Split Feed - Homesick     Metal/Punk, Rock, Garage 15/10/2018
Split Feed are a four-piece punk band hailing from Newcastle. Drawing on the stylings of 90’s and early 00’s punk, Split Feed have delved into a heavier, more mature sound
With 90s and early 00s punk rock firmly in their foundations, the anthemic new single is demonstrates how the four-piece have masterfully expanded to new heights, developing into a more raw, mature and modern sound. Brash, bold, and caked in addictive melodies and riffs, 'Homesick' is undoubtedly a Newy chant, one that is an ode to broken friendships and relationships.

AFFINITY MINUS PERFECTION - Intention Subversion     Metal/Punk 09/10/2018
Having released their self produced debut EP "Interpret As You Will" July of 2016, the band toured extensively, making it as far south as Coffs Harbour in NSW.
Intention Subversion is about "Hel", a being from Norse mythology. The lore changes slightly from source to source, but essentially the story goes that the gods deemed not brave enough upon death were sent to her realm and suffered for eternity. Lyrically and musically the song was a very different approach to what the band would usually lean towards.

Formed in 2015 through a shared love for bands such as The Chariot and Every Time I Die, the band quickly recorded and released their demo 'Send Me Far Away'
Clark says this new single Oscillate "is about remaining calm and collected while the world becomes more and more insane as the years go by. In 2018 it can be quite hard to switch off from world events and clickbait articles but life will always be better when you focus on you and your passions over the gossip and trash."

Vocalist for the band, Joshua Westwick, states that "Hypocrite creates the feeling that you are being cheated or lied to. With the chorus hook of "stay tonight" it tries to give a feeling of a twisted dependence on being involved with a hypocrite. It even suggests we are all hypocrites and perception is everything.

"Burnett Street, Part 1 - First Blood" was written in 2008 after a run-in with some local toughs at Haliday Park in Mitcham. It presents a biased and slightly sensationalised account of the events that took place on that fateful day.
