PANDAMIC Share ‘How To Be Happy’ EP + Announce Launch Party

“Another belter from Pandamic who will have the whole crowd in unison on this one!” – Declan Byrne, triple j Home & Hosed

“2021’s official F U anthem. In spite of the gory sentiment, I’m having such a blast banging my neck and shouting along with Pandamic on this one” – Dave Ruby Howe, triple j unearthed

“Pandamic has learnt from the best and has mastered the art of crafting a catchy tune” –Hysteria Magazine

“Pandamic are running for another breakthrough year, and while you can see their evolution with their new single Bus, a part of it feels like they’ve never left – in all the best ways” – Pilerats

Purveyors of punk-rock Pandamic have today released their thrashing ‘How To Be Happy’ EP out via Ratbag Records / BMG, including previous heavy-hitting releases BusFeel & Sweater.

Lead singer Rhys reflects, “When I’m feeling down, I tend to write pretty sad songs. But when I create something, it makes me feel happy. So as sad as a song may seem I feel like it’s able to make anyone who can relate to it happy. The feeling of not being alone. The reassurance that someone else has felt what you feel… Knowing that someone else has gotten through it, so you can too. This being said we felt like “How To Be Happy” would be a perfect name for the record”.

Pandamic have also shared their brand-new single Bleach, a nod to dealing with the daily grind and the struggles of mental health, with a thumping chorus delivering up lyrics like “And sometimes I wonder what bleach tastes like / And then I change my mind / I’ll say something dumb so my friends think that I’m fine”.

Now that the dust is settling & the world is slowly opening up again Pandamic are hitting the stage this December 10 for an EP launch show in Brisbane. They will also be hitting the road and supporting their buddies The Terrys on their rescheduled ‘Terrysonic Mixtape Tour’ early next year. Details below:


10 December | King Lears Throne, Brisbane
Hosted by Shaggy Knees + supported by Blussh & The Buzzing Towers


28 January – The Triffid – Brisbane
March 10 – Miami Marketta – Gold Coast
March 12 – Sol Bar – Sunshine Coast

Combining raucous riffs, rumbling bass lines, and relentless drum beats with catchy melodies and melancholy musings on heartbreak and humanity, Pandamic have a dynamic sound that captures the attention of audiences wherever they play from the first note.

Delivering up non-stop headbangs & soaring choruses, fans can sleep well at night knowing that the six-track ‘How To Be Happy’ EP is everything they had anticipated and so much more.
