DS Exclusive Interview: The Quickening, stream “Pistolaz”

The Quickening are veterans of the Brisbane music scene and are one of the hardest working, adhering to the DIY work ethic that punk rock forefathers instilled in the scene many years ago.  For those who aren’t aware of The Quickening then this is the time to get acquainted.  Known for their face-melting guitar work, exceptional musicianship and for being all round nice guys, we sent them a few questions to get more information.  We are also streaming “Pistolaz.”  The track was taken from their self-released 2009 album, “White Blossoms” which you can listen to in its entirety here.

We talked to Matt about the bands history, The Highlander series, the current state of live music and he touches on how “the internet is the new printing press.”  Check out the full interview here.  It’s a great read.

The band will be wowing crowds and melting faces at Spoonfest on Saturday (May 21) at The Step Inn.  You can pick yourself up a ticket here.
