Full Scale

From wiki :

 

Full Scale were formed in 1998 in Perth as Full Scale Deflection. By 1999, they consisted of Ezekiel the Ox on lead vocals, Nic Frey on drums, Chris Frey on bass guitar, Forrester Savell on synthesiser, and Jimmy Tee on guitar. Matt Crute (aka Crutey) soon replaced Nic Frey on drums. Rob Kaay replaced Chris Frey on bass guitar by 2000.[1] They released the album, Symptoms of Chaos, on 11 November 2000. The band dropped the word Deflection from their name and then moved to Melbourne in 2001. Despite playing their original songs for some of their shows, they developed new music.

Kaay and Andrew McGuiness (a lawyer) formed a record label, Popstar Records, and Full Scale released their debut extended play, Black Arrows in March 2003. This was followed by a second EP, White Arrows in August.[2] There was a brief line-up change; Tee left the band, being replaced by Tristan Ross for about six months. Under the management of Kaay, the band toured the east coast extensively.

According to Allmusic‘s reviewer, Johnny Loftus, “the band’s hard-hitting, gristly sound – led by Ox’s vocal seethe – caught the interest of American majors”.[3] By the end of the year, Tee rejoined and the band moved to Los Angeleswhere they were signed to Columbia Records (SonyBMG)[4] and released their self-titled album, Full Scale, on 8 March 2005.[5] After the album’s release they toured the United States as the opening act for US rap rock band, Hed PE.[6]

Upon returning to Australia, Crutey and Tee decided to play one last show with the band and Ben Brennan (Seven, Full Scale Revolution) played his first show with Full Scale on bass guitar at the Corner Hotel in Melbourne on 17 March 2006. Ox moved on to a new group, Mammal.[5]

In January 2016 Ox and Tee announced that they were reforming the band with a new rhythm section of Chris Webber (Webbsy) and Leigh Miller. They announced February 2016 tour dates in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

The band released a new song entitled “Jurassic Graveyard” in January 2018, and embarked on a national tour of Australia.[7] So far, no new album has yet been announced.

Here is their 2 LP’s. Enjoy.
