About The Belligerents

Artist Enquiry

The Belligerents are excited to announce a national tour in support of their excellent album Science Fiction, out September 8. The band will play headline dates in Perth, Adelaide, Sunshine Coast, Wollongong, Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne, before closing out the tour with an epic hometown show in Brisbane. Joining them on all east coast dates is Sydney newcomer Bus Vipers, who recently signed to Future Classic.

The band’s frontman, Lewis Stephenson, on the making of the song: “Sonically I wanted it to feel polished in a unique way whilst still holding the core of a rock song.” Lyrically, Stephenson says he “wanted to bottle that inescapable feeling of being trapped inside a reality you can’t shake – a longing for escape.”

Recorded on a farmhouse on Stradbroke Island during the North Queensland summer, the album is a confident and expansive step forward for the Brisbane five-piece. The 11-song collection includes album singles ‘Caroline’, ‘Before, I Am’ and ‘Flash’, and explores the far reaches of worldly psych-pop.

Known for their magnetic stage presence, The Belligerents are ready to perform the album in a live setting for the first time. “As a band we've been holding back on playing the album tracks live for what seems like a really long time now”, says Stephenson. “We’re incredibly excited to get back on the road and play them to everyone who’s been with us on the journey so far.”

Six years on from their formation, no-one can accuse The Belligerents of being in a rush. Their debut full-length statement Science Fiction rewards the wait.
