“It’s a moshpit monster!”

Nick, Fake News

Queensland melodic punk upstarts Fake News have successfully managed to bring together the attitude of punk, the essence of rock and the harmonious balance of nature into one uniting sonic force of cohesion that is almost impossible to resist.

Since forming in the beautiful surroundings of the Gold Coast in 2017, Fake News have steadfastly refused to adhere to societal rules, instead focusing on producing their own brand of infectious grooves that has struck a chord with every lover of music who has crossed their path.

Their 2021 debut album Everyday Warrior was widely regarded as amongst the albums of the year, with its unassuming yet edgy sound appealing to a broader fanbase than any one of their number of genres could hope to reach on their own.

They followed that with last year’s EP, Take Me Away, which furthered the band’s momentum and this week Fake News delivered the knockout blow with the catchy as fuck six-track EP Time & Place.

Nick from Fake News joined HEAVY to discuss the EP and the musical revolution that defines them.

“It’s pretty bloody good,” he smiled modestly when asked about Time & Place. “If you haven’t listened to it, yet you probably should because you will enjoy it. I promise you.”

With the EP being released a few days ago on May 29 we ask how it feels to finally have it out there and open for the world to judge.

It’s great,” he sighed. “We’ve been hanging onto it for too long. It’s been sitting there waiting and getting all the pieces in place that you’ve gotta have when it comes to releasing music. We had a few singles come out in the lead-up to it and that was all good, but it’s great to get the EP out there and say this is it. This is what we’ve been working on. Just to see people’s reactions to it, and it’s been going pretty well – and that’s what we expected. We haven’t changed our style much. We’ve stuck with the tried and true formula that we love, and other people love, so you can’t go wrong with that.”

In the full interview, Nick talks more about the EP musically, runs through each track individually and tells us more about them, releasing EP’s as opposed to full albums in the modern age of music, the significance of the title, Time & Place, upcoming shows and more.
