It’s a big day for Melbourne’s Damaged Records, who today announce their latest signing: Brisbane punk four-piece, VOIID!
For VOIID, their rise within the Australian heavy community has been one that’s been marked by hectic live shows, music that roars with confidence as it does spirit. What started out as a group of mates finding a shared passion for music and over time, VOIID has flipped that passion into a formidable force that has made the Australian industry sit up and pay attention.
Damaged Records – founded by Melbourne punk favourites Clowns in 2018 – were also keeping a keen eye on how VOIID continued to kill it as recording artists and live performers. And now, these two beloved names have come together to work on exciting releases still to come!
First up, Damaged and VOIID have announced a special limited vinyl reissue of the band’s 2020 EP, ‘Socioanomaly.’ Shipping in November, this once-off run of records will be limited to 300 copies in both Red Translucent and Black/Red Marble.
“We love this band and the work they do. We can’t wait for you to hold a copy of this powerful 12” EP and hear some more of the band’s music currently in the works!”
It is the first time the ‘Socioanomaly’ EP has been pressed to wax; a powerful instalment in the VOIID catalogue, continuing the band’s stride to ‘reinvent the role of female’ and lend a voice to those in need.
“This is such a massive step for us as a band we can’t even put it into words. We absolutely love the team and cannot wait for all the exciting things we’re gonna work on together.”
Since 2018, Damaged has been home to Clowns, who formed the record label and booking agency to curate a platform for some amazing individuals to share their music in all its hectic, wild and fun forms. June 2020 saw Private Function sign with Damaged, making this VOIID signing the label’s third act to join the roster.
Currently, the booking arm of Damaged represents artists including Clowns, Bec Stevens, Batpiss, Drunk Mums, C.O.F.F.I.N and more.
