Explosive Brisbane five-piece The Belligerents are set to take their dance frenzied, disco-pop live show on the road for a national tour in March and April to celebrate the release of their much anticipated debut EP Less Arty More Party.
The boys have played countless mind-blowing sets on renowned stages and at house parties - occasionally invoking partial nudity. Also in the midst of this wild year, the band got creatively intimate with Brisbane producer Timeshare at Temple Street studio and recorded a deeply charismatic four track EP. Channelling inspiration from Foals, The Rapture and Talking Heads, The Belligerents have crafted an entrancing musical work of art suitable for any party.
The core focus of the EP was to recreate the energetic live sound which the band is renowned for. “We wanted to concentrate on making a record which mirrors our live show, without the full blown production process of adding in heaps of things which we then couldn’t recreate live. What you get is definitely what you see,” said bass player Konstantin Kersting.

Fabulous Brisbane band The Belligerents once again in the sweatbox room. Note the almost futile sound damping measures. The boys are fantastic to watch. Get to a gig. - barry5112
The Belligerents are turning heads and awakening dance-floors around the country and the next couple of months will see them embark on an impassioned national tour to mark the release of Less Arty More Party.
