In the middle of last winter Zombeaches took over the rickety old shed on the foreshore at Pt. Leo Boat Club and recorded their debut album, Cheers to the Future.


It signified a distinct shift in tone for the band who had, up until now, worked in tightly controlled studio environments where producers would chop up takes and piece them back together. But this time in a big open plan space with tin cladding looking out over Western Port Bay towards Bass Straight, set right in between the houses where they grew up, Zombeaches began to mirror the sounds they’ve been making in big rooms around Australia.


In between lockdowns this year, the band has been able to get together for rehearsals and recording sessions. In mid-June, they went in to The Moonah Arts Collective in Rye and recorded a cracking set of their new songs. We have the pleasure of sharing this live set with you when it is premiered on Garageland on August 25, so pop that date in your diaries and keep it locked to PBS.


Zombeaches. Recorded at The Moonah Arts Collective and presented on PBS Studio 5 Live on Garageland at 8pm on Tuesday August 25, proudly sponsored by our friends at Mountain Goat.
