Brisbane is about to get a new local music festival featuring a large spread of Australian and New Zealand bands that promises to reinvigorate the live music scene and interest on a massive scale.

To be held on November 12 at the Mansfield Tavern, Kaiju Fest: The King Of Festivals will be brought to you by Nash Management, Rail Records, Heavy Mag and the NZ Music Commission. Bringing the return of New Zealand’s Industrial powerhouse Kaosis, this is one festival you do not want to miss!

Featuring two stages worth exciting bands, Kaiju Fest is selling beyond expectations already so organisers suggest getting in quickly to secure your ticket.

HEAVY‘s CJ NASH caught up with Froggy, bass player and backing vocalist for one of Kaiju’s emerging bands Sang-Froid to chat about the show.

“We formed at the Flower Mill in Toowoomba in 2009,” Froggy explained of the band’s origin. “That was back when we had another bass player, and we’ve gone through a few changes, but it’s always been us three who have stuck around. I was singing originally, and then the bass player left, and I’ve always been inclined to play bass, so I thought fuck it, he’s gone, we need a bass player here we go. I’m just gonna put it on and go for it. Thirteen years later, we’re going pretty good. In 2020, we took on the challenge of releasing a song every day of the year.”

In the full interview, CJ finds out more about the song a day challenge, what to expect from Sang-Froid at Kaiju Fest, future plans and more.
