“We’ve naturally changed as we’ve grown up and got better as musicians.”


Gold Coast rock/punk outfit The Wrath have been on a rollercoaster ride since the release of their track Wrong Side in August of last year.

The band completed a residency late last year at Movie World World Fright Nights, opening their music up to a whole new fan base, and were then announced on the bill for The Other Festival which is set for The Tivoli in Brisbane on January 28.

The Other Festival is headlined by COG and Osaka Punch, with a host of local bands including The Wrath, Minds End, Rhino, The Stranger, Mass Sky Raid and plenty more ready to blow the roof off one of Brisbane’s most iconic music venues.

HEAVY caught up with vocalist Tommy Creeper to chat about the show and more.

“It’s a bit of a mixed bill with all sorts of different things on there,” he pointed out, “so we’re looking forward to it.”

With a line-up consisting of progressive metal through to all-out aggression, The Other Festival definitely caters to a large cross-section of music lovers, with Creeper nodding in agreement.

“I always believe a mixed bill is for the better,” he agreed. “It just makes for a better day, a better gig, and brings more people out.”

When asked what playing at a festival like this means to The Wrath the smile on Creeper’s face widens.

“It means that… it’s great to be playing with some of those bands,” he beamed. “I guess it makes us feel like we’re doing the right thing and doing well to have people ask us to play alongside bands like that. We’ve never played at The Tivoli before after all these years, and we’re pretty excited about that.”

In the full interview, Tommy talks about the response to Wrong Side, if it’s part of a bigger album picture, the band’s 20th anniversary this year, the early days of The Wrath and their initial vision, changing with the times and trends of music, the many genres that go into The Wrath’s music and how they come together, the residency at Movie World and more.
