UNCAGED Welcome MOLLY & THE KRELLS For Music Festival

Share This:

After being delayed since last year due to the dreaded Spicy Cough, Australia’s newest – and Aussie bands only – festival Uncaged is finally within sight of the first show in Sydney on April 23.

Uncaged features an eclectic collection of bands, covering everything from rock to punk to metal and bringing them all together under one banner to provide a diverse line-up of bands that will have something to please everyone.

Wolfmother, You Am I, Magic Dirt, The Superjesus, Killing Heidi, Tex Perkins and Shihad head the one day festival which will visit Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne, as well as a host of local bands such as Twelve Foot Ninja, Bodyjar, Tumbleweed, 28 Days, The Hard-Ons and more.

Sydney punk/rock outfit Molly & The Krells are along for all three shows, with vocalist/ bass player Blake Cateris joining HEAVY to chat about the run of shows and what it means for the band to play all of the shows.

“Man, it’s…,” he measured, “we were surprised when we got asked to do it. I was like, let me ask the guys, and then he said do you want to just play Sydney or do you want to do all of them? And I said, is that an option? Of course, we want to do all of them, so it came out of nowhere but Danny has always been a big fan of Molly and what we do, and Danny and I have quite a few musical similarities so we always bonded over that.”

The lineup of bands covers many genres, with the diversity of music a main feature of Uncaged.

We press Cateris on what he thinks Molly & The Krells bring to the festival.

“For diversity, I reckon,” he shrugged “From memory there are not a lot of poppy, punky bands that are on the bill and I think it adds for a little diversity and a modern touch to what’s going on in that line-up. Not to say the other bands are old, but in terms of what’s happening these days there are just a handful of acts. It’s good to have a bit of youth and some young bloods on the lineup.”

In the full interview, Blake talks about the bands he is looking forward to playing with, what the band will take out of performing alongside some heavyweights, where he sees Uncaged heading in the future, tips on lasting the day, what we can expect from their set, whether the band will be playing any new songs, their last single Silver & Gold and the response it received from Rolling Stone, future plans and more.
