Newcastle Unearthed Winners 

PALS are an alternative rock band from Newcastle, Australia. Having formed in early 2015 the band joined local Newcastle label No-Fi Collective with fellow Novocastrians Vacations and Raave Tapes, releasing an Ep titled ‘Spring’ and a split release in early 2016. In the past year PALS have released and toured their debut album, “Inbetween” playing shows across the country. The band have been lucky enough to share the stage with acts such as Cloud Nothings, These New South Whales, Horror My Friend, Pist Idiots, WAAX, Skegss, The Gooch Palms, West Thebarton, Dear Seattle, British India and many more. In doing so PALS have become known as “One of Newcastle’s best and most raucous emerging bands” –The Newcastle Herald (2016). With reviews from Society of Sound and Life Without Andy, high-charted ratings on Triple J Unearthed, numerous plays on indie radio stations in Australia and internationally and plays on Triple J’s Short Fast Loud and Home and Hosed program, PALS have had a busy year. PALS recently released their new single “Consumed” in April, creating interest in their next single due late 2018.
