Like cockroaches re-emerging from the nuclear winter of the Coffs Coast music scene, hard rock/metal misfits The Outcome are poised to spawn a brutal new tinnitus-inducing chapter in their near decade-long existence.
It’s been two whole years since their self-titled EP was released, two whole years since that EPIC launch at the Hoey Moey. Not only are these dudes two years older… they’re two years ANGRIER! During this time they’ve had some good luck and more than their share of bad but their commitment to the band as not wavered. They’re longevity is a decent feat for five proud, stubborn guys juggling life, work, music and 12 kids (Outcomelets) between them.
The five-piece has been prolific in their search for alternative rock perfection, as evidenced by their massive catalogue of demo songs over the last 24 months. The problem is narrowing that list of massive, riff-heavy, melodic, abrasive goodness into a blueprint for the next EP.
“It’s extremely frustrating listening to our Soundcloud demos,” said bassist Tommy Wainwright. “The amount of catchy tunes and evil riffs we’ve written is just ridiculous.”
“Yet it’s almost impossible to agree on which ones we should record. But we’re getting closer.”
Among the new demos, several have made recent set lists and have been well received by punters.
“New tunes Collapse and Burning Cage have been particular favourites for us. Heavy, dirty, extremely fun to play and unmistakably The Outcome.”
While the new EP will be a much more brutal affair that the last, most likely much less ‘listenable’ too… you won’t be getting any apologies from The Outcome. In fact if you kick up a stink… the next one will probably be louder and scarier again.
