To celebrate its release, VOIID will be touring along the East Coast this October and November with some special guests off the back of playing BigSound in September.

VOIID crushed their way into the Aus punk scene in 2016 with their debut EP ‘Pusy Orientated’, followed by 2019’s EP ‘Drool’ and 2020’s EP ‘Socioanomaly’. Their scorching live shows take no prisoners, and has seen them share stages with the likes of  GrinspoonAmyl & The Sniffers, Clowns, Cosmic Psychos, DZ DeathraysWAAX and more.

Anji Greenwood (vocals) and Kate McGuire (guitar, vocals) are teenage friends from Queensland’s Central Coast who moved to Brisbane and started the band with Mina Cannon (drums) and Antonia Hickey (bass). VOIID is their energetic power tool to amplify their frustration with the world and that of those who feel their voice is overlooked.
