INTERVIEW (audio): Big up the Aussie Massive!

Aussie rock ‘n’ roll band Massive have created a bit of a buzz over the past 12 months. Notwithstanding the boost in publicity from glossy music press ‘Full Throttle’ album giveaways and the high-rotation offered by rock radio stations, Massive recently landed themselves a tour slot with UK rockers The Treatment on the ‘Second Bite’ tour along with Buffalo Summer (also tour support) and they’ve been getting rave reviews.

Jarrod and Brad pondering…

When the tour with The Treatment ends, they head over to Europe supporting Earache Records labelmates Blackberry Smoke.

Being their first experience of touring the UK and Europe (it won’t be their last), we spoke with Brad Marr (Lead vocal/Rhythm guitar) and Jarrod Medwin (Drums) to find out their thoughts on the crowd’s response to their full throttle (pun intended), no-holds-barred, fist-in-the-face shows.

We began by the boys talking about breakfast…!

Catch the remaining shows with The Treatment: Monday, 20th October at The Joiners in Southampton, Tuesday, 21st October at Exeter’s Cavern and on Thursday, 23rd October on Brighton’s seafront at the Audio.

Europe, you’re in for a treat…

Win a copy of ‘Full Throttle’ on CD in our Massive competition

With thanks to the guys in the band Massive and our friends at Earache Records, we’re giving you a chance to win a CD of Massive’s debut album ‘Full Throttle’ which has been revamped with four new recordings and is out July 21st.

massive‘Full Throttle’ is a breakneck all killer, no filler record which is brimming with attitude. Tracks like “One By One” fuse aggressive and anthemic choruses with fun-filled solos whilst the bass-heavy, testosterone-soaked “Dancefloor” is more sweaty circle pit than glitzy ballroom. The menace and grit of the band comes out in tracks like “Big Trend Setter”, which is an egotistical explosion of pure rock ‘n’ roll arrogance. “Now or Never” is a white-knuckle joyride with enough G-force to make your head spin, and the middle-finger-to-the-man numbers like “Hollywood” will whip up any crowd into an anarchic frenzy.

Musically, the band keep it simple and direct, with high-energy tunes set around infectious, rabble-rousing choruses that bring out the rabid rock ‘n’ rollers in the most sterile of crowds.

Massive have already been featured on the front of Classic Rock Magazine and they recently stepped into the studio to record 4 more songs to add to “Full Throttle”, including two new tunes and covers of AC/DC’s “If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It)” and Aerosmith’s “Rats in the Cellar”.

The band have also confirmed their first visit to Europe, beginning with a slot at the Hard Rock Hell festival in November. We’ve also heard that Massive will be looking to play a few additional gigs around the UK while they’re over.

Enter the competition by answering a simple question about Massive’s new album and if you’re correct, you could be in with a chance of winning a copy of ‘Full Throttle’!

Only entries submitted through this form will be accepted:-

The competition will close on Thursday, July 17th, 9pm (UK time): The lucky winner will be announced shortly after the competition closes, live ‘on-air’, during next week’s show. Sorry, but this competition is open to UK residents only.

Good luck!

Fist swinging, riot-starting, girlfriend-stealing, punch-in-the-face rock n’ roll! Big up the Aussie Massive

MassiveFullThrottleHi-octane rockers Massive stake their claim for greatness with their debut album “Full Throttle”.

Displaying a work ethic worthy of any of their Aussie compatriots, Massive think nothing of regularly traveling a thousand miles across Australia for a single show, and often return home battered and bruised. Their war stories are littered with live shows abruptly pulled by frightened security, or venues cutting the power mid-set. A self-funded trip to tour the West Coast of America involved avoiding arrest for bringing back most of the crowd from one of the shows to their hotel for an after-hours party.

“Full Throttle” is a breakneck all killer, no filler record which is brimming with attitude. Tracks like “One By One” fuse aggressive and anthemic choruses with fun-filled solos whilst the bass-heavy, testosterone-soaked “Dancefloor” is more sweaty circle pit than glitzy ballroom.

Massive are, Brad Marr – Vocals/Guitar, Ben Laguda – Vocals/Lead Guitar, Aidan McGarrigle – Backing Vocals/Bass Guitar and Jarrod Medwin – Backing Vocals/Drums.

“Full Throttle” is released on Earache Records on July 21st.
