Interview by CJ Nash
Victorian metal titans Frankenbok have witnessed somewhat of a rebirth since COVID, with their latest album Overdose emphatically proving that the band still have plenty to offer despite spending a quarter of a century doing the rounds.
Sonically, Overdose sees Frankenbok veering into fresh musical territory, drawing influence more from the punk side of the well than ever before.
As such, the band has also become highly sought after on the live circuit, with next weekend’s Moondoll Festival seeing the band finally return to the Sunshine State after a couple of aborted recent efforts.
As one of Moondoll’s headlining acts at the Mansfield Tavern on June 4 – alongside Kaosis, Kallidad, No No No No No, Seraphic, The Silencio, EAT CITY, Violet, Acid Cherry,Indiana Bones, Sacred Hearts, Skunkbone, Tailor Made Rejects, Ben Ely and the Spectres Of Light, Salt and Steel, Audio Reign, Viper Syndicate, Fumarole, The Wrath, Adriatic, DeadYet?, Supertrooper, Beast Machine, The Kindly Ravens, Your Man Alex Smith, Chiffon Magnifique and Brett Bites – Frankenbok plan to further enhance their growing reputation with a couple of QLD shows to show their wares.
Frankenbok also play Gold Coast Carnage Fest at Mo’s Desert Clubhouse with Kaosis, Void Matter, Ocean Shores and Azreal on June 3, before heading to Frankies Pizza in Sydney on June 5.
CJ Nash caught up with Frankenbok vocalist Dan McDougall to talk about the tour and more.
