A Lonely Crowd is a four-piece Experimental/Progressive/Math Rock outfit from Melbourne, Australia. Following the launch of their debut album ‘User Hostile’ (released June 18th 2011) the band have toured in and around Melbourne and Sydney, including shows with Aussie heavyweights such as Cog, Dead Letter Circus and Closure in Moscow.
They have received excellent reviews locally and overseas, including a 5-star review on ProgArchives.com for their album. “...with plenty of fantastic harmonies, creative voicings, genius compositions, and so much more, this debut leaves little to be desired for the listener… A Lonely Crowd have successfully pulled most of the strings to attain the truly "unique" card, a descriptor I rarely give to bands... I have just about fallen in love with this album, and I am very excited to hear more from this young Aussie band. 5- stars.” Andy Webb – Prog Archives (Heavy Prog Team).
They are currently completing their highly anticipated second album, which will be ready for release in early 2013.
