Mayqueen, Adelaide melodic hard rock that will blow you away by means of soaring, punchy vocals backed by meaty, savage riffs and shredding solos, in combination with the pure, tangible energy and overwhelming sense of enjoyment that radiates from the stage wherever they may go.

With influences such as the mighty Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Hendrix, Audioslave, Soundgarden, Jet, Powderfinger and The Foo Fighters, Mayqueen strives to bring rock back in to the ears of their generation

Mayqueen's current line up came to fruition in 2009.
This year saw the bands first release "Gotta get out," (Independent release, available for purchase at shows and selected record stores) after gaining their chops gigging a large percentage of Adelaide venues, leaving many a bar soaked with sweat and beer.
Their debut single, the title track from the EP was played on Triple M in Melbourne and Sydney 5 nights in a row as a part of Radar Radio's unsigned segment on the stations request show, hosted by Ugly Phil.
To top off a great year, Mayqueen placed 2nd in the Local and Live Band Competition held at the Bull & Bear, battling against 31 other local Adelaide bands. As a result they won a two track recording deal at Sody Pop Studios, with both tracks to be produced by Alex Tomlin.

2010 saw Mayqueen achieve just as much. In March they headlined Carclew's Off the Couch Rock Show at Jive in front of a packed crowd. They were voted best act for the evening, and were awarded a free day of recording at Fattrax Studio as a result. They also managed to again achieve a second placing in the 2010 Local and Live competition. This set in motion the writing and recording of their sophomore EP, to be released early Spring 2012.

In the lead up to this, the band will be releasing 2 singles, the first of which "What You Leavin' For?" Available now and "Rudely Beautiful" (May 1st)

The launch of "What You Leavin' For?" took the band on it's first journey across state borders to play their first Victorian show at The Bended Elbow in Geelong. It was a great success and has the lads very excited for their planned national EP launch tour.

2012 is looking like it will a big year for Mayqueen, so stay tuned to the rise of one of the future great live acts of Australia.
