Maverick are a 5 piece punk/metal band from the South Eastern suburbs of Sydney. Fitting a genre isn’t an option and their track history of shows is testament to that. From playing with US legends Unwritten Law to local heroes Trophy Eyes and Hellions, not to mention consistently featuring on some of the heaviest lineups in Sydney, the guys constantly find themselves entertaining fans of a variety of different music tastes. With their debut EP State of Mind in the bag and out in the world, the crew have their sights set on bigger stages in 2019 – with their new track ‘Nothin’ To Lose’ refining the band’s unique sound.
Nothin’ To Lose will see it’s release this Friday October 19 ahead of a glut of East Coast tour dates in November! The single will be available to purchase and stream at iTunes/Spotify/Apple Music/Amazon and all good digital stores and streaming outlets.
The tour takes the rogue-ish band up and down the East Coast – from Wollongong to Rad Bar on November 1, Canberra at Phoenix Bar November 7, then November 8 at Australian Music Week’s showcase at Carmen’s at Miranda, on to hometown Sydney November 10 at Chippendale Hotel, and blowing out the tour at Newcastle’s Hamilton Station Hotel. Tickets to the Nothin’ to Lose tour will be available at maverickworldwide.com.au from today.
Taking elements explored in that EP much further than before, Nothin’ To Lose is a sign of the maturing sound of the band. Pushing the rhythmic elements of the mix, Maverick tried to create movement through sound. For them, the track has now grown to a place that acts as an open platform for what’s possible with their songs to come.
Lyrically, the song explores the concept of removing things from one’s life to focus wholeheartedly on what is really important, something one learns being in the early stages of a band’s life cycle. Everyone has things that act as ‘Energy Vampires’ in their lives and being able to identify them and effectively remove them is essential for progression. The hope is that the track can inspire others to take a look at where they’re spending their time and potentially make changes for the better.
The EP ‘State of Mind’ EP was released earlier in 2018 through Dogfight Records. ‘State of Mind’ was recorded at Karma Sound Studios in Thailand. In a time when everyone is playing to a crowd or changing to follow the latest trend, it’s refreshing to have a band that could not care less what you think. They are a band that has zero concerns that Monday morning is fast approaching and calling in sick is no longer an option. Maverick are coming in hot, bounce with them in the pit or end up under it!
