Brisbane hard rock band Flannelette are set to launch their new film clip for 'Hit The Valley' at the zoo on Saturday September 20th. Filmed and edited by Matt Campbell, the video clip will be premiered at The Zoo.

Joining Flannelette are Interim, Harlequin and Dead Zephyr.

The word Interim means “the intervening time between then and what is to come”, and the band INTERIM holds fast to that idea of living very much in the moment. INTERIM was formed in 2008, when front man Alec Snow drunkenly declared that he could ‘totally be a rockstar’ for a girl’s sweet 16th party.

What started as a joke soon became a passion and now 5 years on, best mates Alec, James, Jock and Matt are breaking boundaries in the world of alternative rock. Their eclectic mix of 90s grunge inspired vocals and heavy guitar riffs, layered over a fusion of alternative bass and percussion has created an unconventional mid-point between classic rock and alternative grunge that combines captivatingly in a live show.

The past few months have seen the band busy writing and recording, before kicking off their first national tour in June in support of their most recent single releases ‘She’s The Devil’ and ‘Jack’.

Their diverse sound makes for an infectious live show; experimenting with genres, heavy drum beats and catchy hooks, the boys have mastered the art of taking crowds on a musical rollercoaster of emotion. Quirky front man Alec Snow brings their live show to life, at one gig having rocked a skintight gold shimmering onesie. Nonetheless, the same can be said for the rest of the band (minus the onesie) as they light up the stage with a compelling energy that is no less than utterly enthralling.

INTERIM has come a long way since their humble small town beginnings. They’ve formed a solid, loyal fan base that is ever growing and eager for more. More songs. More sweat. More groove.

Harlequin. are the type of band whose songs don’t just make you feel something; they take you on a journey. The Brisbane-based ambient/experimental rock quintet create epic textures and soundscapes and pair them with lush and soaring melodies to create a truly transcendent live show.

From the very beginning Dead Zephyr has been all about the live show, with the boys rarely turning down a gig. For this band, the live show is everything. As Chris puts it, “Playing to people and making them feel what we feel is why Dead Zephyr exists.” Connecting with the audience and making jaws drop with epic riffs and heavy drums is what these guys live for!
