"Eight Miles High Festival @The Zoo (10/12/11)"

Brisbane’s own Howling Rabbits started the night on an unprecedented high note; as the crowd slowly trickled in, they were greeted by the band’s own strand of psychedelic stomp-rock. They played familiar tracks for those who had been acquainted with the band before and so received a warm reception, and a setlist that easily won over newcomers with quirky eclecticism interwoven into classic rock. Venturing into the darker depths of psych and coming back with a punch, these guys presented an overall refined sound with the soul and seduction of The Bad Seeds, infused with old-school contagiousness—their rhythms had the audience hooked before they even realised it. Stand out tracks included the eerily seductive Killerman as well as the shoulder-popping track Cut Me I Don’t Bleed providing evidence of the scope of this five-piece to keep your eye on. - Faster Louder

"Eight Miles High"

Howling Rabbits start this evening’s showcase of all things psychedelic with their own brand of incense-scented rock & roll. Throwing in Doors-y keyboard licks with a wealth of catchy garage riffs, the band’s heady mix of psych and hard rock provides an early highlight. - Rave Magazine

Beware the Hunter - LP
Mixamatosis - (remix EP)



Howling Rabbits play their own brand of stompy psychedelic rock. Often descending to darker territory than the vintage sounds they draw upon. Eerie reverb swirls amongst fuzzy guitars, fueling psychedelic breakdowns. Driving songs which range from playful surf rock to spaghetti-western inspired epics.

Consistently delivering mesmerising performances, the band strives to redefine what modern music-goers have come to accept as a live show. After enjoying the quiet release of their debut album [Beware the Hunter] in 2010, and receiving rave reviews for their live shows, Howling Rabbits setup studio in guitarist Cameron Nicholls’ basement in pursuit of what they hope to be hints of their second full length album.

After a long cold winter of cabin fevered studio work. Howling Rabbits resurfaced in the second half of 2011 with handful of new demos and a score of new songs. Using the burning desert as a backdrop to tell a tale of paranoia, lust, yearning and the supernatural, Howling Rabbits are sure to ignite minds, ears and eyes in 2012. Sporting themselves as a five-piece with a formidable live show, Howling Rabbits are (Leith Jacobs - drums, Steve Graham - bass, Cameron Nicholls - guitar, Shaun Paton - keys, Steven Appleton - vox, guitar & keys).
