About FREESTATE: The combination of raw power and melody make for a powerful beast and Melbourne's FREESTATE launched their debut album with enough raw power and melody to quickly scale the heights of the Australian heavy rock scene.

With integrity and musical abilities akin to The Butterfly Effect and Karnivool and riffs that would make any Wolfmother proud, FREESTATE bring a presence which bridges the gap between the underground and the commercial, and pushes the boundaries of rock music genres.

Forming as FREESTATE in Melbourne in 2002, selecting a name that pertained to the state of freedom that their music brought to their lives- emotionally, spiritually and physically.

In 2006 the band began recording demos with producer Ricki Rae and throwing the results up on their MySpace. While surfing around one night, director of Sydney label Crusade Records Tom Vernette discovered the band and chased them down until he had their signatures.

"I was online one night and a friend of mine sent through a MySpace URL of a band they'd found. I had a listen and knew straight away that it was the right band for Crusade," said Vernette. "FREESTATE are the real deal both live and on record and it's an exciting project to be on board with."

Surrender is as solid a debut as you are likely to see from any act. With strength and groove in tracks like Twice Alive, hooks galore in tracks like Man Who Couldn't Lie and experimental sounds in Necessary and Phoenix, FREESTATE show themselves to be a band assured of both where they are and where they are headed....

Album out now in all stores. (Distribution Sony/Modern Music)
