The Third Estate was spawned in a moment of intoxication back in 2003 in the small town of Albury, New South Wales.
Josh, former bassist of the band Over-surge was staggering along Dean Street when he bumped into another local boy Dan. He asked if Dan would like to join a band and that was the beginning of The Third Estate.
Bringing Dan on board signaled a fresh start for the all the band mates, Josh, Simon and Brendan.
Together they wanted to create music that was energizing and constantly pushing the boundaries of their talents.
With Josh on lead guitar, Dan on bass, Simon on drums and Brendan for vocals and guitar, they began making music in Joshís small, cramped bedroom.
Combining the musical influences of the four band members has got the group to where they are today. Joshís background in metal and hardcore, Simonís punk foundations, Danís interest in anything heavy and energised and Brendanís wide love of all rock is the recipe of their success.
This is The Third Estate debut ep "Conquest". The
music is dynamic, heavy, intense and energetic. The vocals blend
violent screams with croons and melodies, while the lyrics have a
purpose to enlighten, evoke and affect.
