Australian desert rockers FULL TONE GENERATOR have countless releases their belts, with them always writing, with newer music in the works! The band talks about their time together, music creativeness, and playing live some more.Find it all out right below!


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

We came together as a recording project between myself, Brad Young (guitar) and Brant Bjork (Kyuss / Fu Manchu), after touring together I asked Brant to collaborate on some song writing and it went from there! WE have also collaborated with other desert muso’s like Nick Oliveri and Dave Catching. We are now a fully fledged live and recording band with my good mates Brad (guitar), Matty (Drums) and Ben (Bass).

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

The name actually comes from many years ago, myself and my brother and a few friends used to book shows when we were teenagers under the name “Full Tone Generator” and we would just jam on stage, so no song writing or rehearsing, so I stole the name for this project / band!! It seemed really fitting for what we were doing now.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are based in Melbourne Australia but we do tend to travel all over, play a lot of shows around Australia and also venture over to the USA to jam and record as well as play shows over there. The scene here is actually really good, especially in Melbourne, lots of venues supporting local bands, my fav Australian band at the moment is “Kitchen Witch” from Adelaide, killer heavy blues based rock with soulful female vocals.

4. How would you describe your style?

Its Aussie Desert Rock!! We are heavily influenced by the Californian desert rock scene but were from Australia!

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We have two studio albums and a 7” out plus a live album. We are promoting our new album at the moment – “refuge of sinners”, it was recorded at rancho de la luna in Joshua tree California and we are super proud of it.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We are always writing and working on new music but for now we are just getting out on the road promoting our new record. WE have plans to return to USA to record next year with a new producer, its all a secret at the moment but we are also excited for that!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

YES! We have just finished our Australian tour and we are playing a few shows here in the next few months, then we are heading to Europe for a month long tour in November.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

We just love playing live, so lots of that and we will record a new album again next year and also tour the states while we are there.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

All the usual places!! You can stream on all your usual streaming platforms as well as buy our merch from Bandcamp - https://hurricanemusic1.bandcamp.com.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

The main thing people notice about our music is that we put a lot of effort into the song writing and I write from a pretty personal place, the lyrics are not just all cars and girls, its meaningful but the music is also primal, I would hope that the listener can hear that and that they can “feel” our music rather than just listen to it. I really hope people can make a personal connection to our music.
