MASSIVE - NEW SINGLE RESET OUT NOW
Massive are a beer drinking, foot stomping, rock n roll band originally from Melbourne Australia. It is a hard hitting, high octane foot on the throttle modern take on 80s inspired rock n roll with big riffs, soaring vocals and hard hitting drums.
Things moved incredibly quickly for Melbourne rockers Massive after forming in Mid 2012. Within 6 months, they’d performed a number of showcase gigs in the USA, signed with management company Third Verse & were on the eve of completing their critically acclaimed debut album.
In 2013 the band took to the road supporting Glenn Hughes, Lita Ford and Australian heavyweights The Screaming Jets. The band signed a multi album worldwide deal with Earache records and immediately made plans to take their brand of rock n roll to the world.
Before too long, the full length debut album was front and center on the cover of Classic Rock Magazine. Billboards lit up the M4 motorway in London and press and media were repeatedly referring to Massive as ‘the next big rock act to emerge from Australia’ pegging Massive alongside, Airbourne, ACDC and some of Australia’s finest.
2014 finished with Massive spending 6 weeks on the road in the UK and Europe wowing audiences whilst performing as special guests of The Treatment & USAs Blackberry Smoke.
In 2016 the band released their 2nd full length record "Destination Somewhere" which again received worldwide praise. It reached 33 in the UK rock charts and 19 in the Australian independent charts. In late 2016 the band announced they were taking on their first headline tour of Europe. 40 shows including a main stage appearance at Hard Rock Hell Festival.
Having hardly refilled the tank, Massive began recording their 3rd studio album titled "Rebuild Destroy" and went on a national tour with Living Colour followed by UK summer festival scene, playing alongside heavyweights ZZ Top, Extreme, Rainbow and more. Rebuild Destroy debuted at number 1 on the Australian Independent and rock charts. The band continued their non stop touring schedule with a 54 date headline tour across 10 countries in 2018 including festival appearances at Raismesfest France, Rockingham, Hard Rock Hell,
Rock N Revel Germany and Stonedead.
In 2021 in the midst of the Pandemic, the band were forced to postpone several tours. This didn't stop the band. Despite living in 4 different cities in 2 different continents, the band tracked a new single titled RISE. The track was released exclusively on the NWOCR Volume 1 compilation which debuted at number 10 in the UK compilation charts.
With the bands 4th album scheduled for 2022, these road dogs from Oz are a well oiled machine, strap yourselves in, Massive will be drinking beers and smashing ears in a town near you.,
