For those who don't know you, describe Battlehounds.
We’re a three piece that loves fuzzy rock and roll.
How do you manage to achieve such a heavy rock dynamic between just the three of you?
To be honest I think a lot of that comes down to our equipment. We use a lot of fuzz and have some very bottom heavy amps so it makes up for only having three members. We’ve toyed with the idea of getting a fourth but we quite like the ease of the three piece and it works for us at the moment.
Your new single Visions sure as hell packs a punch! Can we expect more singles like it or a collection such as EP coming out soon?
We’ve been writing an EP for a while now. There are some similar ideas there but we also have some slower, brooding more psych stuff floating about. We’ll see, there’s hopefully another single out in a couple of months but the EP will be closer to the end of the year. We’ve got so many ideas, I think at last count I had 90 odd ideas/demos sitting on my computer that we need to sort through.
The film clip is epic too. As horror movie fans we loved both Visions & Ghost Mountain. Do you think you'll continue making super creepy monochrome clips?
All our videos are made by our old bass player Tom Stevens. He used to play in Kids With Teeth but moved to Sydney and now Melbourne for work. We give him full control on our videos so it’s panned out that way, but we love what he does and trust him completely so who knows!
You've been named by many in the local scene as a band to watch this year. Any bands you recommend we keep an eye on?
West Thebarton Brothel Party are an obvious choice because they’re so great but Archers are really turning heads at the moment. Their live show just gets better and better.
Any one else locally you're all spinning/catching live?
Glass Skies, The Dunes, Horror My Friend, all ripper bands and blokes.
Single launch this weekend and then a cheeky couple interstate shows, whats the plan for after the tour?
Knuckle down on this EP I think. We need to sort through these ideas and them happening!
WHAT: Battlehounds Visions launch w Miss Fellows WHEN: Saturday 28th, 5pm WHERE: The Exeter - Beer Garden
