Long Holiday are a powerful grunge two piece from Melbourne, packing an almighty punch of fuzz fuelled heavy riffs, loud drums and banshee vocals. Long Holiday took their latest EP Sunny Disposition on the road to UK & Germany in May 2016, when they embarked on a 3 week tour with UK Grunge rockers Honey. Following on from extensive touring of Australia, the band made their way to Java, Indonesia in November 2017 where they toured and rounded out the Indonesian experience by playing a show with Indonesia's biggest grunge act, Navicula.
Long Holiday released a single from their EP; The frenetic track "Everybody Likes You" is available as a free download here.The infectious spirit in which Long Holiday deliver their music is definitely a highlight - you can tell they enjoy crafting songs and playing together. Long Holiday are one fabulously morphed grunge beast delivering some hard and heavy rock. To witness them live is the true shining feature and adds testament that they don’t take it all too seriously. They make music that is fun, fast and furious, which the crowd always appreciates at their energetic live shows! Wailing vocals and hard-hitting drums all packaged up neatly in heavy-laden punk-fuzz.
After releasing their debut album "Greetings From..." in 2013, the band hit the studio once again and released their first double A side single "Insane". The song grabbed the attention of legendary rock producer, Beau Hill in the United States (Alice Cooper, Warrant, Ratt) who kindly offered to re-mix and master their new release which was launched in December 2013. You can download the track for free here: longholiday.bandcamp.com
'Greetings From...' is available now through iTunes and JB HIFI Australia wide.
"Sunny Dispostion" is out now on iTunes and Bandcamp.
The band are currently writing and recording, hoping to release their sophomore album in 2019.
