Aussie rock band Assassins has signed a new record deal with Golden Robot Records.
From 1981 – 1989, Assassinshoned their skills around the pumping Melbourne pub scene, developing a distinct rock edge. It was only in 2015 that Craig, Andrew and Eddie’s paths crossed by chance and Assassins sparked a new beginning.
Assassins’ music has been described as an honest, exuberant, “wall of guitar sound” with a proto-punk rhythm section. The vocals stand on the shoulders of the sound, with lyrics that draw from lived experiences and the ebbs and flows of life.
It’s with this righteous fervour that Assassins are receiving enthusiastic reviews, both among their grass-roots communities, live and online. Testing the waters on Soundcloud with Confidence track ‘Time Away’, saw the song receive close to 5,000 listens in less than two months. A praiseworthy feat for a band returning to the fold thirty years later.
