We are super stoked to finally announce the date for our debut album release.
This project has actually been a long time in the making as some of the riffs we've had, have been saved in our "memory bank" for two or three years. However, the whole thing clicked and came together only during the last 8-9 months.
Todd would be down in his room pretending to study as he was doing VCE (the final year of High School), while Kevin, Blake and Koby would be jamming together in the music room. It was not uncommon for Todd to ditch his "study time" and come into the room, asking: 'Could you play that riff again, cause I think I got some lyrics for it!' Bit by bit and piece by piece the whole thing started taking shape.
Obviously we drew all our inspiration from real rock music from all past eras (70's, 80's and the 90's), but we didn't want to stick to one mold. When one listens to Ex-Nihilo, you'll find a variety of sounds and genres - the crunching of Metallica and Foo Fighters similarities; the grunge energy of Alice In Chains, Soundgarden or Pearl Jam; the screaming guitars of the Scorpions and Velvet Revolver; or the punk riffs inspired by Green Day, Chili Peppers and The Offspring.
After all we are called Mixed Up Everything... right ;)
We hope you enjoy our first labour of love! See you all on the road... here, there and every freakin' where...
