THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+

Bands evolve from album to album as the lives of its members, and their music tastes, continue to change. That’s particularly true in the case of Columbus, whose debut album was entitled Spring Forever, but its follow-up A Hot Take on Heartbreak has seen the Brisbane trio opting for a dramatic change of season.
“On Spring Forever we went into the studio and did exactly what we wanted,” recalls Columbus’ singer/guitarist Alex Moses of their debut. “But after touring that record and it coming time to do a new one, we realised that the music we wanted to play was distinctly different.”
“We didn’t want to be a pop punk band anymore,” elaborates Alex. “We didn’t even want to be a punk band anymore. We wanted people to know us as a rock band.”
A Hot Take on Heartbreak will certainly leave listeners in no doubt about that, or that this change has harnessed excellent, if surprising, results.

“We’ve learned that we don’t have to be serious all the time,” explains Alex, “though the new record still has some of the seriousness we had before.”
These include Care At All, which tells the story of someone actively ruining a relationship because of their behaviour, with lyrics that shift between the person inflicting the damage, and the person on the receiving end; the aforementioned Difficult Conversations, penned by Alex producer Joel, and enriched by the addition of piano, about how a lack of communication can bring about the breakdown of a relationship; and Cut It Out, musically the heaviest track on the album.

“We’re at the point now where the band has done a lot of really cool things,” says Alex, citing tours with You Me At Six and Real Friends as highlights. “We had big dreams on the first record, but it ended up being a bit of a reality check. It’s not like you release one record and become the biggest band in the world – it takes a few years. The You Me At Six tour showed us to play big rooms, with a band that’s transcended their scene to become a big act in their own right. That’s what we want.”

In broadening their style, and with it, their horizons, Columbus are on their way to making that dream a reality, with an album that provides a fresh take on musically catchy, lyrically interesting rock. Grab it while it’s hot!

Columbus are: Alex Moses (vocals/guitar), Ben Paynter (bass/vocals) and Daniel Seymour (drums).
