Dear Chester, I only realised a few days ago that it’s nearly been a year …
Brisbane based prog rockers, Sum of Us have brought their latest technical masterpiece, Eleven Tigers, to the light.
The track is the final taste of their upcoming debut EP, Sharp Turns in Dark Tunnels, slated for release on Friday, 13th July.

Eleven Tigers serves as the follow up to previous releases, First Yawn and Forrest. In recent months, the five piece have also released a short documentary about the creation of the EP (which you can watch right here), giving fans a fly on the wall insight into their supergroup like formation and the credo of the band in general.
Sharp Turns in Dark Tunnels is available for pre-order now through all good digital music platforms. The band worked with local Brisbane outfit Head Atlas on the production of the EP, which was recorded and mixed by Joel Myles and Chris Lait and mastered by Mike Cave.
Aptly named, Sum of Us is a collective of members from Red in Tooth, Kodiak Empire and Osaka Punch, and blends the chugging riffs, slamming beats and groovy quirks of all three to produce one tasty mix. The band formed in 2017 and have since played their first show supporting In Hearts Wake, Young Lions and Stepson. Following that, they also played their own invite only absolutely packed to the rafters show in Crowbar’s Church space.
Sum of Us are Jamie Swanson on Guitar, Jeremy Field on Guitar, Jasper Webb on Bass (Red in Tooth), Bryce Carleton on Vocals (Kodiak Empire) and Dane Pulvirenti on Drums (Osaka Punch). You can check out Sum of Us here Spotify Bandcamp Facebook page.
