Like any young band, House VS Hurricane started as an idea amongst friends, a way to create something that the members themselves wanted to hear.
Fast forward two years and House VS Hurricane have grown from a promising local talent to one of the most rapidly rising acts in Australian heavy music today. After accompanying Bullet For My Valentine (UK) on their sold out Australian trek in January 2009, House VS Hurricane went on to perform at the Melbourne leg of the mammoth Soundwave Festival, as well as supporting Misery Signals, The Devil Wears Prada and our very own Parkway Drive.
2009 also saw the band headline two of their own sold out national tours before departing for the US to record with famed producer Brian McTernan, who has worked with everyone from Thrice and Hot Water Music to Circa Survive and Darkest Hour.
The end result is House VS Hurricane's stunning debut full-length, Perspectives.
Both newcomers and fans of the group's debut EP Forfeiture â which has sold just shy of 4,000 copies with limited distribution â will be impressed by the juxtaposition of unbridled heaviness and ambience that is displayed across Perspectives' twelve-tracks, a sound that is often attempted but rarely executed with this much success.
