With The Flattrakkers entering their eighth year in 2012, you can’t help but wonder what’s in store for this innovative band. After a successful third album Winner Takes All in 2011 and two previous albums Speedcar Demon and of course High Octane still selling strong across the globe, excitement is building and the punters are wanting more.
Well, we can tell you this – the booking calendar is filling up locally and nationally with the recruitment of new drum sensation Cameron Overend with the boys just returning from New Zealand’s Beach Hop Festival and soon to appear at Cooly Rocks On in June on the Gold Coast – that’s just scratching the surface. There are songs being written and ideas for another album in the not too distant future.
What sets these boys apart? Well you only have to listen to their unique rockabilly sound, which is completely original as they write their own songs and stay true to their own successful formula. Their live shows carry so much energy and fun, throw in a few popular covers and you will definitely be coming back for more, more, more! The Flattrakkers’ music has been used in film, commercials, hotrod DVDs, speedway promotions, online radio, music compilations etc. These boys have well and truly staked their claim in the very popular worldwide rockabilly scene.
Catch the Flattrakkers this weekend at Cooly Rocks On – Friday at Seagulls Club, Saturday at the Cooly Hotel, Sunday at Rockabilly Stage Griffiths St and Monday at Cooly Hotel.
