Statues are a progressive hardcore band from Perth, Western Australia. Since their foundation in 2009, Statues have become renowned for their extremely high energy live shows, treating everything and everyone as a part of the performance. In 2015 Statues released their debut record, “Together We’re Alone” to fantastic critical reception, Sputnik Music described it to “be mind-blowing in both craziness and shear heaviness.” Following the release of the album Statues went through a line-up change with the departure of Jayme Van Keulen (Vocals) and Dan Harper (Drums). Statues approached an old friend and guest vocalist on Together We’re Alone; Alex Shom to step in on vocals and local young gun Matt Unkovich to play Drums. After releasing the line-up’s debut single “Dogswamp” the band knuckled down to write what would become their most ambitious work to date. “No Grave, No Burial” is a concept album set in the heart of a civil war, the character must find safety by leaving his home. To escape he must lose loved ones, battle his own demons, face who took all he knows and uncover a horrific truth at the end of his struggles. He fights to find freedom, only to uncover further persecution and a bleak reality.
