss. Hope. Overcoming. Four big words used to describe the story of love and the fallout that sometimes occurs, something with PVRIS frontwoman Lynn Gunn has been writing and singing about for years and this week we get to go inside her mind as she co-hosts the latest episode of our podcast and you better believe it's gonna bring up a whole bunch of emotions you should probably address. Podcast host Browny goes deep with Lynn about their forthcoming album Use Me and their incredible Hallucinations EP which the band dropped last year and took the world by storm. Hear her stories, her heartbreak, how she didn't want to write songs about certain people but gave in when they become something so special that had to be shared with the world and hear her advice for those going through a similar situation. There's also plenty of new music to churn through including Angels & Airwaves, Fame On Fire, The Pretty Reckless, The Ghost Inside and a throwback to your MySpace phase with Cobra Starship and Aussie newcomers Necronata!#WoSUATW #PVRIS #LynGunn #UseMe #Hallucinations #AngelsAndAirwaves #AvA #CobraStarship #Necronata #MySpace #FameOnFire #Reliqa #AustralianBands #TheGhostInside #Cliffhanger #MusicPodcast #WallOfSoundAU See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

When a band grabs your attention the second they take to the stage and you're stuck in metal awe for the duration of their set, you HAVE to follow them up and see what they're all about afterwards hey! Well, that's the story behind how we discovered DREGG last year at Big Sound. The band who cross genres more then we cross borders these days have been fats making a name for themselves in Australia with their wacky on-stage antics, costumes and hardcore sound which, caught the attention of Epitaph Records who signed the lads not too long ago. This week frontman Chris Mackertich joins the podcast to chat all about their signing amidst a world struck down by COVID-19 and what this means for them moving forward. He also discusses the band's plan to not follow suit of what other acts are doing, to stand out from the pack and be themselves + his ideas for creatives (and anyone else stuck in self-isolation) to pass the time and make the most of this situation. Podcast host Browny also takes a look at the coronavirus parody band Vermicide Violence who teamed up with YouTube star Jarrod Alonge to release their pandemic deathcore anthem which went viral amongst the heavy music community! There's plenty of new tunes from In Hearts Wake, Make Them Suffer, Trivium, Lamb of God, Virtues, Fit For A King and heaps more so jump in and cure your boredom!#WoSUATW #DREGG #AustralianBands #EpitaphRecords #InHeartsWake #Virtues #FitForAKing #MakeThemSuffer #VermicideViolence #JarrodAlonge #Malevolence #Trivium #LambOfGod #AugustBurnsRed #ParkwayDrive #WallOfSoundAU #Podcast #MusicPodcast See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Violent Soho are back baby and they've got a brand new album under their belts which they're keen to show off to all of the supporters who have helped them along the way in their 18 year career as a band. Guitarist James Tidswell joins the show this week to chat all about Everything Is A-Ok getting released at a time when everything in the world is pretty much the complete opposite to the album's title and the band's progression and (for lack of a better word) maturing sound on the new release. He also shares a very special moment he had on last year's Good Things Festival run when he got the opportunity to meet his musical idol and inspiration Mark Hoppus and the wholesome AF encounter his daughter had with the icon, on stage, during their set in Brisbane. Grab the tissues, it's pretty good! Podcast host Browny tries his best to lift the spirits of those of us in lockdown while this dreaded coronavirus strips us of our fun and free time by getting on a bunch of classic tracks of yesteryear from Nirvana, Hole, blink-182, Vast and Smashing Pumpkins as well as showing off the new breed of Australian alt-rock bands keen to take over including Dear Seattle, LOSER, Sly Withers and Being Jane Lane.#WoSUATW #ViolentSoho #JamesTidswell #AustralianBands #SlyWithers #LOSER #DearSeattle #blink182 #MarkHoppus #BeingJaneLane #Nirvana #Hole #SmashingPumkins #Grunge #AltRock #Dregg #MusicPodcast #WallOfSoundAU See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

We're back with music industry veterans Silverstein who are celebrating two decades in the heavy music scene and the forthcoming release of their tenth studio album A Beautiful Place To Drown! Frontman Shane Told is this week's podcast guest and he's ready to bare all for the fans who have followed them from day one or jumped on the bandwagon recently. He discusses the importance of finding the right record label to sign to (especially after being in the game for as long as they have), their almost disastrous appearance at UNIFY Gathering earlier this year and Browny even plays a game of "I Wish I'd Been Told... With Shane Told" where he grills the vocalist about topics he wishes someone spoke to him about before starting a band! There's also new D.R.U.G.S. too... err the musical kind, as Craig Owens returns to his game changing band Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows and offers up his first taste of new music in almost ten years! Talking about New Music, we spin the latest ones for Spiritbox, ATLVS, Slowly Slowly and Lauren Babic, throwbacks from SKYND, Wage War, Beartooth and more!#WoSUATW #Silverstein #ShaneTold #PostHardcore #Spiritbox #DRUGS #DestroyRebuildUntilGodShows #CraigOwens #LaurenBabic #WageWar #SlowlySlowly #Beartooth #ATLVS #SKYND #MusicPodcast #WallOfSoundAUSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
