Bandintexas are not a band in Texas nor are they banned in Texas, Bandintexas are Sydney based all girl indie punk pop rockers and are celebrating their 2014 debut release The ABCD-EP.
Formed in 2010, Bandintexas consists of four Ladies, three instruments, two microphones, a megaphone and one of the most engaging live rock shows you'll ever see.
After three years of rock n roll refinement, countless live shows, line up changes, late nights, light bulb musical moments, tears and the embraces that make everything okay again, 2014 brings the official release of Bandintexas’ The ABCD-EP and finally gives loyal fans something to take home.
The EP is a culmination of tracks written and recorded since the bands inception. Described as “a manic musical journey, from the heights of melodic pop rock to the depths of dirty indie punk.” This release proves that the ladies of Texas mean business.
Bandintexas are not your typical rock band; they are defined by their live show. The combination of eclectic tunes, audience interaction, stand up comedy style mid song patter and songs so catchy you will literally be singing along on first listen, make a Bandintexas show one that you should not miss and one you will certainly not forget.
The ladies are just about to hit the road on an east coast tour to celebrate their first release. The tour started with a show on Saturday June 7th at The Espy in Melbourne, with Sydney, Newcastle and Brisbane to follow.
The official first single from The ABCD-EP is White Mouses. White Mouses is the grammatically incorrect brainchild of Bandintexas Guitarist Sophie Bollen. “The song is about not being quite connected to everything around you. About the isolation we can feel, the paranoia, the fear, the madness, the repetition of thought and the beauty of accepting your own personal version of insanity. We're all a little bit crazy in our own way.”

The second single is Disco Blood Bath. This is their 80’s inspired punk rock disco moment. Synths, Guitars and energy reminiscent of the girl bands they loved in the 90’s. Loyal Sydney crowds go wild whenever they play this track. This is the ultimate cocaine fueled midlife crisis, where you buy a Harley, find a younger woman, get a bad tattoo, act like you are 20 again and completely fuck things up.
