Planet of the 8s

Who are we chatting to and what do you do in the band? We are the collective groove of Sullo on lead vocals and lead bass, JC on lead guitar and lead backing vocals, and Pete on drums.
 
What do you reckon people will say you sound like? We're getting comparisons to Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Queens of the Stone Age, and Faith No More in parts. None of that’s a leap. It’s big and groovy. There’s guitars.
 
What do you hope listeners will take away from the album? An intense journey through space and time, the excitement of the heavy and the reprieve, the chaos and the long-winding rabbit hole. The anticipation of flipping the vinyl.
 
If you could travel back in time and show one of your musical heroes your stuff, who would it be? We need not go back in time. There are musical heroes out there now entertaining their ten friends down the local pub or pumping up ten thousand in some paddock. We want to impress them as they impress us.
 
What can we expect from a Planet of the 8s show? A hazy recollection of awe, wonder and that nagging riff from that song you can’t remember the name of but it goes duh duh duh dah...to Shazam. Shit where’s my phone?

Planet of the 8s will launch their self-titled debut album at The Retreat Hotel on Friday October 27.
