10 years ago an unknown band from Perth, Western Australia pooled their very limited resources and questionable facial hair, and got to work on their debut album. Recorded in various spaces, in various ways, with a slightly varying line-up, they borrowed gear, they borrowed money, they borrowed space and they used some tunings that perhaps haven’t been heard again. The band were KARNIVOOL and the album that had so much blood, sweat, tears (and god knows what else) expended on it in those early hours was THEMATA.
2014 was a busy year for the world’s most relentless beard-themed band. They managed to record yet another album of songs about beards (The Beard Album); embark on their biggest Australian tour to date; receive a second ARIA nomination; and play to packed rooms throughout Europe on two separate international tours.
Now, The Beards are back in their homeland and set to sternly reiterate their steadfast message on their upcoming “Strokin’ My Beard Tour”.
