Guests: Shewolf, Chasing Lana + The Mean Times

THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+

Honest, powerful and provocative, Melbourne Alternative Rock band Pacing The Cage is everything a red-blooded rock aficionado craves. Charting at #2 on Triple J Rock, is a testament to hard work, craftsmanship and songwriting.

Blasting out of the speakers with herculean riffs and razor sharp vocal hooks, the debut album Intox by Pacing The Cage, is like a case of hand grenades with their pins pulled out. Working away on the record like mad scientist in a lab, Pacing The Cage has spent 12 months meticulously sculpting the finished product so that no detail is left to chance. From start to finish, Intox will leave you exhilarated that Rock Music for the socially conscience has found a home.

Intox (French for 'brainwashing') is a very personal record that explores very public subject matter covering topical ground as intense as the global refugee crisis, mental illness, #MeToo, political corruption and social equality. To deliver these explosive themes, Pacing The Cage wraps up powerful lyrics in equally incendiary music... a barrage of heavy guitars, thundering drums and towering vocal melodies.

Based in the Australian artistic nexus of Melbourne – undoubtedly one of the world's greatest cities for killer rock music – Intox reflects the proud history of the band’s hometown to perfection. An exercise in music idolatry as much as it is a master class in songwriting, Intox is both a brilliantly universal slice of rock and its own distinct voice, literally and figuratively. It is everything a red-blooded rock aficionado craves.

But that is not to say Intox is one-dimensional. Amidst heavy-hitting tracks like Whatever I Want, Tornado and The Devil Is Innocent are more delicate numbers like the pop-laden Tokyo and the simmering Tell Them It's War, where the band gets to wield subtlety as well as intensity. Over the course of the album, Pacing The Cage shows off a deep bag of tricks that will keep even the most discerning listener on their toes. Honest, powerful and provocative, Intox is as sincere as albums get.

While Intox was recorded together by lifelong friends Andrew Mullen on Guitar / Bass / Vocals and Leigh Thompson (Wishful Thinking) on drums, they have completed their line-up with Alex Cann (All The Animals) and Luka Panik (Slumberhaze) bringing the searing power of the album to the stage. This is the time for Pacing The Cage to shine and provide audiences with a musical experience to remember - absolutely nothing is going to get in the way.
