Once upon a time (Ok, 2007), they were called The Follow. If you can find their first EP ‘Happy Now’, produced by Nick Launay. It’s a corker gem of glam rock and roll.
Cut to 2016, and these days they’re called THE ART (after countless line-up changes and the threat of legal action from a US band called The Follow) and are about to release their next full length album ‘All in the Mind’.
Spearheaded by original members Azaria Byrne and Kara Jayne, THE ART have pretty much been living the rock dream over the past few years with some of the best support slots in the country: The Pixies, Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Linkin Park, Thirty Seconds To Mars, BRMC... Just to name a few. Last year the band spent close to a year in the US and Europe touring with American group Faster Pussycat on a bus and barely made it back to Australia in one piece.
The band recorded their new record at Electric Sun Studios, with producer Stevie Knight. Check out their latest single ‘Minute To Madness

After recently signing to Golden Robot Records, THE ART's second full length album 'All In The Mind' will be released later this year!
