Brisbane based alternative metal outfit Flynn Effect are announcing the release of their new EP Monument on Friday, July 6. The Brisbane-based band are celebrating this release with a first taste of the EP, a new single and video entitled “Believer”, along with announcing tour dates in June!

Pre-orders for the EP are available now from The new single ‘Believer’ is available for streaming on Apple Music and Spotify. The band are embarking on single release tour dates in June in Newcastle (Hamilton Station Hotel June 22), Sydney (Hideaway Bar June 23), Brisbane (Back Room June 29) and Melbourne (Workers Club July 1).

Vocalist, Tomina Vincent, comments:

“Believer is the perfect representation of the change of direction we had been heading towards for the last year or so, and it was never a question, this was always going to be the first single, no matter what came after. It’s one of the most optimistic and uplifting songs we’ve ever written. Its a song about love in all its forms, whether its friendship or a passion for something, and the belief that love is our strongest weapon.

Believer is heavily inspired by Pendulum – It’s got lots of nerdy synths and grooves and we just love how it turned out. Our biggest ambition with this track is to put a smile on people’s faces, and I certainly hope we can achieve that, it would be our greatest reward.”

Flynn Effect’s ambitious live performances have seen the band share the stage with rock and metal royalty, including Lacuna CoilWednesday 13Davey Suicide and Seether, as well as share the stage with Australian heavyweights Orpheus OmegaOsaka Punch and Darkcell. In 2018, Flynn Effect is embarking on a new journey with the release of a new EP and a national tour in its support.

The new clip highlights the live performance of the band – Tomina muses that

We knew straight away that Believer was a track we needed to film live. We’ve always put a lot of work into our live show and we use lots of cool stuff like pyrotechnics Co2 effects and our own automated lighting system, but we never quite put that on film before so it made sense to introduce new music that way. Believer was filmed the very first time we ever performed it live and it was very important to us to capture our fans’ reaction and make sure we included them in the video. We also filmed at the now-closed New Globe theatre which was very sentimental for us as we’ve launched both of our albums there and it was an honour to be one of the closing shows at that iconic venue, and also have something to commemorate it by. We worked with the Incredible Adrian Goleby and his crew, and I think he really brought it all to life in a beautiful way. We hope you enjoy it!

Flynn Effect’s forthcoming EP will be out on Friday, July 6, with Pre-Orders for the EP available now. The single, ‘Believer’ is available on Spotify and Apple Music for streaming. National tour tickets on sale now via
